MADE IN CHINA is soon going to be rolling- not out of the factories of Guangzhou- but from India, the biggest producer of movies worldwide!

Keeping them company is supermodel turned actress Deepika Padukone, along with Chinese actors. The film has been written by Shridhar Raghavan (Khakee, Bluffmaster, Apaharan). This marks the first time any Indian crew has crossed the Great Wall!
From the hustle bustle of Mumbai bazaars to the hutongs of Beijing, the electric energy of Shanghai and sheer breathtaking Chinese landscapes, MADE IN CHINA chronicles the lunatic adventures of a hapless simpleton cook from Mumbai. As he goes to seek his destiny, he finds himself thrown into a crazy world of megalomaniac villains, femme fatales, crazy inventors, Chinese mysticism and outlandish kung fu assassins.
Commenting on the same Ramesh Sippy said, "India & China have captured the public imagination like no other countries at this point in time. We're making a film that marries together the best of their filmmaking traditions- which merges Indian style dance and masala with Chinese Kungfu and Beijing Opera. And there could be no better partner than Warner to help us reach out to audiences worldwide."
Blaise Fernandes - Country Manager for Warner Bros. Pictures (India) quotes as follows, "We are excited to be a part of this production because of the outstanding talent that is associated with it".
Nikhil Advani will be helming an action film for the first time. He has previously directed the hit drama-musicals KAL HO NA HO & SALAAM-E-ISHQ.
