This is not the first time that film stars have challenged their colleagues on social media. Earlier this year, Arunachalam Murugunantham (the inventor of low-cost sanitary pad making machine), film's lead actor Akshay Kumar and producer Twinkle Khanna started the PadMan Challenge, which gained massive popularity after many celebrities shared pictures of themselves holding sanitary pads. Another challenge that gained popularity was the Beat Pe Booty Challenge for the film A Flying Jatt wherein Jacqueline Fernandez nominated her colleagues to share videos of themselves dancing to the song Beat Pe Booty.
Directed by Sharat Katariya and produced by Yash Raj Films, Sui Dhaagais set against the backdrop of a small town named Chanderi. Sui Dhaaga is slated to release on September 28.
