Vicky Kaushal and Yami Gautam starrer 'Uri: The Surgical Strike', fell prey to blatant piracy by the website TamilRockers.com and got leaked.

The makers of the film took some unique and strict measures to ensure that the film doesn't get leaked online, but despite the attempts to curb piracy, 'Uri-The Surgical Strike' has been leaked on the internet by Tamilrockers.

Earlier also, Tamilrockers had illegally distributed copies of many films including 'The Accidental Prime Minister' and '2.0'.

The makers of the film came up with a unique strategy – by trolling those who tried to download the pirated version of the movie. The makers of 'Uri' had released a version of the film online for download. And those who fell into the nest ended up downloading a 3.8 GB movie only to realize that it was a not the film but a version exclusively curated for the likes of them.

The scene opens with Vicky and Yami discussing the surgical strike. Soon, the actors face the camera and talk to the viewers directly. "Jab hamari Army unki territory me ghuskar aatankvaadio ko maar sakti hai, to kya hum aapke torrent me nahi ghus sakte?" Yami Gautam says in the video.

Vicky then adds: "Picture dekhiye garv se. Theatre me jaakar." The clip ends with a message for the viewers not to watch pirated versions.

The Surgical Strike is doing well at the box office. The military drama directed by Aditya Dhar has earned Rs 70.94 crore till now.
