One of the most dedicated actors in the industry Varun Dhawan knows how to get into the skin of the character. He will be playing the role of a tailor in the upcoming movie Sui Dhaaga: Made In India and the actor revealed, it took him 3 months to learn tailoring. Going by the trailer, it appears that it must be really hard to get into the character of Mauji. So now, the makers of the film have released a video showing Varun Dhawan’s journey to become Sui Dhaaga’s Mauji.
In the video, Varun Dhawan is seen revealing how he used to work on the sewing machine for hours to get it right. He even joked that one can go blind but the thread will never enter the needle. Varun Dhawan reveals that he knew he had to master the art to convince people thathe is a real 'Masterji'. Darshan (the costume designer) and Noor bhai (the tailor on the sets) helped Varun Dhawan to learn the skill and transform into Mauji perfectly.
Varun also reveals that at first he made a blouse on his own, then a shirt and then a pillow cover. In an interview recently, Varun revealed, "As an actor, I like to get challenged to become someone else on-screen."
"It was frustrating because initially, I wasn't getting it right. The needle pierced my fingers multiple times. (But) I'm so glad that I went through the drill because I have picked up a new skill in the process. It took me 3 months... Sometimes 2 hours and sometimes 4 hours in each tailoring class to get the confidence that I could pull this off in front of the camera," added the Badlapur actor claiming that he is now "very comfortable" on the sewing machine.
Sui Dhaaga brings together National Award winning producer-director combo of Maneesh Sharma and Sharat Katariya after their blockbuster Dum Laga Ke Haisha. The film is a special salute to the inherent entrepreneurial spirit that the youth of India and the country's local artisans have.
