Playing an intelligence officer demands certain degree of discipline: Yami Gautam

The actor will be seen playing an intelligence officer in the upcoming film, Uri 

Published: 19th May 2018

 Actress Yami Gautam, who is currently preparing for her upcoming film Uri, says playing an intelligence officer commands a certain degree of discipline.

"The prep work for Uri has just begun. Playing an intelligence officer on screen commands a certain degree of discipline and needs a body mannerism which is tough and MMA training will serve exactly that," says Yami Gautam. 

The film, directed by Aditya Dhar, is based on the Uri attacks of September 2016. Yami plays an intelligence officer alongside actor Vicky Kaushal in the film. 

"In terms of the action training, we are shortlisting best options and MMA is a crucial part of the role and that's why intense training for that will be what time would be invested in. The MMA is more to suit the body language which the script demands," she adds. 

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 surgical strike, heightening India-Pakistan tensions.

Vicky will undergo some para-military training for a month to bulk up some kilos before starting the shoot.
