‘Sui Dhaaga’ Stars Varun Dhawan And Anushka Sharma Signed As Ambassadors Of Skill India Campaign

Bollywood actors Varun Dhawan and Anushka Sharma who will be next seen in the film ‘Sui Dhaaga :Made In India’ have been recently signed to promote and endorse the Skill India Mission, chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Their upcoming film in which Varun aka Mauji will be seen playing a tailor and Anushka aka Mamta as his wife and embroiderer, salutes India’s entrepreneurs and skilled workforce, including homegrown artisans, craftspeople and weavers. The onscreen couple will dedicate time to promote the skilled talent in the country.

Minister of Petroleum and Natural Gas and Minister of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, Shri Dharmendra Pradhan said, “Varun Dhawan and Anushka Sharma, through this unique film Sui Dhaaga - Made in India, are bringing to focus the incredible skills and talent of our homegrown artisan and craftsmen community. It is really heartening to see actors like them doing a film that has such a significant social message. India is one of the youngest countries in the world; and it is a matter of great pride for us to see such dedicated and passionate skilled youth with entrepreneurial skills in our country who are bringing name and fame to the nation with their work. I wish this endorsement by both actors encourages and influences the youth to take up skill training and earn a better livelihood for themselves and help us in creating the New India envisioned by Honorable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi.”

Led by the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (MSDE), Skill India aims to standardize vocational training — both new-age and traditional skills —, helps in creation of latest infrastructure, ensures industry partnerships to extend technology support to make the youth more employable and assists in creating opportunities of employment for the youth of our country. This has led to more than 1 crore youth joining the Skill India Mission every year and transforming their lives through better livelihood.

Varun Dhawan said, “Prime Minister Modi has displayed incredible vision and genuine foresight in aiming to organise, skill, train and give financial support and backing to our craftsmen, artisans and similar workmen. We are proud to be promoting this campaign that we feel extremely close to like our movie Sui Dhaaga that celebrates self-reliance and entrepreneurship’’

Anushka Sharma added, “Skill India Campaign reflects the government’s determination to include and support the talented skilled force of the country. While making Sui Dhaaga, we came across so many stories of talented, skilled crafts people and artisans who don’t get a fair chance to showcase their talents.”
