New Delhi: Actors Anushka Sharma and Varun Dhawan, who will be seen together in Yash Raj Films’ ‘Sui Dhaaga: Made In India’, were snapped on the sets of the film in Mumbai. The duo, dressed up as their characters – Mamta and Mauji, was shooting for an intense sequence on the streets on late Thursday night while a massive crowd present there enjoyed the shoot.

‘Sui Dhaada’ is reportedly based on ‘Make in India’ campaign launched by the Indian government in 2014, which was aimed at promoting the country’s indigenous textile industries. The details of the project have been kept under wraps making fans eager to know more about this drama.
Earlier, during an interview with news agency, Varun talked about his character in the film saying, “I read a lot of biographies. I’ve read one on Dev Anand. I love reading Suppandi. I used to read that a lot during my childhood. Even the characters I do, like right now I am playing this character of a tailor Mauji in Sui Dhaaga. There is more to him than just being a tailor as he is a peon in a shop as well. Mauji is very inspired by Suppandi.”
The film is set to hit the screens on September 28.
