Anushka Sharma is quite happy with the film's box office collection and the reviews. She told news agency IANS: "I am very happy that the film has not only set the registers ringing but also received a lot of love from people, and that is paramount for us. I always believed that this film would reach the masses."
Sui Dhaaga is the story of how Mamta (Anushka Sharma) and Mauji (Varun Dhawan) make a name for themselves in the tailoring and embroidery industry. Anushka told IANS that taking up Mamta's role was 'risky' as she is completely opposite to Mamta IRL.
Sui Dhaaga opened along with Vishal Bhardwaj's Pataakha, starring Sanya Malhotra and Radhika Madan in lead roles. Pataakha collected a little over Rs 7 crore in the same time Sui Dhaaga made close to Rs 60 crore.
