Varun Dhawan’s Mauji needed Anushka Sharma’s Mamta to inspire him in Sui Dhaaga.

Anushka Sharma and Varun Dhawan has brought us the most adorable little story of a couple looking to realise their dreams together with Sui Dhaaga-Made In India. The actor shared the film’s trailer on Monday and it has been met with great applause and praise.

In Sui Dhaaga, Varun plays Mauji, a tailor from Chanderi, Madhya Pradesh, while Anushka plays his wife and embroidery expert, Mamta. The film is about finding love and respect through self-reliance. Its plot is inspired by Mahatma Gandhi’s philosophy and takes a leaf out of the Make In India campaign.

The trailer shows Mauji as a salesman at a shop that sells sewing machines. He is unable to find work as a tailor and therefore has to suffer the whims of his master and employer. Mamta hates watching him get humiliated all the time and wants him to start working on his own. Together, they fight for respect and starting a business that they can call their own.

Sui Dhaaga reminds us so much of Dum Laga Ke Haisha in its early bits. The same sweet tussles with the family, the small town couple struggling to find intimacy and letting in the other on the big dreams they have for themselves. The movie seems full of life and hopefulness that we were expecting from it. While Varun takes the centrestage in the movie, Anushka’s confident, caring and intelligent wife makes us root for her.

In a recent interview to PTI, Varun said, “I approach even my fictional characters as biopic characters. I am playing a tailor in Sui Dhaga. It’s not based on a particular person but it’s based on my observations of common people and how they go to work.”

Producer Maneesh Sharma says actors Varun and Anushka relished the chance to go out of the comfort zone for their upcoming film. “Varun and Anushka relished the chance to go out of the comfort zone of being portrayed as glamorous stars. Mauji and Mamta are salt of the earth characters and these characters gave our duo the chance to really push themselves as actors,” Sharma said.

Anushka Sharma had earlier shared a video on Instagram that featured her and Varun, and reminded viewers that the trailer will be launched on August 13. Anushka captioned the video: “Varun Dhawan ke sawaalon ka jawab hai....13th August ko! Just 2 days to go for Sui Dhaaga Made In India Trailer.”

While sharing the Sui Dhaaga poster, they had written, “’Dhaage Dhaage pe likha hai silne wale ka naam, aaiye ab humari kahaani sunney,’ Mamta aur Mauji badey mauj se pesh karte hain Sui Dhaaga ka pehla poster, ab trailer k liye zyada waqt nahi bacha.”

The film will also bring together National Award-winning producer-director duo of Sharma and director Sharat Katariya, the team that won hearts with their first collaboration Dum Laga Ke Haisha.

The film will release on September 28.
