Hindi film stars Varun Dhawan and Anushka Sharma have been declared brand ambassadors of Skill India Mission, one of the flagship programmes of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
The duo are gearing up for their upcoming film Sui Dhaaga which focuses on Skill India Mission.
The film highlights the untapped potential of India’s talented craftsmen and skilled workers at the grassroot level and the challenges and issues faced by them.
“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,’’ said Dhawan at an event.
Both the stars will promote the Mission by engaging skilled talent across India.
” It is really heartening to see actors like them doing a film that has such a significant social message. India is one of the youngest countries in the world; and it is a matter of great pride for us to see such dedicated and passionate skilled youth with entrepreneurial skills in our country who are bringing name and fame to the nation with their work,” said Dharmendra Pradhan, Minister of Petroleum and Natural Gas & Skill Development and Entrepreneurship.
Anushka Sharma said on the association, “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 crafts people and artisans who don’t get a fair chance to showcase their talents.”
