Anushka Sharma and Varun Dhawan celebrated the Indian Independence Day by hoisting a flag made by local artists.

Like the name of the film Sui Dhaaga – Made in India, artisans from the corners of India got together to create a handmade Tricolor that celebrates Indian craftsmanship.

Producer Maneesh Sharma said, “Our film is a celebration of Indian craftsmanship that is winning hearts and accolades across the globe and this is our salute to our motherland."

Speaking on this unique celebration, Anushka said, "When I was told that our artists have worked tirelessly day in and day out to make our national flag that gives a tribute to the brilliant history and diverse culture of craftsmanship of our country, I was keen to see the outcome.

"The artists have really made a truly special flag that captures the diversity and unity of our country and it has made my Independence Day even more special."

Varun added, “As an Indian, I feel proud to hold my national flag every time I get the opportunity to do so and Sui Dhaaga has made that experience even more special as we are celebrating our Independence Day by saluting the brilliant home-grown arts and crafts industry. Our film's spirit of Make In India resonates with the pride and honour of Independence Day and our handmade flag is a humble salute to our spirit of freedom."

A film about finding love and respect through self-reliance, Sui Dhaaga – Made in Indiahas paired Anushka and Varun together for the first time, making them the most exciting pair to come together on screen. While Varun plays the role of a tailor, Anushka plays an embroiderer in the film.

The film is set to release on September 28.
