Anushka and Varun personally participated in creating these live installations at the heart of the city. Girgaon Chowpatty, Worli, Talao Pali Lake, Matunga and Bandstand were picked as locations by the makers to yarn bomb.
Talking about it, Anushka Sharma said, "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 activity 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."
