Bollywood stars Varun Dhawan and Anushka Sharma’s acclaimed film ‘Sui Dhaaga – Made In India’, which was released in 2018 in the country, will be hitting the screens in China on March 31. The film is about finding love and respect through self-reliance. “We are pleased to announce that our beautiful love story on self-empowerment, Sui Dhaaga – Made in India, will have its release in China on March 31, 2023!”
“The film touched the hearts of people when it released in India and given its universal theme of how every human being should be self-reliant to fulfil their dreams, it should resonate in China too! We are hopeful that our film with its strong core values will appeal to audiences in China who have historically connected with stories that celebrate the undying human spirit,” said Nelson D’Souza, Vice President, International Distribution, Yash Raj Films.
Producer Maneesh Sharma added: “As a film-maker, I have always believed that some stories are universal in their appeal and can transcend language and geographies. For me, Sui Dhaaga – Made In India is one such. While it is a love story steeped in Indian roots and values, it is pure heartwarming cinema that got so much love when it released in India and I’m hopeful it will melt the hearts of audiences in China too.”
“Indian youth are dream-chasers and if we look at China, they are also the same. So, I feel our simple, feel-good love story of two aspiring entrepreneurs will connect with people in that country. I’m eager to see the reaction in China. Historically, they have loved uplifting stories about human emotions and rooted for underdogs to win the day. I’m hopeful they will love the theme of how self-reliance can aid people to achieve their goals.”
The film’s plot is inspired by Mahatma Gandhi’s philosophy that Indians should be self-dependent to achieve their goals. While Varun played the role of a tailor, Anushka is an embroiderer in the film who, as husband and wife, team up to fulfill their dreams of becoming entrepreneurs.
‘Sui Dhaaga – Made In India’ saw the National Award-winning dream-team of director Sharat Kataria and producer Maneesh Sharma, of ‘Dum Laga Ke Haisha’ fame.
