Bollywood actors Varun Dhawan and Anushka Sharma, who will team up for upcoming film Sui Dhaaga - Made In India, have made a small video tribute to Mahatma Gandhi on his 148th birth anniversary and shared it on social media platforms on Gandhi Jayanti.
Saluting the spirit of simplicity and self-reliance, Varun and Anushka say in the video, “Jo bana lauh se, lahu se, aag se, desh ke liye bana, desh se bana. Satya ka tha aagrah, nayi thi kalpana. Aatma nirbharta ke charkhe se kiya paradheenta ka khatma. Naam tha Mohandas, par kehte hain jise Mahatma. Saade kapde pe iraade bune aisa diya hume sui dhaaga. Asli made in India baapu ko Sui Dhaaga ka salaam. Aur har us karigar ko salam jiske dum se hai, Made In India.”
While the film will be written and directed by Sharat Katariya of Dum Laga Ke Haisha (2015) fame, it will be produced by Maneesh Sharma. The movie is set to go on floors in January next year and likely to hit theatres on September 28, 2018.
Talking about the film, Varun had earlier told Hindustan Times, “From Gandhiji (Mahatma Gandhi) to Modiji (Prime Minister Narendra Modi), our country’s leaders have always endorsed the ideology of ‘Made in India’. With our film, I am proud to take their message to millions of people in a relevant manner.” Anushka had liked the “unique ideas that have human interest angle” in the script of the film.
While Varun is riding high on the successful box office run of his recently released Judwaa 2, Anushka was last seen in Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Jab Harry Met Sejal.
