WATCH: How Anushka Sharma got used to wearing a saree after ‘Sui Dhaaga’
Anushka Sharma plays a simple, innocent, sincere yet ambitious embroiderer from heartland India in YRF’s upcoming entertainer ‘Sui Dhaaga – Made In India’. Her character balances the responsibilities of home and work with equal ease as she, along with her husband Mauji (Varun Dhawan) become self-reliant by using her embroidering talent.
Anushka’s look in this much-awaited film has been praised by one and all. She will be seen wearing sarees throughout the film, in which, she’ll be seen doing hectic daily household duties as well as demanding handicraft work.
“You are not used to obviously wearing a saree, unless for events or something. Mamta is someone who wears saree every single day, that is what she wears. I had to be so comfortable doing jhadu is a saree, cooking in a saree, climbing up and down the stairs in a saree and looking really easy while doing it. I had to be at ease,” revealed Anushka.
She added, “No matter what I would be doing, the pallu would stay on my head because I had to be used to it. Normally I don’t laugh like how I’m in Sui Dhaaga but because of the pallu, it used to automatically go on the face. Towards the end I got so used to it that I constantly kept putting pallu in my head, and my body language changed because of the pallu; it helped me so much to play this character.”
A film about finding love and respect through self-reliance, Varun is paired opposite Anushka in ‘Sui Dhaaga – Made In India’. Both champion actors, Varun and Anushka have been paired for the first time and are definitely one of the most-awaited on-screen jodis of 2018. The film is set to release on September 28 this year, just before Gandhi Jayanti.
