Made in China Box Office Collection Day 2: Rajkummar Rao-Mouni Roy Film Earns INR 1.53 Crore
Rajkummar Rao’s comedy film Made in China has earned a total of INR 2.78 crore over two days. Check out the complete box office report below.
People in India have been occupied with Diwali festivities which has meant that pre-Diwali weekend releases have experienced a relatively lower turnout at the cinema theatres. Rajkummar Rao and Mouni Roy starrer Made in China is among the movies, released on Friday, 25th October, which had a low opening collection. The movie collected INR 1.25 crore on its opening day. However, the film showed some improvement on Saturday, the second day of its release, as it earned INR 1.53 crore, bringing the total collection to INR 2.78 crore. Its two-day worldwide collection amounted to INR 4.5 crore.
The film is also facing tough competition from other new, big releases, including Akshay Kumar’s Housefull 4 and Taapsee Pannu-Bhumi Pednekar starrer Saand Ki Aankh. These movies have big stars and their release on the same day has also limited the number of screens allotted to Made in China. The movie is however profitable as it was made on a budget of INR 25 crore and this investment has already been recovered via the sale of satellite, digital and music rights.
Directed by Mikhil Musale, Made in China follows the story of a middle-aged Gujrati businessman (portrayed by Rajkummar) who goes to China in search of better prospects. It follows the theme of entrepreneurship as well as the traditional Indian mindset around the subject of sex. While being an entertainer, the movie emphasises on the need to talk about sex in India. It has received generally positive reviews, especially due to Rajkummar and Boman Irani’s strong performances. A review in News18 read, “Made In China benefits from enjoyable performances of its two key players, Rajkummar Rao and Boman Irani. While Rajkummar is at home playing the guy next door with big dreams, Boman's Dr Vardhi is yet another understated comic addition to the actor's versatile repertoire.”
