Also starring Anushka Sharma, the film is about finding love and respect through self-reliance. Its plot is inspired by Mahatma Gandhi's philosophy and takes a leaf out of the Make In India campaign.
The team of the film reached out to local artisans and craftsmen from across the country to create the logo of the film in their unique stitching styles.
The logo was launched on Tuesday coinciding with the National Handloom Day.
It took the team six months to plan, research and execute the film's logo in 15 different styles, including in hand needlework forms of Kashida and Sozni from Kashmir, colourful Phulkari from Punjab, the intricate thread work forms Rabari and Mochi Bharat from Gujarat, Phool Patti from Uttar Pradesh and Zardozi work from Lucknow.
Directed by Sharat Kataria and produced by Maneesh Sharma, "Sui Dhaaga - Made In India" will release on September 28.
