With a collection of 157 crore and counting , not even our Ministers afford to miss the chance!The Surgical Strike seems to have struck the right chord with national political leaders. The josh is still high in the country for Vicky Kaushal starrer ‘Uri The Surgical Strike’. Union Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman watched the film at a theatre in Bengaluru on Sunday.
“What a power-packed movie @AdityaDharFilms and @RonnieScrewvala. Brilliant performances @yamigautam @vickykaushal09 @SirPareshRawal ji, @mohituraina. Recharged also by the energy in the cinema hall! #HighJosh,” Sitharaman tweeted after watching the film. After Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s famous “how’s the josh” stint, Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Sunday teamed up with war veterans to watch the film as well.
The senior Bharatiya Janata Party leader on Sunday took to Twitter to share the news and was all praise for the film’s cast.
In a video shared by the Defence Minister, she can be seen encouraging the audience in the theatre while saying the popular catchphrase “How’s the josh” from the film.
The Defence Minister also tweeted a video of her repeating a famous line from the film, “How’s the josh?”, as the audience screamed “High sir”.
The movie surely created patriotism and energy in Sitharaman along with the audience; the film`s catchphrase ‘How`s the Josh’ has managed to take the internet by storm.
The trend is being followed by everybody from children to Prime Minister Narendra Modi. On Sunday, during the inauguration of third bridge on the Mandovi river in Panaji, Goa, Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar began his speech with the catchphrase.
Parrikar was the defence minister at the time of the surgical
strike conducted by the Army in September 2016.
While Sanju witnessed a drop of 54.24 per cent in the second week, Padmaavat declined by 58.26 per cent. Simmba, on the other hand, fell by 59.14 per cent in the second week. However, the decline in week 2 for Uri is a mere 12.22 per cent.
Uri had set the box office on fire in its first week by raking in Rs 70.94 crore.
