"The White Tiger" is an adaptation of Aravind Adiga's Man Booker Prize-winning novel of the same name.

Talking about his character in "Made In China", Rajkummar said: "Raghu is one of the exciting parts that I have played. I played a Gujarati businessman in 'Kai Po Che' but it was a subtle character, but in this film I had a chance to go all out. I stayed in Ahmadabad to prepare for my role. Our film's director (Mikhil Musale) has been brought up in Gujarat and I feel we were able to create such a beautiful world that I started smelling Gujarat in my film's script. When people see the film, they will feel that they are with these characters in the film."

"Made In China" also stars Mouni Roy, Boman Irani, Paresh Rawal and Gajraj Rao. It is directed by Mikhil Musale of the Gujarati award-winning film "Wrong Side Raju" fame. The film is slated for a Diwali release.
