The 30-year old Bollywood actor suffered the injury while shooting an action sequence last week. The actor, despite his injury, continued to shoot for the film followed by a short break where he went back to Mumbai for a few days. An ANI report suggested that the Sanju actor suffered the injury due to muscle inflammation and overexertion. He is currently going through physiotherapy sessions. The Raazi actor, however, has resumed shooting. The team has made proper arrangements on the sets of Uri and planned schedules to ensure that Vicky Kaushal's injury is not aggravated further. The Sanju actor has been going through some serious training sessions to pull off stunts in the movie. Uri is based on the surgical strikes conducted by Indian army in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir followed by attacks in Jammu and Kashmir town Uri on the 29th of September, 2016.

In order to treat muscle inflammation caused due to exertion, here's what we recommend:
