I wasn't gonna do URI, father said it'll be a mistake if I didn't do it : Vicky Kaushal

In a conversation with Rajeev Masand, a film critic on Tuesday, November 10 at Jagran Film Festival, the actor said he didn’t connect with the script at all when he read it for the first time.

He said “Actually I had almost said no to Uri. I was shooting for Raazi when I got a call from Ronnie Screwvala’s team. I was told they’re sending me an action film script and that I’m the first actor they’re approaching, and plan to make the film now. We were shooting an emotional scene in Raazi, so it was a heavy day. I went back home and I saw the script. Then I wasn’t (thinking like) an actor, I wanted to know what had happened because we had seen it in the news,

There was so much technical information involved, the army, the language. For 14 hours that day I was playing a Pakistani major and then suddenly this was India versus Pakistan and I had to be on the Indian side. There was something I couldn’t connect to,” he added.

He said it was his father who read the script and asked him what he thought about it. to which he replied “I said I couldn’t enter the zone. It took me a long time, as usual, I finish a script in two hours but I took four-and-a-half hours for this one.

His father told him, ‘If you miss doing this film, it’ll be the stupidest decision of your life,” he added.
