Dinesh Vijan, who had earlier produced Hindi Medium, will be featuring Rajkummar Rao as the lead in the movie 'Made In China', trade analysts confirmed on Friday. Rajkummar will be seen as a struggling Gujarati entrepreneur, and the film will show Rajkumar's hilarious journey through China to become a successful businessman.  

According to the reports, Dinesh approached Rao after watching his amazing performance in the upcoming movie Stree, which is produced by Dinesh.

The movie 'Made In China' will go on the floors in September this year. The movie will be directed by Mikhil Musale, whose 2016 thriller-drama 'Wrong Side Raju' bagged the National Award for Best Feature Film in Gujrati. He will be making his Bollywood debut as a director with this film which will be shot in Ahmedabad and across China.

Producer Dinesh Vijan confirmed this news to Mirror and said "It was incredible to experience the overwhelming response of the Chinese audience to Hindi Medium. I had the privilege of being there during its release in China and more than the excitement of the film’s impending box-office success, I was bowled over by the love that the film received. The realisation that we have such similar cultures and that films can be made keeping both markets in mind is an exciting prospect for me. When I discussed the idea of Made In China with my associates there, they seemed as excited as I was which led to us creating the film.”

Further, when asked about Rajkummar Rao, Dinesh said that "Raj is a versatile and highly credible actor. He has done a fabulous job in Stree. When he was working on that film, we narrated this concept to him and let’s just say he refused to let it go!” 

Looks like 2018 is the year of Rajkummar Rao, the actor has a number of releases this year. He will be seen in Stree, opposite Shraddha Kapoor and is also starring in Fanne Khan with Aishwarya Rai and Anil Kapoor. He will also be playing the lead in '5 Weddings' along with Nargis Fakhri. Rao is currently shooting in London with Kangana Ranaut for Ekta Kapoor's 'Mental Hai Kya'.
