With SUI DHAAGA I am proud to take their message to millions of movie lovers in a manner that is entertaining and relevant. I really liked the script Sharat had written and I am happy that I am teaming up with YRF on this movie. Anushka and me are teaming up for the first time so I am sure there will be fireworks.”

While Anushka Sharma added, “I always get excited with unique ideas that have human interest stories. SUI DHAAGA is a story of self-reliance that I believe will connect to the grassroots level with every Indian. And am really looking forward to work with Varun Dhawan and the team of Maneesh Sharma and Sharat Katariya.”
Speaking about the film, Maneesh Sharma said, 'After the love and appreciation DUM LAGA KE HAISHA garnered from the audience, it's very exciting to team up once again with Sharat to tell a heartwarming story of pride and self-reliance. This story finds its roots in the heart of India, and reflects the passion that runs through the veins of every single Indian. SUI DHAAGA is a story that will resonate with all of us, and with Varun and Anushka I think we've found just the right vehicles to tell it.”
Sharat Katariya further adds, 'Finally, we have a story worth telling. It's a great feeling to begin again. There is excitement mixed with nervousness. There is joy of reuniting with old friends and new collaborators. Everyone is even more experienced than before…hoping we'll work again with the same innocence and joy.”
