Speaking to media, Union Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan said, "Varun Dhawan and Anushka Sharma, through this unique film 'Sui Dhaaga - Made in India', are bringing to focus the incredible skills and talent of our homegrown artisan and craftsmen community."

"I wish this endorsement by both actors encourages and influences the youth to take up skill training and earn a better livelihood for themselves and help us in creating the New India envisioned by Prime Minister Narendra Modi," Pradhan added.

According to media reports Actor Varun Dhawan, who plays a tailor named Mauji, also said, "Our Prime Minister Modi has displayed incredible vision and genuine foresight in aiming to organise, skill, train and give financial support and backing to our craftsmen, artisans and similar workmen. We are proud to be promoting this campaign that we feel extremely close to like our movie 'Sui Dhaaga...' that celebrates self-reliance and entrepreneurship."

Anushka Sharma also added that "Skill India Campaign reflects the government's determination to include and support the talented skilled force of the country. While making 'Sui Dhaaga...', we came across so many stories of talented, skilled craftspeople and artisans who don't get a fair chance to showcase their talents."
