Aditya revealed his interest in the Army by making movie URI: The Surgical Strike. Earlier, he was working on a movie titled Raat Baaki in which he was supposed to cast a Pakistani actor Fawad Khan with Katrina Kaif. But it was shelved due to the Uri attacks because the militants breathed fire in an Indian Army base in Kashmir. Pakistani artists were outlawed to work in India. Besides basking in these announcements, Dhar chose to concentrate on the current scenario and began his research on how the army pulled this act off. 

His inclination towards army since childhood forced him to fulfil his aspirations. He, as a Kashmiri Pandit, is also the pigeon of terrorism. When he got to know about the strikes, he eventually executed the entire Surgical Strike which took place on 29th September. This turned out to be the best surreptitious military exercises ever administered by India. 

He mined the information from various journalist friends, newspaper articles, retired army officers and other public domains. He revealed that some information about the operational parts are authentic but he could not do justice with each and every character due to the time constraint.
