The forthcoming real life incident based army action drama, URI – The Surgical Strike, comes with a powerful tagline, This is New India, which will hit back, and this requires an equally powerful new anthem, Challa, which is out and viral.
Actor Vicky Kaushal dropped the first single from the film on his social media profile. He captioned it, “The sound of pride, valour, triumph! The new anthem of new India. #Challa out now…#HowsTheJosh #URITheSurgicalStrike @yamigautam @SirPareshRawal @AdityaDharFilms @RonnieScrewvala @ZeeMusicCompany @shashwatology @vivekhariharan5 @MainHoonRomy @RSVPMovies”
The powerful number is crooned by Romy, Vivek Hariharan and Shashwat Sachdev and it is been written by Kumaar. The song features the entire ensemble with some new visuals from the film.
Apart from the song, actor Vicky Kaushal has headed to Lucknow to pay homage to the martyrs of 2016 Uri attack. The actor Tweeted, “In Lucknow today to pay respects to the martyrs of Uri attack”.
On September 18, 2016, terrorists from Pakistan attacked a military base in Uri in Jammu and Kashmir leaving 19 Indian soldiers dead. Eleven days later, the Indian Army retaliated with a series of surgical strikes on terrorist camps across the border.
The film directed by Aditya Dhar is based on the Uri attack of September 2016. It also features actress Yami Gautam in pivotal role.
