Amyra Dastur plays a business-savvy Guajarati girl, an assistant to Boman Irani‘s character in Made In China. Set to reunite with Rajkummar Rao for the second time after Judgementall Hai Kya, Made In China actor Amyra Dastur says it’s easy to get overshadowed by the much-acclaimed actor if an artiste doesn’t “bring on their A-Game”. “Seeing a fine actor like Raj play two distinct roles across films was fun. I enjoy the pressure of being surrounded by actors like Boman Irani and Raj, because it makes me perform to the best of my ability.”

Amyra DasturDastur plays a business-savvy Gujrati girl, an assistant to Irani’s character, who Rao — a desperate businessman — approaches to make a sale of his magic soup. Given that like Irani, Dastur is also a Parsi, she admits her family members were thrilled to hear of their collaboration. “My family has always admired him. My community honors him. They were more excited about this film than they have been of my past offerings. His comic timing is truly worth watching.”

Rajkummar Rao and Mouni Roy would often dance on the sets of Made in China

To get into the groove of the day and scene, lead cast Rajkummar Rao and Mouni Roy would often dance on the sets of their next – Made in China

On set co-star camaraderie is something Bollywood is all too familiar with. While the notion of cat fights and ego tussles are what make stories juicy, it’s really the bonding that helps make those experiences memorable and those stories worthwhile. The vibe on the sets of Made in China was no exception!

The lead pair of Dinesh Vijan’s next production venture – Made in China – Rajkummar Rao and Mouni Roy found something different to bond over and that’s dancing. Both are known to have quite the flair for dance. It thus comes as no surprise to find out that first time co-stars would use dance to kick start their say and get into the mood.

“Every morning, we would play a track or two depending on the mood we had to get into for the scenes we were shooting that day and we would dance like maniacs” says Mouni. “Raj enjoys dancing just as much as I do and it was such a delight to see him share my passion and my madness. He’s really one of the coolest and most fun people I’ve worked with who doesn’t take himself too seriously but puts every ounce of his being into whatever he does – be it dancing off camera to giving that jaw dropping performance,” Mouni says signing off

Produced by Maddock Films in association with Jio Cinemas, The film also stars Mouni Roy, Boman irani, Sumeet vyas, Paresh Rawal and Gajraj Rao and is set to release this Diwali.

Rajkummar Rao’s unique look in Made In China!

Rajkummar Rao recently launched the trailer of his film Made In China along with his co-star Mouni Roy, director Mikhil Musale and producer of the film Dinesh Vijan. The trailer gave glimpse of Rao’s unique look in the film, where he plays a small time Gujarati businessman.

Known to get under the skin of every character he plays on screen, actor-extraordinaire Rajkummar Rao raised the “prep” bar many notches higher with his next – Made in China that will hit the big screen this Diwali. Since this was his first tryst with the Gujarati culture, Raj decided to take the bull by the horns and spent a month in Ahmedabad ahead of the shoot. He even spent time learning the language – both at its core and how it’s locally spoken.

Also for his look, not only did Raj gain around 8 kgs for his belly but also added a unique feature to his face, a unibrow. Interestingly, director Mikhil Musale actually has a unibrow. Inspired by his director, Raj came up with the idea of sporting the same and added it to his look to give his character, Raghu Mehta a standout feature that’ll capture eyeballs.

Raj says, “When i saw Mikhil, I immediately made up my mind to sport a unibrow. It looked very hatke and I felt it gave my character an interesting look” Well, we can definitely say that it was a good idea. Rao’s look has got a big thumbs up from his Industry colleagues.

Rajkumar Hirani opens up about the relocation of Rancho wall

Ace filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani’s 3 Idiots stands to be one of the most loved films of Bollywood. The blockbuster not only garnered love and appreciation from the audience and critics alike but is also one of the highest grossing films of all time.

The cult film is considered a classic and is loved for every element in the film. 3 Idiots created such an uproar amongst the masses that the school in Leh where the film was shot had dedicated an entire wall to Aamir Khan’s character Rancho, making the Rancho wall a famous tourist point. However, due to the constant hustle of the visitors, students in the school are unable to focus on their studies. Therefore, the management has decided to relocate the wall.

The school’s principal, Stanzin Kunzang, has said that the decision was taken as it had become very difficult to control a large number of tourists visiting the wall every day. Besides the fact that the school campus was being littered badly, students were also reportedly getting distracted by the number of tourists flocking to the Wall.

Filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani came across the news and shared his opinion on the same saying, “I’ve read about the decision to relocate the Rancho Wall. My entire cast and crew and I have some wonderful memories of that place.” But what’s his take on the rationale behind the decision? “Honestly, if the constant stream of tourists is hampering the kids’ education, distracting them and creating problems, then I feel it is the right call. At the end of the day, they were the ones who created and gave that wall its name, so I am sure it must be very close to them as well.”

Earlier, there were reports that the school was planning to raze the wall as well as ban the tourists from the campus, however, the school authorities have denied the reports and said tourists are very much still welcome. Reportedly, an enhanced 3 Idiots visitor experience has been planned in the vicinity of the school campus, near the existing Rancho’s Cafe.

3 Idiots starring Aamir Khan, Kareena Kapoor, R Madhavan, Sharman Joshi, and Boman Irani created waves not just in India but also opened a huge audience market in China. The film is touted to be one of the most loved films celebrating friendship in Bollywood, making the Rajkumar Hirani directorial an all-time blockbuster.

Rajkumar Hirani is touted to be a miracle maker proving his Midas touch at the box office time and again. The last venture of the director ‘Sanju’ broke major records at the box office and is the highest grosser of the year and the third highest grosser of all time.
