Made in China, Dinesh Vijan’s next production venture releasing this Diwali, has gathered tremendous steam and thus developed some serious anticipation among audiences after the successful reception of the trailer and the three songs. Produced by Maddock Films in association with Jio Studios, Made in China is a celebration of the spirit of entrepreneurship and a never say die attitude via the story of a small-time Gujarati businessman from Ahmedabad. The movie stars Rajkummar Rao, Mouni Roy, Boman Irani, Paresh Rawal, Gajraj Rao in the pivotal roles.
The film stars Rajkummar Rao as the leading man – Raghu Mehta. Playing the character of Raghu’s partner in his business venture – Sexologist Dr Vardhi. As prep for his role Boman Irani and director Mikhil Musale met several professionals to understand nuances of the character. The most relevant material came from renowned sexologist and columnist Dr Mahinder Watsa.
Mikhil, who researched the subject and wrote the script of Made in China, says,
“Dr Watsa was so honest, experienced and articulate. He’s been working in this field since the ’50s. And his vast knowledge, whether clinical, psychological or societal was immensely helpful.”
The debutant director admits how surprised him and Boman Irani were on learning about the kind of queries posed to the 96-year-old veteran sexologist.
“Sex is a subject people are the most confused about. Even though there’s so much information available online and it is discussed widely on the internet, a lot of people continue to be misled by incorrect information. Boman and I were shocked to hear that people still ask things as bizarre as – if a man and woman masturbate together can lead to pregnancy? Some of the queries have even inspired a few instances and dialogues in our film. It’s surprising how inhibited we are about the subject of sex given that we are a country of 1.3 billion. That’s one of the reasons why we made this film. The issue needs to be addressed but in an entertaining yet sensitive manner” says Mikhil.
Produced by Maddock Films in association with Jio Cinemas. Made in China also stars Rajkummar Rao, Mouni Roy, Sumeet Vyas, Paresh Rawal and Gajraj Rao besides Boman Irani. The movie is set to release this Diwali.
