Bollywood actors Varun Dhawan and Anushka Sharma have stepped away from their usual glamorous attire for their upcoming film Sui Dhaaga — Made in India.
The Yash Raj Films’ project will see Dhawan and Sharma pair up for the first time on-screen as a simple, married couple who try to manoeuvre their way through their relationship and life and set up a small tailoring business.
“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,” said producer Maneesh Sharma in a statement.
“As performers, there’s a certain yin and yang to their approach to the craft and that reflects in their amazing chemistry on screen,” he added.
The film will also bring together National Award-winning producer-director duo of Sharma and Sharat Katariya, the team that won hearts with their first collaboration Dum Laga Ke Haisha.
“More than getting a fresh jodi [pair], the excitement was to get the right actors who will complement each other. And luckily, both of them agreed to do the film and they have done a remarkable job which everyone will get to see on September 28,” said Katariya.
The trailer of the film dropped Monday and appears to be a heartwarming rags-to-riches story.
Sui Dhaaga – Made in India is scheduled to release on September 28.
