Vicky Kaushal's hardcore training with army men for URI
Vicky Kaushal who has proved his worth with his previous films, goes into army mode with URI and the audience is impressed by such an avatar of him, As we know Vicky Kaushal will be playing the role of a patriotic soldier who becomes that part of the surgical strike.
Talking about how he trained for the film Vicky said, “To play a para SF commando, I needed a lot of focus and persistence. Every day, I had to motivate myself. I had to gain 15 kilos for the role and since I don’t put on weight too easily, I was pretty tensed.”
As it has been seen in the trailer, in which Vicky trains his chosen team for the operation, and delivers a rousing speech. “Indian Army didn’t start this war, but we will bloody hell finish it,” he yells.
Vicky also shared, “The kind of training that we went through for the film was tough. The warm-up session included 25 rounds of sprinting around the ground, as well as, endurance and stamina training as part of a group. When the SF soldiers perform a mission, they don’t talk. They are cats in shadows. They will jump off a building and you wouldn’t hear a thing, they are that swift, agile and strong. We were trained by the military guys for three hours every day. We were not allowed to have a sip of water unless the military professional told us to. During one of the sessions, four actors took a break and had water. Those four were asked to step out and the rest of the 16, who didn’t drink water were asked to do 200 push-ups and 200 burpees in five minutes, without taking a break. When we were doing the push-ups and burpees, the four who had broken the rule, felt very guilty. They apologised to us profusely and from the next day, everybody took care of each other. We all ensured that no one broke the rule as it would affect the ones who didn’t. The military training helped us become strong both physically and mentally.”
