Varun Dhawan and Anushka Sharma have left no stone unturned to get in character for their parts in the much-anticipated entertainer Sui Dhaaga – Made in India. To become a self-reliant tailor Mauji and his embroiderer wife Mamta, Anushka and Varun shot in the outskirts of Delhi at a real textile factory to get authentic visuals of how small-scale businesses operate and how textile workers from small towns work in factories. They also shot with the actual workers of the factory to get the body language right and acquire skill sets of operating industrial machines.
Anushka says, “We have tried to keep Sui Dhaaga as authentic to real life as possible. We lived the life of Mauji and Mamta for this film and this journey took us to work in an actual clothing factory in Faridabad. We shot there for 4 days with real workers who tirelessly work day and night to produce outstanding pieces of garments. We learnt how to operate the machines from them which was very helpful.”
Varun adds, “The factory in Faridabad was a perfect location to shoot. The equipment and machinery looked genuine and extremely authentic to be the place where Mauji and Mamta’s first brush with a textile factory could be. To prep for our parts, we both interacted and met with all the real workers on set and exchanged notes. These people were invaluable in getting us more prepared for our characters.”
A film about finding love and respect through self-reliance, Sui Dhaaga – Made in India is a heart-warming story that celebrates the spirit of self-reliance. The National Award-winning dream-team of director Sharat Katariya and producer Maneesh Sharma have come together again for this Yash Raj Films’ entertainer that is set to release on September 28 this year.
