‘Sui Dhaaga’: Chanderi artisans amaze Anushka Sharma

‘Sui Dhaaga’: Chanderi artisans amaze Anushka Sharma

New Delhi, Sep 12 (UNI) Anushka Sharma plays an ambitious embroiderer from heartland India in YRF's ‘Sui Dhaaga – Made in India’.

Anushka’s character in the film becomes self-reliant by using her talent of embroidering and makes a name for herself in her community along with her husband, Mauji, who is a tailor.

Together from being unemployed, they become success stories by putting their skills to good use.

While prepping for her role as Mamta in the film, Anushka was deeply moved with the skills, dreams and aspirations of the weavers and artisans from rural India.

“Anushka was shooting in Chanderi for Sui Dhaaga and one day she requested the team to set up a meeting with the local weavers. Chanderi weavers are known the world over and their skill is admired and raved. Anushka met up with some of the weavers and heard their life stories which were truly inspirational,” says a source who was present on the sets.

“Anushka expressed her fascination for Chanderi sarees and requested them to bring their collection. She spent a couple of hours with them looking through their designs and to their huge surprise, she bought around 35 Chanderi sarees from them! She shopped for her family, took some for gifting. She also bought a lot for herself,” the source said.

“In her own way, Anushka would be spreading the life stories of these talented weavers with her immediate family and friends. She has also taken down all their phone numbers for future,” the source added.



‘Sui Dhaaga’ brings together National Award winning producer-director combo of Maneesh Sharma and Sharat Katariya after their blockbuster ‘Dum Laga Ke Haisha’.

The film is a special salute to the inherent entrepreneurial spirit that the youth of India and our local artisans have.

A film about finding love and respect through self-reliance, Varun Dhawan is paired opposite Anushka Sharma who plays an embroiderer in the film.

Both champion actors, Varun and Anushka have been paired for the first time and are definitely the most-awaited on-screen jodis of 2018.

The movie is set to release on September 28.
