The first look of the two main actors from the upcoming film ‘Sui Dhaaga’ was revealed late on Monday. This Yash Raj Films’ production features Anushka Sharma and Varun Dhawan, who have been paired for the first time. What really is striking us is the common folk look of them.
Anushka Sharma will be seen playing the role named as ‘Mamta’. In a first look picture, Anushka sports a purple and white sari, a mustard sweater, a bindi, and sindoor. Interestingly, the actress can be witnessed wearing ‘angoothe wale juraab’ (a customized sock that is worn with a slipper). The first look of the characters gave us the glimpse about the simple background and it will be far from stars’ glamorous real life. Varun, who plays Mauji in the film, also carries the purely common man look with ease. Produced by Maneesh Sharma under the Yash Raj Films banner, ‘Sui Dhaaga’ has been written by Dum Laga Ke Haisha director Sharat Katariya, who is also directing the film. ‘Sui Dhaaga’ will release on September 28.
While commenting on 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. Anushka brings in the authenticity and resilient spirit as a performer and a star. Today, moviegoers want to discover and love characters that they connect with. They want to identify themselves with the story and see how convincingly and truthfully actors translate it.” Both the lead actors have been preparing hard for their roles. The production house revealed in past that both the actors are required to know the skills of tailoring and stitching. While Anushka was seen with needles and thread, Varun was seen learning to stick with a sewing machine.
It has been hardly five years since Varun Dhawan entered into the film industry and the actor is already giving tough competition to many his senior-junior actors. The 30-year-old actor has added another feather to his cap as he has become one of the Bollywood celebrities to get a wax statue at the Madame Tussauds. He’ll be the fourth Indian to join Madame Tussauds Hong Kong after Amitabh Bachchan, Mahatma Gandhi, and Narendra Modi.
“Huge honour. Can’t wait to come there and stare down my wax figure. Thank you,” the actor tweeted on Monday. Dhawan has starred in many hit films like ABCD 2, Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania, Badrinath Ki Dulhania, Badlapur and recently in Judwaa 2. On Madame Tussauds’ official website, the 30-year-old actor said, “It was a great experience to work with Madame Tussauds. I am so excited to get my wax figure in Hong Kong.” The special sculpting team of Madame Tussauds traveled especially to Mumbai to meet the actor and conduct in-depth sitting process. More than 200 measurements were taken in total. The hair and eye colour of the actor were also matched by the team. The actor has worked closely with the team and kept on sharing ideas on the figure’s pose.
“Varun Dhawan is one of the most requested figures and we are delighted to be partnering with this Bollywood great actor. Hong Kong is a multicultural metropolis which makes us a unique brand. Visitors can meet both Hollywood, Asian and also Bollywood stars here at Madame Tussauds Hong Kong. The worldwide popularity of Bollywood films makes people in Hong Kong increasingly embrace Bollywood culture. Besides, India is the fourth largest ethnic group in Hong Kong. As the first youngest Indian Bollywood actor to be waxed, we are confident that Varun’s figure will bring visitors an all-new experience,” said the General Manager of Madame Tussauds (Hong Kong) Jenny You.
