Actors Sharman Joshi and Boman Irani starrer Ferrari Ki Sawari hit the theatres Friday and Aamir Khan hopes that the film does so well at the box office that it beats the success of their movie 3 Idiots.
“I am here to wish the entire team. I am sure they have made a good film and Sharman is a nice actor and our wishes are with them. We want everyone who watched 3 Idiots to watch Ferrari Ki Sawaari also. We wish that this film goes far beyond 3 Idiots,” the 47-year-old said Thursday at the premiere of the film.
Ferrari Ki Sawaari is Rajesh Mapuskar’s directorial debut and has been produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra.
Rajkumar Hirani, who has edited the film, stated that the intention was to make a film for under INR1 billon.
“The film has not been made with the intention of crossing the INR1 billion mark. If that had been our intention, we would have been making at least one film a year. I take three years to make a film. If money was the intention, then every year we would have been making two films,” said Hirani.
Ferrari Ki Sawaari tells the story of a father who will go to any length to fulfill his son’s dream of becoming a cricketer. In the film, Sharman has a son and to make his little boy happy, he steals a Ferrari for an hour and the film is all about what happens next.
The actor has teamed up with Boman Irani in the film.
“I have worked with Boman earlier. He is a fabulous actor and a good human being. This is my third film with him. He is such a fine actor and it’s fun to work with him,” said the actor who was last seen with Boman in 3 Idiots.
Sharman also spoke about how he drove the Ferrari car while shooting the film.
“I drove the Ferrari many times at the risk of damaging it. I drove fast as well. We had a lot of fun with the car,” he said.
