Shanghaiist is still working here in the capital and an article entitled The Birth of Chollywood caught our attention earlier today while flipping through the October issue of Time Out Beijing. And it informs us that a new Bollywood film will soon be shot in China and it will be entitled — yes, you guessed it — “Made in China”.
We thought the article was kind of interesting so it’s a pity we weren’t able to link to it here because Time Out Beijing is not available online (boo to that). But it does pique our interest in the film because apparently it’s the very first film to “combine Bollywood dancing with kung fu, and Hindi actors with Mainland Chinese ones”. This will also be Warner Brothers’ very first foray into Indian film after being in the country for 75 years. They will be financing the 12 million USD film in its entirety.
Made in China is due to be released at the end of 2008. For more information, check out the Warner Brothers press release:
