Made In China is based on the life of a struggling businessman, Raghu, who embarks on a journey to China in order to make his business flourish. The funny journey and Rajkummar's experiences help the actor to become a successful entrepreneur later. Mouni will be seen portraying Rajkummar's wife (Rukmini) in the film.
This is Mouni's first collaboration with Rajkummar Rao. In an exclusive interview to mid-day, the Gold actress said that she considers herself fortunate to share screen space with Rajkummar Rao so early on in her film career. "I have learned everything from Raj on this film and for my role. He helped me endlessly during our rehearsals, not only for the scenes that we had together but also for my solo sequences. His inputs were valuable and helped me become a better actor", she said.
Excited as she is to be part of a quirky comedy, she reveals that acing the Gujarati wife act did not come easy to her. The actor credited director Mikhil Musale for ensuring that her role was not caricatured, even as it provided comic relief in the film. "Although I essay the role of a Gujarati woman in the film, my director didn't want to make it stereotypical. He asked me to keep it natural", she added.
Till now, the makers have released three foot-tapping songs from the movie. The first song, Odhani which has sourced its inspiration from 1985's Meru Malan. The song is full of style and sass. The second one, Sanedo is a Navratri number has been sung by Mika Singh, Benny Dayal, and Nikhita Gandhi. The video features the lead pair in a romantic moment as they dance to the beats of this Navratri number.
The third song - The Naari Naari song boasts of a dash of nostalgia with a complete reworking of Hisham Abbas's Habibi Dah (Nari Narain). The song features music by Sachin-Jigar and lyrics by Vayu. The video for the single features the lead pair - Rajkummar and Mouni. With Rajkummar's character dreaming about the secret ingredient in his world-famous 'tiger soup'.
The film is being directed by National Award-winner Mikhil Musale, who won an award for his 2016 drama-thriller Wrong Side Raju. The film is locked for release on October 25, 2019, and will clash with Akshay Kumar's Housefull 4 and Taapsee Pannu's Saand Ki Aankh at the box office. We wish the Made in China team best of luck!
