Boman Irani met real life sexologist as research for his role in Made in China- read details

Boman Irani and Made in China director Mikhil Musale met veteran sexologist Dr Mahinder Watsa to help prep for the actor’s role in their film.

Dinesh Vijan's next production venture Made in China is all set to release this Diwali, has gathered tremendous steam and thus developed some serious anticipation among audiences after the successful reception of the trailer and the three songs.

It is produced by Maddock Films in association with Jio Studios, Made in China is a celebration of the spirit of entrepreneurship and a never say die attitude via the story of a small-time Gujarati businessman from Ahmedabad.

The film stars Rajkummar Rao as the leading man who is playing Raghu Mehta in the film. Boman Irani is playing the character of Raghu's partner in his business venture as Sexologist Dr Vardhi.

Boman Irani and Made in China director Mikhil Musale met several professionals to understand the nuances of the character. The most relevant material came from renowned sexologist and columnist Dr Mahinder Watsa.
Mikhil, who researched the subject and wrote the script of Made in China, says, “Dr Watsa was so honest, experienced and articulate. He’s been working in this field since the ’50s and his vast knowledge, whether clinical, psychological or societal was immensely helpful.”

On adding to this he also said, "Sex is a subject people are the most confused about. Even though there’s so much information available online and it is discussed widely on the internet, a lot of people continue to be misled by incorrect information. Boman and I were shocked to hear that people still ask things as bizarre as - if a man and woman masturbate together can lead to pregnancy? Some of the queries have even inspired a few instances and dialogues in our film. It’s surprising how inhibited we are about the subject of sex given that we are a country of 1.3 billion. That’s one of the reasons why we made this film. The issue needs to be addressed but in an entertaining yet sensitive manner” 

It is produced by Maddock Films in association with Jio cinemas. Made in China also stars Mouni Roy, Sumeet Vyas, Paresh Rawal and Gajraj Rao and is set to release this Diwali.
