Boman confirmed the news saying, “I almost didn’t do this film because of my slipped disc for which I was advised rest for a few weeks. Then, one day, Dino (Dinesh) came across and introduced me to a bunch of young boys saying he was confident I’d work it out with them. I discussed my role, the subject and the treatment in detail with director Mikhil Musale followed by few meetings and I was on."

In Made in China, Rajkummar Rao’s character approaches Boman with a business opportunity, and although reluctant initially, the doctor relents by the end of their conversation. The actor, who starts shooting in Ahmedabad shortly, is all praise for his co-star. “I have followed Raj’s work for a long time and I am excited to work with him because your performance improves if your co-star is superb,” he adds

Dinesh Vijan shared his thoughts on this new addition, "When the entire team got together, Boman was a name that was unanimous amongst all. The role almost seems tailor-made for him. I couldn’t be happier to have him on board."

Made in China is said to be a hilarious take on a struggling Gujarati businessman, played by Rajkummar, and the bizarre journey he undertakes to become a successful entrepreneur. Mouni Roy, who plays his wife, encourages him to undertake the journey to China in hopes that it will make him a successful entrepreneur.
