Anushka & Varun Yarn Bomb iconic Mumbai spots
The makers have been promoting Sui Dhaaga – Made in India in an extremely innovative way that highlights the outstanding talent of local craftsmen.

The common man statue at Worli Sea face would also be done up by embroidered thread-work for a short period of time.
Anushka says, “Yarn bombing is a rich street art where a city’s iconic spot gets covered by embroidered and crocheted work, basis a theme. This is one of the most innovative marketing activities ever done to promote a film. It is a visually appealing idea that also promotes the hard work and skill of all our talented craftsmen. Our yarn bombing tries to connect with the Make in India spirit that Sui Dhaaga embodies in its story.”
Varun says, “We thoroughly loved participating in yarn bombing the most amazing city in the world – my hometown Mumbai. We were excited to participate and contribute to this idea right from the moment we heard it and I’m just amazed to see the beautiful result.
