Sharman in the driver’s seat!

The actor’s sawaari in his Ferrari is going at top speed, with the Vinod Chopra film being shot in the gallis of Mumbai

It was rumoured that the filming of Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s much-talked of production, Ferrari Ki Sawaari, had been delayed as the storyline was similar to that of a Marathi film, Taryanche Bait. The good news for Sharman Joshi fans is that the project is going great guns, as per schedule. FKS is a sweet and warm tale about a young father, played by Sharman, and his son. Rajesh Mapuskar, a protégé of Munnabhai series director Rajukumar Hirani, has wrapped up the first schedule and on his second shooting lap. They have also finished the picturisation of two songs composed by Pritam. And the aim is to complete filming by November this year. The spokesperson of the film reveals, “Sixty per cent of Ferrari ki Sawaari has been shot. It has been filmed mostly on the roads and real locations. Recently, they also shot on the campus of University of Mumbai, Kala Ghoda vicinity and other areas of Mumbai.” Apparently Mapuskar is inspired by his mentor Hirani to shoot at real locations. Sharman has been shooting day and night for it and will be soon joined by Boman Irani, who plays an important role in the film. We wait to watch this one – after all, the reticent Mr Joshi is a hot favourite, especially after 3 Idiots and the ads he is being seen in!
