Vicky Kaushal’s Uri is a certified box office hit as it is well into its third week and managing to fend off competition posed by new releases such as Why Cheat India and Fraud Saiyaan. The film, based on 2016 surgical strikes, has earned Rs 115.87 crore till Monday and is going strong in the international market as well.
According to trade aggregator Box Office India, Uri had a “miracle second Monday” as it earned Rs 7.7 crore. The website said this means there has been only a 20% dip from Uri’s first Friday till now. This has brought Uri’s domestic box office collection to an estimated Rs 115.87 crore.

Here are the box office records Vicky Kaushal’s Uri has broken till now…
Uri breaks Baahubali, Dangal record
Uri - The Surgical Strike has created history as its second weekend box office collection was higher than the first weekend. The film had collected Rs 35.92 crore in its first weekend and the second weekend is Rs 37.75 crore. This is unprecedented and has never happened for a film that opened with Rs 5 crore collection. This is something biggest hits ever such as Baahubali and Dangal couldn’t achieve.
Uri breaks Stree, Raazi, Badhaai Ho records
Taran mentioned how Uri crossed the Rs 100 crore benchmark faster than films such as Tanu Weds Manu Returns, Stree, Badhaai Ho and Raazi. “Days taken to reach Rs 100 cr by medium-budget films...
#UriTheSurgicalStrike: Day 10
#TWMReturns: Day 11
#Stree: Day 16
#Raazi: Day 17
#BadhaaiHo: Day 17
#SKTKS: Day 25
Vicky Kaushal’s first solo Rs 100 crore film
Uri is the first film starring Vicky kaushal as a solo lead that has entered Rs 100 crore club. Accepting this but crediting Uri as a team effort, Vicky recently told Mid-Day, “A hero cannot make a film hit. Movies are made with the team effort. I credit Aditya [Dhar, director] and Ronnie Screwvala [producer] for their conviction. A film can turn an actor into a star, but a star can’t guarantee a great film on his own.”
Vicky Kaushal’s second highest grosser
With Rs 115 crore in its kitty, Uri will soon cross the lifetime business of Raazi (Rs 123.24 crore) to become Vicky’s second highest grosser of all-time. However, his highest grosser remains Ranbir Kapoor-starrer Sanju.
Yami Gautam’s highest grosser ever
Uri has out-earned Hrithik Roshan-starrer Kaabil (Rs 103.40 crore) to become Yami Gautam’s biggest hit till date. “Very happy with the kind of response that the film has earned and is continuing to have a great run at the box office. I’m very grateful to the team behind the film, everyone has truly worked very hard. Its amazing to have producers like Ronnie who believe in their content and invest in people like us. I’m personally excited to have such a tremendous beginning to 2019 and I am certain to keep the audiences entertained further too,” the actor said in a statement.
Uri is 2019’s first release and first blockbuster
With its place in Rs 100 crore club, Uri is not only the biggest hit of 2019, it is also the first release.
