Yash Raj Films has shared a picture of Varun and Anushka Sharma from the sets of their upcoming film Sui Dhaga, in which he can be seen pedalling a bicycle with her riding pillion. Highlighting the reality and struggle in India, Varun and Anushka play the characters Mauji and Mamta, bringing to screen the simplicity and realness of living in India. "#SuiDhaaga", the caption read.
A source close to the affair revealed, "People in the heartland use bicycles to commute".
To top it off, Varun had recently injured himself while shooting for a scene that needed him to tumble down a flight of stairs. "By the end of the day, both were quite exhausted". While the filmmakers recommended using a body double for the shot, the actor insisted on performing the scene himself.
Sui Dhaaga is being directed by Sharat Katariya and will see Varun and Anushka collaborating for a film for the first time.
Speaking about the choice of his heroine, Maneesh had said, "We wanted someone who could effortlessly transform herself into a character who is intelligent, strong and expressive even in her silence".
Still from Varun Dhawan-Anushka Sharma starrer Sui Dhaaga.
From the characters' looks to the costumes and elements, everything is relatable in the movie and hence they want to add this lengthy cycle sequence.
The movie is going to be released on 28 September 2018, and has already been hyped to the fans of the actors and general audiences, who would like to see a very different facet of the two actors. While Varun plays the role of a tailor, Anushka plays an embroiderer in the film.
