It is a known fact that Varun Dhawan plays the role of an innocent local tailor from heartland India, Mauji, in YRF’s upcoming entertainer Sui Dhaaga – Made in India. From the time the first look of Varun was released, it was hugely lauded. Audiences praised the simplicity and authenticity and the look became a huge talking point. The costume designer, Darshan Jalan, revealed the big secret behind his inspiration and it’s a really heart-warming one. No one knows that the tailor overseeing Varun’s prep and training for the film, Noor, is the real inspiration behind Mauji’s look!
Darshan says, “Mauji is from the lower middle class income strata. He is a simple person who works in the city as a help/peon in a sewing machine store. Regular people on the streets became an inspiration for us, like the ittar perfume guy from the streets of Haridwar and particularly Noor, our in-house tailor who was also training Varun to perfect his art of stitching and tailoring! From a styling point of view, we ensured that Varun’s look had things that a tailor who could think of, or would come up with such as, zipper on the side of the pants so that he could reduce the size of the flare to keep it from getting caught while cycling. Zipper on the trouser hem so that the ends don’t tear. These intricate details I believe makes audience see something new and adds to the authenticity of the character from a small town in India.”
A film about finding love and respect through self-reliance, Varun is paired opposite Anushka Sharma who plays an embroiderer in the film. Sui Dhaaga – Made in India is produced by Maneesh Sharma and directed by Sharat Katariya. It is set to release on September 28 this year, just before Gandhi Jayanti.
