As competition at the box office continues to get tougher with films fighting it out to attract more footfalls, makers and stars are constantly looking for new ways to make their releases stand out. And what better way to do that than to engage people in various challenges. After the makers of films like ‘PadMan’ and ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’, to name a few, opted for a similar promotional strategy, ‘Sui Dhaaga’ stars Anushka Sharma and Varun Dhawan are challenging other actors to complete a task.
The duo took to their official Twitter handles to post a video of Anushka Sharma trying to insert a thread through the needle eye. In her tweet, the actress nominated her 'Jab Tak Hai Jaan' co-star Shah Rukh Khan. And voila! no prizes for guessing that the man of many talents completed the challenge to perfection but not without adding a hilarious twist to it. The actor used a rather humongous needle and he easily threaded the needle in a split second. Shah Rukh Khan took to social media to share the video of him completing the challenge and posted, “@AnushkaSharma challenge done my way. Love u and all the best for Sui Dhaaga. May everyone’s hard work & belief be appreciated and rewarded.”
Here's his tweet:
Varun Dhawan had earlier challenged Akshay Kumar to put a thread to a needle but the actor accepted defeat. Akshay further nominated Sachin Tendulkar and tweeted, “जिसका काम उसी को साजे और करे तो डंडा बाजे Mauji bhai @Varun_dvn here’s my attempt at the #SuiDhaagaChallenge, not as easy as it looks. I now nominate @sachin_rt.”
A number of other stars like Alia Bhatt, Aditya Roy Kapoor, Karan Johar, Ranbir Kapoor among others.
