Anushka Sharma practices sewing skills for upcoming film


Anushka Sharma is currently gearing up for two mega projects. The first being the Shah Rukh Khan starrer Zero, while the second is Sui Dhaaga with Varun Dhawan.

In Sui Dhaaga, Anushka will be seen essaying a self-reliant embroiderer and she has already started workshops to perfect her character before she starts filming.

On Monday, Anushka posted an image of herself practicing her sewing skills with the caption: “Katran mein buni khaani, Paband lagaake hai sunaniSui Dhaaga.” (Woven story from clipping mend’s needle thread of thought)

Sui Dhaaga, produced by Maneesh Sharma under the Yash Raj Films banner, also features Varun Dhawan. It is written-directed by Sharat Katariya of  Dum Laga Ke Haisha fame.

Maneesh said in a statement, “We wanted someone who could effortlessly transform herself into a character who is intelligent, strong and expressive even in her silence. Anushka brings in the authenticity and resilient spirit as a performer and a star. Today, moviegoers want to discover and love characters that they connect with. They want to identify themselves with the story and see how convincingly and truthfully actors translate it.”

Katariya said Anushka is even taking material home to get better at the craft. From a picture that surfaced on the internet, Sharma will be seen in a completely different attire, a stark contrast to her usual glamorous persona.

Slated to release on September 28, Sui Dhaaga is a story of pride and self-reliance, rooted in the heart of India.
