MUMBAI: Usha International, one of India’s leading household consumer durables company, proudly announces its association with Sui Dhaaga - Made In India produced by Yash Raj Films and starring Bollywood heartthrobs Varun Dhawan and Anushka Sharma. As the pioneers of sewing machines in India when they started in 1936, Usha International is today a leading sewing machine brand in India and offers a range of technologically advanced solutions to cater to a wide variety of sewing needs.

Sui Dhaaga - Made in India celebrates and is aligned with Usha’s philosophy of swadeshi and ‘Make in India’ through the heart-warming story of Mauji (Varun Dhawan) and Mamta (Anushka Sharma). The film showcases their passion and talent which progresses in life and creates a fashion label Sui Dhaaga – Made In India, reinforcing the fact that sewing in deeply entrenched across classes and masses in India and has the potential to bring about impactful socio-economic change in the lives of people who use it to further their passion and creativity. Usha sewing machines are an integral part of the film both visually and thematically.

Usha has been promoting sewing in India for decades inspiring people to create, innovate, and experience the joy of sewing. Associating with a film like Sui Dhaaga - Made In India that highlights the struggles of the marginalized and creative people, underscores Usha's commitment to partnering with initiatives that focus on empowerment and showcase how sewing can be a game-changer that can potentially transform lives. 

Talking about the association, Mr. Harvinder Singh, President – Sewing Machines & Appliances, Usha International Ltd, said, “Usha is very proud to be associated with Sui Dhaaga - Made In India, a film that celebrates the entrepreneurial spirit that exists across India. The movie is in perfect synergy with our philosophy that sewing is a skill that anyone can learn and use to elevate their quality of life, and also serves as a powerful tool to mainstream the marginalized. We are definitely looking at this association to connect with the masses and bring to life the joy that comes with unleashing one’s creativity using a sewing machine and, of course, the potential economic benefits that follow. It could be a person in a small town who wants financial independence or then a corporate leader who wants a creative outlet.” 

Manan Mehta, Vice President – Marketing & Merchandising, from Yash Raj Films said, “Unarguably, Usha is synonymous with sewing machines in India for over eight decades so it was a win-win situation for both of us. Am happy to have Usha partner us in the co-marketing journey of Sui Dhaaga - Made In India. With innovative ideas for co-promoting the agenda of self- reliance and dignity of labour, Usha along with Sui Dhaaga - Made In India will endeavour to spread this message as far and wide as possible.”
