Warner Bros Indian connection: Made In China

Warner Bros is celebrating its 75th year of being in India, by going local, finally.

The Hollywood giant's first foray into Indian film production will be Ramesh Sippy's Made in China, to be directed by Nikhil Advani and produced by Mukesh Talreja and Rohan Sippy, starring Akshay Kumar and Deepika Padukone.

The $12-million action film, entirely financed by Warner, will be the first Indian production to be shot on location in China and will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros Pictures, a Warner Bros Entertainment company.

One of the largest producers of film and television entertainment, Warner Bros is part of the $43.6-billion Time Warner empire.

"We are excited and proud to be working with such respected partners as Ramesh Sippy and Mukesh Talreja, as this production has outstanding talent associated with it," said Blaise Fernandes, country manager, Warner Bros. Entertainment India.

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 crazy adventures of a hapless simpleton cook from Mumbai, essayed by Akshay Kumar.
