Watch: How Anushka Sharma learnt the art of embroidery for ‘Sui Dhaaga’
Anushka Sharma, who plays an embroiderer from heartland India in YRF’s upcoming entertainer ‘Sui Dhaaga – Made in India’, has left no stones unturned to perfect her role on screen.
“I’m always up for a challenge, up for a new journey and experience through my films. I knew I had to look the part and also come across extremely confident with the art of sui dhaaga,” said Anushka
She added, “I knew I had to give in considerable time and effort to look like an authentic embroiderer and I was really excited to learn this skill. I really dived into the prep sessions and I enjoyed them thoroughly.”
Producer Maneesh Sharma was all praises for Anushka. He said, “Anushka becomes the character she plays on screen. That’s her unique and rare talent. She knew the art of sui dhaaga because she did a bit of it at her school. She practised it thoroughly and she was a pro at it.”
“Anushka is a perfectionist and she ensured that she prepped for about 2 months before she gave the first shot of her embroidering and it was perfect. She used to do embroidering even on the sets so that she keeps practising the skill. I think after a point, she just did it because she was having fun on the sets,” added Maneesh.
After sharing the video of Varun mastering the tailoring skills, YRF shared the video of Anushka practicing embroidery. Watch it below:

Anushka’s character in the film becomes self-reliant by using her talent of embroidering and makes a name for herself in her community along with her husband, Mauji, (played by Varun Dhawan) who is a tailor. Together from being unemployed, they become success stories by putting their skills to good use.
‘Sui Dhaaga’ brings together National Award winning producer-director combo of Maneesh Sharma and Sharat Katariya after their blockbuster ‘Dum Laga Ke Haisha’. ‘Sui Dhaaga’ is a special salute to the inherent entrepreneurial spirit that the youth of India and our local artisans have.
‘Sui Dhaaga – Made in India’ is set to release on September 28 this year, just before Gandhi Jayanti.
