Made in China, also starring Mouni Roy and Boman Irani, will release on Diwali.
Rajkummar Rao, who will be seen as a Gujarati businessman in the upcoming flick Made in China has shown his exceptionally unique marketing strategy in a promotional video.
In a post shared by Rao on Instagram, the actor can be seen selling off a pen to none other than Hollywood star, Leonardo DiCaprio. In the video, the actor gives a clever yet funny twist to the scene from The Wolf of Wall Street.
DiCaprio walks upto a man in the video and asks him to sell a pen. The man fumbles and then DiCaprio is seen approaching someone else. The video then cuts to Rao, who says, "Leo Bhai Kem Cho! Arre Leo Bhai this pen is your story but the refill is the hero. So sell hero (sic)," he says. The video ends with a another clip of the Hollywood actor clapping in appreciation.
Here is the video.
