Varun, Anushka in a film on Made in In­dia ide­ol­ogy

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - FRONT PAGE - Prashant Singh prashant.singh@htlive.com

Ac­tors Varun Dhawan and Anushka Sharma are set to work to­gether for a film. And HT City has ex­clu­sively learnt that the project is Aditya Cho­pra’s next pro­duc­tion, Sui Dhaaga — Made in In­dia. While the film will be writ­ten and di­rected by Sharat Katariya of Dum Laga Ke Haisha (DLKH; 2015) fame, it’ll be pro­duced by Ma­neesh Sharma.

Varun and Anushka are kicked about the film’s con­cept as well as about shar­ing screen space. “From Gand­hiji (Ma­hatma Gandhi) to Modiji (Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi), our coun­try’s lead­ers have al­ways en­dorsed the ide­ol­ogy of Made in In­dia. With our film, I’m proud to take their mes­sage to mil­lions of movie-lovers in an en­ter­tain­ing and rel­e­vant man­ner,” says Varun, who “re­ally liked the script”.

Anushka says she al­ways feels drawn to “unique ideas that have hu­man in­ter­est sto­ries”. She adds, “It’s a story of self-reliance that I be­lieve will con­nect with ev­ery In­dian [at the grass­roots level]. I’m re­ally look­ing for­ward to work with Varun and the team of Ma­neesh and Sharat.”

Ma­neesh and Sharat first joined hands on Dum Laga Ke Haisha. Be­sides mul­ti­ple main­stream awards, the film went on to win the Na­tional Award for Best Fea­ture Film in Hindi.

“Af­ter the love and ap­pre­ci­a­tion that DLKH gar­nered from the au­di­ence, it’s very ex­cit­ing to team up once again with Sharat to tell a heart-warm­ing story of pride and self-reliance. This story has its roots in the heart of In­dia, and re­flects the pas­sion that runs through the veins of ev­ery In­dian,” says Ma­neesh.

The film will go on the floors in Jan­uary 2018 and will hit the the­atres on Gandhi Jayanti in the same year.

THE FILM, TI­TLED SUI DHAAGA — MADE IN IN­DIA, IS ADITYA CHO­PRA’S NEXT PRO­DUC­TION. IT WILL GO ON THE FLOORS IN JAN­UARY 2018 AND RE­LEASE ON GANDHI JAYANTI (OC­TO­BER 2, 2018)
