After Hindi Medium's success in China, Dinesh Vijan is ready to roll with yet another romantic comedy titled 'Made in China'. The film will go on floor from September in Mumbai, travel to Gujarat and subsequently China.
The makers have roped in Rajkummar Rao and Mouni Roy in the lead and the audiences will witness this fresh pair in a light-hearted film. In the film, Rao plays a struggling Gujarati businessman and Mouni a Mumbai girl who moves to Ahmedabad after marrying him.
A source close to the makers said, "She's a simple housewife, living in a lower-middle-class locality, feisty and crazy about Raj. She's by his side through his struggle and pushes him to go to China when the opportunity calls. Raj, who wants to give her the best, crosses the Great Wall hoping to become a successful entrepreneur. It's the couple's fascinating journey."
Directed by Gujarati director Mikhil Musale who marks Raj's second collaboration with Dinesh after 'Stree'. He's equally excited to have the "sensual and sensitive" Mouni on board.
Dinesh concludes saying, "We wanted someone who'd connect with the heartland and Mouni, a typical Indian beauty, has a huge fan following. She has a strong personality but gentle eyes and is a good dancer which is essential for the role as her character has a passion for classical Indian dance having learnt it. She has started working on her Gujarati dialect. Raj will start prep soon and the chameleon he is, I'm sure he'll quickly get into character."
