Owing to the Diwali festivities, collections are expected to be on the lower side for the newer releases of the week. Hence, even a marginal growth is fair enough for the ones which are in the running. This is what happened with Made In China which had Friday collections of Rs. 1.25 crores and then saw Saturday seeing a marginal improvement with Rs. 1.53 crores coming in.
Of course the collections are still on the lower side and one would have expected a better result for the Rajkummar Rao and Mouni Roy starrer. There is huge competition from Housefull 4 and the film is running at only selected screens and shows.
Nonetheless, for producer Dinesh Vijan the film is still profitable as the entire investment of Rs. 25 crores (Cost of production: Rs. 15 crores, P & A: Rs. 10 crores) has been recovered through sales of satellite, digital and music rights. Of course theatrical business has its own returns and one now waits to see the kind of numbers that come from box office sales before the end of run for Made In China. So far, the film has collected Rs. 2.78 crores.
