Power performance alert!

Yash Raj Films is all set to bring another fresh pairing onscreen with its next venture. Titled Sui Dhaaga, the film will bring together Varun Dhawan and Anushka Sharma for the first time. The film will be directed by Dum Laga Ke Haisha director Sharat Kataria and will be based on government's Make in India campaign.

In a statement released by the studio, Varun and Anushka both seemed impressed by the simple yet touching script of the film and are eager to work with each other. While Varun is known for his energetic appeal, boy-next-door image, Anushka is popular for her sensible and strong choices.

As the announcement made its way on social media sites, Varun and Anushka introduced the film's name in a quirky fashion. Engaging in a rather interesting and 'shudh' hindi conversation, the two actors confirmed the news on their respective handles.

Sharat Kataria is known for telling stories that connect with the simple, middle-class families and Sui Dhagha seems to fall into the same category. While Dum Laga Ke Haisha stayed in the minds of audience and critics alike because of the stellar performance by Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar, it'll be interesting to see how Varun and Anushka weave the story of self-reliance around their star image.

The film will go on floors in January 2018 and will release on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti, birth anniversary of the real man behind Make in India initiative.

Currently, Varun is busy with the remake of 90s hit Judwaa, while Anushka is busy with the promotions of her Imtiaz Ali directed Jab Harry Met Sejal, alongside Shah Rukh Khan.
