The key players of the eagerly anticipated Ferrari Ki Sawaari: director Rajesh Mapuskar, writer Rajkumar Hirani and leading man Sharman Joshi came together for a media interaction on Tuesday at a suburban theatre.
Among the event’s main highlights, the star of the film namely the child who plays Sharman’s son was revealed as part of the song Maara Re.
While the kid wasn’t there, the uncanny resemblance he bears to Sachin Tendulkar during his growing up years was obvious from the promo. Things like certain batting postures, the slight bending of the leg at the batting crease, etc. were giveaways that the makers have been inspired by more than just the master blaster’s Ferrari.
Later, Rajesh and Raju shared an interesting anecdote. Many years ago, over multiple glasses of beer, Raju, who was very impressed with Rajesh’s work as assistant director on Lage Raho Munna Bhai and 3 Idiots, had, in an unguarded moment, told him that whenever Rajesh directed a film, he would personally write the dialogues for it.
While Raju stopped having beer with Rajesh ever since that day, hoping Rajesh would forget what he had promised in a drunken state, Rajesh, being Rajesh, remembered and actually asked him to pen the dialogues of Ferrari…
What followed was, in Raju’s own words at the launch, “I ended up spending six months on it.” And Vidhu Vinod Chopra joked, “I thought you (Raju) did it for the love of your assistant.”
And that wasn’t the only instance the trio shared. Apparently, at some point, Raju had thought aloud , “I will write dialogues the entire night and give them to Rajesh the next day only to be told Arre sir, majaa nahi aaya, phir se likhna padega.”
To which, another rejoinder by Chopra followed, “Raju got a taste of his own medicine. When I wrote the dialogues for Lage Raho and 3 idiots, he would do the same with me.”
When Sharman was asked about a possible marketing strategy, Chopra’s wit surfaced once again, “There is a big marketing strategy where we will make Sharman dress as a superhero in black chaddis and make him dance at various malls.”
And asked why the kid who bore a likeness to Sachin was missing from the event, Chopra clarified, “He will appear only after the film is released.”
