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 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.
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.
