Made In China: Rajkummar Rao, Mouni Roy film gets new release date, will hit screens on 30 August 2019

Made In China, featuring Rajkummar Rao, Boman Irani and Mouni Roy, has been pushed a couple of weeks and will now release on 30 August, 2019. The Mikhil Musale directorial was initially supposed to release on Independence Day, 2019. Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted the news recently.

Coincidentally Rajkummar's other box-office success and the sleeper hit of 2018, Stree, also released on 31 August this year.

The Independence Day holiday has been a coveted slot for many films in 2019. With Prabhas’ Saaho, Akshay Kumar’s Mission Mangal and John Abraham’s Batla House all releasing on the same day, Made In China makers may well have taken a wise decision to withdraw from the four-way clash and avoid the stiff competition brought in by the other three major films.

Earlier, Karan Johar's mega project Brahmastra was slotted for a 15 August release. The Ayan Mukerji directorial, features Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt and Amitabh Bachchan. Karan withdrew the release from the Independence Day slot to shift Brahmastra's release to Christmas 2019. The producer cum director made the shift to vacate the holiday slot for Mission Mangal featuring Akshay Kumar.

Made In China, produced by Dinesh Vijan of Maddock Films, will be distributed by Bhushan Kumar of T-Series.

John Abraham, once an experimental actor and symbol of unassuming masculinity, reduced to a demolishing machine today

Ironically, John Abraham was a punch-up, anti-establishment emblem sex symbol in his prime. The most unobvious of male leads — handsome, and yet approaching something other than the sum of his handsomeness.
