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 has been promoting sewing in India for decades inspiring people to create, innovate, and experience the joy of sewing.

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.”
