The date of 28 September 2018 saw the release of a path-breaking film from the stable of Yash Raj Films (YRF). The film was ‘Sui Dhaaga – Made In India’. The film starred Varun Dhawan and Anushka Sharma in the lead roles. Besides the film’s promotions, what really worked for the film is the word-of-mouth publicity. The film, which went onto become a runaway hit at the box-office, connected with the audiences, thanks to its simple but effective storyline. For those in the know, will remember that the film’s tagline was, “A film about finding love and respect through self-reliance”.
The latest ‘update’ about this film is that, it is now all set to be released in China. The date of this film’s release has been decided as March 31 this year. In a note issued to the media, Nelson D’Souza (Vice President, International Distribution, Yash Raj Films) said, “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”.
Echoing his sentiments was the film’s producer Maneesh Sharma, who said, ““ 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.”
