Made In China: Rajkummar Rao, Mouni Roy film gets new release date, will hit screens on 30 August 2019
Made In China makers wanted to avoid a clash with Saaho, Mission Mangal, Batla House
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.
Rajkummar Rao, Boman Irani and Mouni Roy... #MadeInChina gets a new release date: 30 Aug 2019... Directed by Mikhil Musale... Produced by Dinesh Vijan... The producer had released #Stree on 31 Aug 2018.

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.
The trailer of Atrangi Re will release tomorrow, 24 November
Saif Ali Khan on replacing Abhishek Bachchan in Bunty Aur Babli 2: "I was told it is a different movie and it is not the same character (that Bachchan played). Aditya Chopra obviously knows what he is doing, so my character has been tweaked because I was playing it."
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.
