Director Aditya Dhar’s 2019 blockbuster Uri has won big at the 66th National Award. The film has earned the Best Director award for Aditya along with Best actor for Vicky Kaushal, Best Audiography and Best Music Director awards.
Elated at receiving the prestigious award Aditya released a statement, which reads:
15 years of failures, rejections and hard work has lead to this moment and it just can’t get better than this. Thank you India, thank you Ministry of Information & Broadcasting and all the Jury members of National Award committee for considering me worthy enough for this prestigious award. This is an honour I am going to cherish for the rest of my life.”
Being conferred with the National Award has been a dream since the time I understood what films meant to me, and films truly mean the world to me. Thanks to my family and friends for their unconditional support over the years. The way my parents and my brother stood by me through all the struggle is what helped me realise my dream so beautifully
Thank you Ronnie Screwvala and my entire team of URI for giving it all and making URI what it is. This film wouldn’t have been possible without the mad obsession of each one of you to create something extraordinary for our audience. But most importantly I am dedicating this award to each and every brave soldier of our country and their families. Thank you for all your sacrifices. You have selflessly dedicated your life to serve us and now it’s our time to dedicate everything we have to serve you.
PS- HOW’S THE JOSH???
