Varun Dhawan and Anushka Sharma starrer Sui Dhaaga is the story of married couple Mauji and Mamta who reclaim the family sowing business. Recently, in a sit down chat with film critic Anupama Chopra on IMDb The Insider’s Watchlist, Dhawan revealed that actor Hrithik Roshan has inspired him and many actors in the Indian film industry. On the show, Varun said, "The first time I saw Hrithik Roshan on screen, I was deeply affected. I am swayed away with his performance in intense scenes. Though, Shah Rukh Khan is the best dramatic actor in the country and you see a lot of new actors imitate him but Hrithik has his own voice, and anybody who says that his performance doesn’t leave an impact on them, they are lying."
Anushka Sharma said she was highly inspired by Kangana Ranaut in the movie Queen.
