The Uttar Pradesh government on Tuesday decided to give state GST exemption to Bollywood blockbuster ‘Uri: The Surgical Strike’. The decision was taken at the cabinet meeting held in Allahabad, chief minister Yogi Adityanath, who presided over the meeting, told reporters.

“This is a movie on the surgical strikes, the cabinet has decided to exempt it from state GST. This film is about the country’s valour and will instil a feeling of nationalism and patriotism... This will help the youth and all citizens of the country to see it,” Adityanath said.

‘Uri: The Surgical Strike’, written and directed by Aditya Dhar, is based on the Indian Army’s surgical strikes on terror launch pads in Pakistan in 2016 as a retaliation for the Uri attack that claimed lives of 17 Army personnel.

The film features Vicky Kaushal, Paresh Rawal, Mohit Raina and Yami Gautam in lead roles.
