Varun Dhawan and Anushka Sharma are among Bollywood’s most talented actors, and now they have come together for a film that has already created quite a stir in tinsel town.

Anushka and Varun have stepped into a new avatar, transporting us back to a different era for their new movie ‘Sui Dhaaga’. This is the first time the two have collaborated together.

One look at the stills and you can’t help but feel delighted at the refreshing look. It’s been a while since we have seen something like this in Bollywood.

The actors shared the first look of the film and we are totally loving it. You see the pair smiling, blushing and feeling a bit shy, all in one still.

Varun can be seen donning a moustache reminding us of actors from the 80’s and Anushka is seen wearing her shinning smile with a plain looking salwaar kameez.

Varun and Anushka are all set to play Mauji and Mamta in ‘Sui Dhaaga’, which is being made under the Yash Raj Banner.

Wondering what’s the highlight of their character that makes you instantly like them? It’s their simplicity. They are like any other small town couple that most of the middle class Indians can easily relate to.

But those in the know apparently say it is a publicity gimmick for their new ad for ethnic wear. The commercial has them exchanging vows.

It seems to have spilled on to real life. Anushka is busy with her production, Pari. She also stars in Aanand L Rai’s film, Sanjay Dutt’s biopic and Yash Raj’s production, Sui Dhaaga, which has Varun Dhawan as her co-star. Doesn’t look like Anushka can go on a break. She might just squeeze in a holiday with Virat. With no denial or confirmation, speculations continue.

Varun Dhawan who was known for his commercial and masala films is set to star in ‘Sui Dhaaga’ a social caper based on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘Make In India’ campaign. The film also stars Anushka Sharma and is slated to go on floors by January 2018. According to a report in DNA, the details of Varun Dhawan’s character are revealed. Varun’s character is unlike anything he has essayed before. Says the source, “Varun plays a labourer, a hired help in the film. His look in the film will be in-sync with his character. The film hopes to raise awareness about indigenous cottage industries here in India and also talks about the dignity of labour.”

Varun was fascinated by the manner in which director Sharat Katariya recited the story. “Sharat is so passionate about the subject, his narration impressed Varun enough to say yes to the project,” says an insider. Sharat, who has earlier directed Dum Laga Ke Haisha, is known for his rustic, earthy touch and Sui Dhaaga will be no different.

This will be the first time that Varun Dhawan and Anushka Sharma will be paired opposite each other.
