One of the main reasons why the trailer of Sui Dhaaga resonated with the Indian audience was its theme of patriotism. It is about a struggle of a man who is proud to use the word Made In India in his products! Appreciating the hard work put in by hundreds of weavers and tailors in the country, the film celebrates the talents and artistic abilities of them and the embroiderers. And keeping that as the theme, the lead actors of the film, Anushka Sharma and Varun Dhawan wish Independence Day to their fans.
After the release of the trailer, the onscreen couple Varun Dhawan and Anushka Sharma are busy with the promotions. Considering that the underlining genre of patriotism being an integral part of Sui Dhaaga, the two of them decided to do something special for Independence Day. The two of them released a video of the Indian National Flag and the special fact about this flag is that every colour in it has been weaved in different art forms.
Explaining the same in the said video, Varun posted with a caption saying, “Wishing you all a very happy Independence Day. Will always value this day and never forget the sacrifices of our freedom fighters. #jaihind???????? #madebyindia #madeinindia.”
Producer Maneesh Sharma says, “Our film is a celebration of Indian craftsmanship that is winning hearts and accolades across the globe and this is our salute to our motherland. Craftsmen from different parts of the country have worked together to make this special flag. We have combined Chikankari thread work from Lucknow, Kashida style from Kashmir and Phulkari needlework from Punjab to create this flag. Chikankari work salutes the saffron, Kashida is present on the white and Phulkari work makes the green of our national flag.”
Speaking on this unique celebration, Anushka said, “When I was told that our artists have worked tirelessly day in and day out to make our national flag that gives a tribute to the brilliant history and diverse culture of craftsmanship of our country, I was keen to see the outcome. The artists have really made a truly special flag that captures the diversity and unity of our country and it has made my Independence Day even more special.”
Varun added, “As an Indian, I feel proud to hold my national flag every time I get the opportunity to do so and Sui Dhaaga has made that experience even more special as we are celebrating our Independence Day by saluting the brilliant homegrown arts and crafts industry. Our film’s spirit of Make In India resonates with the pride and honour of Independence Day and our handmade flag is a humble salute to our spirit of freedom.”
Sui Dhaaga, directed by Sharat Katariya, is slated to release on September 28. The release date was locked right before October 2 which is celebrated as Gandhi Jayanti. It is produced by Maneesh Sharma under the Yash Raj Films’ banner.
