Among the most promising projects of Yash Raj Films, we can certainly place Sui Dhaaga - Made In India in second place. Of course, the film does not even touch the breadth of a Thugs Of Hindostan but that is not the question! It is a social film that promises to be very rural about Indian craftsmen. It brings together Varun Dhawan and Anushka Sharma on screen for the first time.
While unveiling the trailer of her horror film Pari in two days, Anushka Sharma is still busy on the set of Sui Dhaaga. For her part, although she was not particularly lucky at the box office, Anushka Sharma remains one of the biggest female stars or even the biggest of her generation. Her last film for YRF was Sultan that stays for the moment the biggest historical success of the production house.
Produced by Yash Raj Films, this film cast alongside Varun Dhawan. And this first meeting on the screen for the duo will be out of glam as the first two official photos prove that have just been published. We discover in particular a Varun with a mustache and an Anushka looking very far from a diva! The look of the characters suggests that the film could take place between the 80s and 90s. We still do not know a lot about Sui Dhaaga except that it will be a social film focused on textile production.
Varun Dhawan should play the role of Mauji, a couturier, and Anushka that of Mamta, an embroiderer. Sui Dhaaga - Made in India is directed by Sharat Katariya, co-writer of Titli and director of Dum Laga Ke Haisha. Given the style of the filmmaker, one can expect without any doubt an atypical project, leaving the traditional trade paths. A film that, like this photo, will focus on rural India, proletarian, and not on the sparkling colors of commercial Bollywood. This is great news!
The production company took advantage of October 2 to broadcast a video. On Gandhi Jayanti in India, Yash Raj Films could not find a better day to honor the memory of one who is considered the father of the nation. The announcement video allows us to get an idea of the possible chemistry between Anushka and Varun.
The duo had already given a joint interview on independent cinema during the releases of NH10 and Badlapur, creating a great enthusiasm among fans. With this sober and aesthetically pleasing video, Yash Raj Films seems to promise us a film that will stand out from its usual colorful productions. It will especially have a social message to carry.
Sui Dhaaga looks really promising and expectations are still a little higher now based on this project. On a story by the talented Maneesh Sharma (FAN, Shuddh Desi Romance), the film will be directed by Sharat Katariya to whom we owe the direction of Dum Laga Ke Haisha but also the story of the brilliant Titli. After Shahrukh Khan's Diwali, Salman Khan's Eid, Christmas for Aamir Khan, or Independence Day for Akshay Kumar, would Varun Dhawan be getting his holiday period?
Waiting to find out, we will also find the actor next year in October by Shoojit Sircar (Piku). For her part, Anushka Sharma is preparing a very big year with an appearance in the biopic of Sanjay Dutt. There is a purely independent horror film that she produces entitled Pari, Sui Dhaaga, and the next Aanand. L Rai with Shahrukh Khan.
