‘Solo’ sawaari for ‘aapro’ Sharman

For once, popular actor Sharman Joshi will finally be seen as a ‘solo screen-hero’ in the latest Vidhu Vinod Chopra production Ferrari Ki Sawari (FKS) releasing today. Although tagged ‘solo’, the jovial Joshi will be sharing screen-space with the scene-stealing luxurious flaming-red ‘Ferrari’ sports-car and a little cricket-crazy boy (Ritwik) who plays his son. And of course Boman Irani. As if to lure the masses, the same movie also boasts of a raunchy laavni item-dance by Vidya Balan which goes ‘Malaa Jau De’.

According to director Rajesh Mhapuskar, the unconven-tional ‘milestone’ movie FKS is an endearing kahaani of unconditional love between a Parsi father (Sharman) and his son. It is about the young kid's ardent dream to play cricket at the renowned Lords.

 Apparently, the enterprising Sharman had to work extra-hard on his Parsi-father’s character, Rusi. Enthuses Sharman, “It was definitely not a cakewalk, as most people may surmise. In order to appear as a ‘father’ and look slightly mature, I had to put on paunchy weight. Then there was this challenge of speaking like a Parsi with their typical accent and mannerisms. As part of my training regime, I was required to interact with a lot of Parsis and observe them and imbibe their traits. Trust me, I had to appear for some 35-plus auditions after which I was finalised,” says Sharman.

Curiously enough, Sunjay Dutt offered valuable driving tips to Sharman whilst driving a Ferrari at high speeds. Confirms Joshi, “Yes that’s true, Sunjubaba gave me some amazing advice. But the crowning glory is that the Ferrari which we have used in the movie previously belonged to Sachin Tendulkar.”
