Vicky Kaushal went through the extensive military training for five months and put on some weight. He trained for five hours a day which includes three to four hours of military training to enhance his stamina. He also received gun training at the naval base in Cuffe Parade in Mumbai. He called it physically the most challenging film for me as he injured his arm while filming an action sequence in it.\
Vicky Kaushal and the supporting casts were trained at Mumbai’s Navy Nagar with Captains and Majors who are teaching them slithering, using arms and ammunitions and other drills used by the armed forces. Most of the filming of Uri was done in Serbia and was wrapped up in Mumbai. The Indo-Pak border, the LOC and other areas resembling military posts and terrorist camps were recreated in Serbia. Yami Gautam was trained mixed martial arts for this movie. She called the process of shooting was “exhausting yet enjoyable.” The film also stars Kirti Kulhari, Paresh Rawal and Mohit Raina.
