Post marriage to cricketer Virat Kohli Anushka Sharma has started prepping for her next SUI DHAAGA as she attended workshops to learn the craft of embroidery.
Anushka Sharma is no stranger to taking up roles that are challenging and exciting at the same time. In SUI DHAAGA, Anushka will be seen transforming herself again to play the role of a self-reliant embroiderer and the actress has already started workshops to perfect her character before she starts filming. Anushka is paired with Varun Dhawan for the first time and this is exciting enough to make us look forward to the film’s release.
Talking about the workshops producer Maneesh Sharma shared, “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, movie-goers 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.”
“I was surprised how quickly Anushka picked up the craft of embroidery. When I saw stuff she has embroided, I thought someone has helped her. Later I found out that her preparation is not just limited to the workshop space, she is taking material home to get better at the craft. The finishing touches is the thing that gives away that you are not trained at the craft but she realised that much before I could bring it up. It feels great to see actors taking interest in things beyond what the film requires”,says director Sharat Katariya.
The actress herself shared a picture of trying her hand at embroidery:
SUI DHAAGA is a film inspired from the visionary nation-building thought - Make in India. The film also reunites the National Film Award winning team of producer Maneesh Sharma and director Sharat Katariya who gave us DUM LAGA KE HAISHA. SUI DHAAGA - MADE IN INDIA is set to hit the silver screens on September 28 this year.
