Rajkummar Rao's 'Made in China' is about the perfect 'jugaadi entrepreneur'

The official trailer of Rajkummar Rao and Mouni  Roy starrer 'Made In China' has been released. Other than these two, the film will also feature Gajraj Rao, Paresh Rawal, Boman Irani and Sumeet Vyas playing important roles. The film is an entertaining journey of a man who has the ability to ‘jugaad’ his way out of any situation and become a successful entrepreneur.

Based on the life of a Gujarati businessman, Raghu, Rajkummar starts his journey to China to expand his business. Throughout the journey, he learns some valuable lessons and all these combines together to help him become a triumphant entrepreneur. Mouni will be seen playing the role of his wife, Rukmini.

Mikhil Musale, National award winner has helmed this forthcoming film. He was awarded the Best Director for the 2016 drama thriller, Wrong Side Raju. Hindi Medium-fame, Dinesh Vijan is the producer.

Musale, while sharing his experience of working with Rajkummar said that the actor learned the language, gained weight and spent an entire month in the city prior to the shoot of the film. Musale, who has spent his former years in Ahmedabad said, When he signed on to be part of the film, he was already thinking ahead and making mental notes about what aspects he will need to work on to ace his characterization.

He further added, Raj and I had many conversations to solidify the space of Raghu Mehta’s world. Next thing I know, I get a call from him telling me that he is in Ahmedabad. He took a video camera and visited many busy areas of Ahmedabad from Lal Darwaja to Gandhi market to Manek Chowk and also a few places that lots of people don’t know about. He visited these places completely under the radar - going virtually unrecognizable.

Musale was super impressed with Rajkummar for the way he was preparing for his role. The latter “spoke to local store owners, young people shopping in those areas and also ate food from the local places to sink his teeth into the colloquialism and the culture.

The director, Mikhil added, I really don’t know how he did it. And that too, in such a short time span. That’s his secret and that’s honestly the magic of a performer as incredible as Raj. I think he has spoiled me for life as this was my first Hindi film and I was fortunate enough to work with possibly the most collaborative artist.

Made in China was previously set to hit the screens on 15th August but now it will be released in the theatres on Diwali this year.
