Actor Varun Dhawan who released the trailer of his forthcoming film Sui Dhaaga, earlier today and now says that he always wanted to do an Indian family film that goes to all parts of the country. During the trailer launch of his film, Varun told the media that he initially said no to the role but changed his mind after reading the script. He said that he just knew he had to be “Mauji”- his character in the film.

“When I got the script initially, I didn’t have any dates only. So I came (met makers) to say that I don’t have dates for the film. But when I read the script and Sharat’s writing, I was just so blown away that I was laughing, crying. It took me on a ride. And I always loved family films, I always wanted to do Indian films, the kind of films that reach every part of the country. And when I read the script I knew I could not leave this film. I had to do the film and become Mauji.” said Varun.

The film has been shot in Chandari where the characters reside. When asked about the shooting experience at the location, director-writer Sharat said, “The location adds a touch to the film and I believe it provided a lot of help to the actors to understand their characters and mould into them.”

Sui Dhaaga reminds us so much of Dum Laga Ke Haisha in its early bits. The same sweet tussles with the family, the small town couple struggling to find intimacy and letting in the other on the big dreams they have for themselves.

Produced by Maneesh Sharma and presented by Yash Raj Films, Sui Dhaga starring Anushka Sharma and Varun Dhawan will hit the screens on September 28, 2018.
