Anushka Sharma and Varun Dhawan’s upcoming film Sui Dhaaga centres around the government’s campaign - Make in India. In the film, Varun Dhawan plays the role of a tailor called Mauji and the actor went completely de-glam for this role. However, the director of the film, Sharat Katariya, wanted Varun to attend workshops to learn more about tailoring and Anushka shared a video that shows the audience the kind of hard work Varun put into playing the role of Mauji.

Anushka captioned the video, “@varundvn bana Mauji! #SuiDhaagaMadeInIndia.” In the Varun explained how the first thing he learnt was how to thread a needle. It does take a lot of patience to get this right, and Varun also found it hard. He also learnt how to use the manual sewing machines that were used earlier. The actor learnt everything from cutting a piece of cloth to sewing garments. The actor also stitched a blouse, shirts and pants from scratch to understand what it was like to use a sewing machine.

Sui Dhaaga is about Mauji, who is initially an aimless labourer, and his wife Mamta played by Anushka. Mamta inspired Mauji to start a venture of his own and do a respectful job, which is when Mauji picks up his sewing machine. Together, the two of them start a small-scale business that sells handlooms.

The film produced by Yash Raj Films is slated to release on September 28. The trailer of the film had released on August 13 and more than the trailer, fans on Twitter made use of Anushka and Varun’s expression to come up with some great memes.
