The Uri josh doesn’t seem to die down anytime soon. Based on the 2016 surgical strike conducted by Indian Army, Uri: The Surgical Strike starring Vicky Kaushal and Yami Gautam in lead roles has wiped out competition with its hit run at the box office. Earning Rs 2.13 crore on Friday and Rs 4.60 crore on Saturday, the film has earned a total collection of Rs 207.13 crore. Film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the latest trade analytics on his official Twitter account.
Leading the pack at the cinema screens, Uri: The Surgical Strike is followed by Kangana Ranaut-starrer Manikarnika. Co-directed by Kangana Ranaut, Manikarnika chronicles the tale of the bravery of the queen of Jhansi Rani Laxmibai. In its third week, the film has managed to earn a total collection of Rs 88.45 crore. With this, Sonam Kapoor-Anil Kapoor’s latest release Ek Ladki Ko Dekha To Aisa Laga has failed to make a mark at the box office.

It’s not just a line anymore… I get so many “How’s the Josh?!” videos from you all everyday, each one made with so much love and passion, from schools, colleges, cafes, work places… from people fighting the cold in minus temperatures to people sweating it out in the gym… from conference meetings to marriage ceremonies… from a 92 years old grandmother to a 2 years old kid… from even our Jawaans in the armed forces. It’s not just a line anymore, you all have turned it into an emotion… an emotion so strong and special, I’m going to cherish for life. Thank You everyone. इस प्यार और सम्मान के लिए तहे दिल से शुक्रिया। ❤️?
