The trailer for Varun Dhawan and Anushka Sharma starrer "Sui Dhaaga: Made in India" is out. The story is inspired by ‘Make in India’ campaign based on Mahatma Gandhi’s ideology.
Varun is playing the role of Mauji, a tailor from Chanderi, Madhya Pradesh, while Anushka plays his wife and embroidery expert, Mamta. The movie shows the struggle of both the artisians for respect through self-reliance. Mauji who is happy doing scanty work for living is inspired by his wife Mamta to start his own business and Mauji picks his sewing machine to start journey toward self reliance.
In a recent interview to PTI, Varun said, “I approach even my fictional characters as biopic characters. I am playing a tailor in Sui Dhaga. It’s not based on a particular person but it’s based on my observations of common peopleand how they go to work.”
Producer Maneesh Sharma says actors Varun and Anushka relished the chance to go out of the comfort zone for their upcoming film. “Varun and Anushka relished the chance to go out of the comfort zone of being portrayed as glamorous stars. Mauji and Mamta are salt of the earth characters and these characters gave our duo the chance to really push themselves as actors,” Sharma said.
