Uri didn’t confirm but restate the fact all of us already know –that Bollywood has got a lot of potential hidden inside the actors like him.

Naturally, he inspires a lot of lives around him. He has become so successful in such a short span of time, that even personalities like Ranveer Singh and PM Modi are fanboying him.

Yes, Ranveer Singh attended Vicky’s Insta live and left many heart-wrenching comments for the actor. And Mr. Modi took things to another level by quoting dialogue from Uri in public.

Magical, isn’t it?

Don’t we all crave for this kind of success, and more so, after knowing that he comes from as humble a background as many of us?
