The said words were repeatedly spoken by Vicky Kaushal’s character Major Vihaan Singh Shergill to the Indian Army soldiers under his command in Uri: The Surgical Strike, usually in order to keep up the solider courage before a battle.
Actor Vicky Kaushal has thanked his fans for making the catchphrase “How’s the Josh?” from his film Uri: The Surgical Strike such a sensation. He said words were repeatedly spoken by Kaushal’s character Major Vihaan Singh Shergill to the Indian Army soldiers under his command, usually in order to keep up solider courage before a battle.
Vicky Kaushal recently posted a photo of himself on his Instagram account handle wearing a sweatshirt that read ‘How’s the Josh?’
He captioned the photo, “It’s not just a line anymore… I get so many “How’s the Josh?!” videos from you all everyday, each one made with so much love and passion, from schools, colleges, cafes, work places and cricket field… from people fighting the cold in minus temperatures to people sweating it out in the gym… from conference meetings to marriage ceremonies… from a 92 years old grandmother to a 2 years old kid… from even our Jawaans in the armed forces.”
Vicky Kaushal added, “It’s not just a line anymore, you all have turned it into an emotion… an emotion so strong and special, I’m going to cherish for life. Thank You everyone. इस प्यार और सम्मान के लिए तहे दिल से शुक्रिया। ❤️🙏.”
In the final few minutes of Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s Parinda, Nana Patekar sneaks in Anil Kapoor and Madhuri Dixit’s bedroom and indiscriminately opens fire.
In retaliation, Kapoor’s furious older brother Jackie Shroff storms inside Nana’s house and burns him alive.
The same ‘Ghar Mein Ghus Ke Marega’ sentiment of retribution drives Uri-The Surgical Strike, except the backdrop is military not mafia.
Director Aditya Dhar focuses on the events of September 2016 wherein Bihar regiments 19 jawans lost their lives in a brazen terror attack on the Indian military town of Uri in Jammu and Kashmir in morning, prompting the Indian government to conduct a surgical strike on terrorist launchpads in Pakistan occupied Kashmir.
To make its tactical premise more personal (read filmi), Dhar weaves the operation around an undaunted, indestructible para commando Vihaan Singh Shergill (Vicky Kaushal).
Uri, based on retaliatory strikes by the Indian Armed Forces on terror launch pads across the LOC after a terrorist attack on an Indian Army base, has been written and directed by Aditya Dhar. It also stars Yami Gautam, Paresh Rawal, Mohit Raina, Kirti Kulhari, Rajit Kapur among others.
