In the major airstrike at today at around 3.30 am, 12 Mirage 2000 fighter jets of IAF destroyed terror camps of Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) in Balakot. The strike came 12 days after the deadly terror attack in Pulwama. Right from the moment the news broke out; netizens have set Twitter on fire with memes celebrating the IAF.
The netizens to hail the IAF turned to the famous catchphrase ‘How’s The Josh?’ from the Bollywood super hit film Uri The Surgical Strike based on surgical strike conducted by India against militant launch pads across the Line of Control in Pakistani-administered Kashmir in 2016. Even PM Modi couldn't resist using this line from the movie Uri.
As is known, Uri The Surgical Strike is one of the biggest hits with 235 Cr Nett and the film is still leaking decent numbers in its eighth week. Apparently, the same team would make sequel to Surgical Strike, based on India’s airstrike on JeM camp. We can expect double the josh from the team!
Vicky Kaushal, Yami Gautam, Paresh Rawal, Mohit Raina and Kirti Kulhari played lead roles in Uri The Surgical Strike directed by Aditya Dhar and produced by Ronnie Screwvala.
