Mumbai, Jan 29: Actress Anushka Sharma, who is busy with Shah Rukh Khan-starrer “Zero”, has begun preparing for her next film “Sui Dhaaga”.
In Sui Dhaaga, Anushka will be seen essaying a self-reliant embroiderer. She has already started workshops to perfect her character before she starts filming.
On Monday, Anushka posted an image of herself practicing her sewing skills with the caption: “Katran mein buni khaani, Paband lagaake hai sunani – ‘Sui Dhaaga'”.

“Sui Dhaaga”, produced by Maneesh Sharma under the Yash Raj Films banner, also features Varun Dhawan. It is written-directed by “Dum Laga Ke Haisha” helmer Sharat Katariya.
Last month, Varun revealed his look and posted a picture of himself working on a sewing machine with an intense look on his face.

Maneesh said in a statement: “We wanted someone who could effortlessly transform herself into a character who is intelligent, strong and expressive even in her silence. Anushka brings in the authenticity and resilient spirit as a performer and a star.
“Today, moviegoers want to discover and love characters that they connect with. They want to identify themselves with the story and see how convincingly and truthfully actors translate it.”
Katariya said Anushka is even taking material home to get better at the craft.
The movie will bring Varun and Anushka together on big screen for the first time.
The flick is based on a social initiative and inspired from ‘Make in India’ initiative and is all set to hit the floors on Gandi Jayanti in 2018.
