Just like how Ranbir Kapoor sought inspiration from Tintin for his musical adventure, Jagga Jasoos, Varun Dhawan has found his inspiration for his upcoming film, Sui Dhaaga, from a comic character only. At a recent event, when asked about the same, this is what the actor had to say, “I read a lot of biographies… I’ve read one on Dev Anand. I love reading ‘Suppandi’. I used to read that a lot during my childhood. Even the characters I do, like right now I am playing this character of a tailor Mauji in ‘Sui Dhaaga’…there is more to him than just being a tailor as he is a peon in a shop as well. Mauji is very inspired by Suppandi.”
It seems stories based in the heartland have really fascinated our filmmakers. After Dum Laga Ke Haisha, Sharat Katariya is all set to give us the flavor of the Indian soil again, and apparently, the film is based on Mahatma Gandhi’s Swadeshi movement. Also starring Anushka Sharma, the film is all set to release on the 28th of September, 2018.
