Entrepreneurship and startups have gained tremendous momentum in India and why should B-Town be left behind. With his latest film, Made In China, leading man Rajkummar Rao headlines the story of a small-time Gujarati businessman who strikes out with his ventures so many times only to finally strike gold with a truly unique and jugaadu idea.
Through his journey of understanding the life of Raghu and his struggles as an entrepreneur, Raj understood much more about what a business owner goes through to make his venture successful and keep it going. During the course of the film, he was so happy to be able to portray that life can be an example for the entrepreneurial fraternity from small town India.
“The mantra that every business owner should operate with is – Never Say Die. That is one of the main things is that I picked up when I read the script of Made In China. Here is a man who has never had a successful business, yet has never given up. And that’s the core of my character – Raghu Mehta. He kept at it no matter what the odds. I’m so glad that I have been able to have this opportunity to tell budding entrepreneurs what it means to be one and how one always has to keep their spirits going, no matter what the circumstances. The story of Made In China in so many ways reflects the average Indian and all that he stands for. ” says Raj
Ask him if he would ever consider being a business owner in real life and he says, “I am so enamored by the entire entrepreneurial bent and yes, it definitely has given me the impetus to maybe consider venturing into being a business owner of some sort. I have a few ideas in mind but until they bear fruit, all I’d say is wait and watch. “
