From posing for photographs to jogging in the lift to prepare for media interactions, Sharman Joshi and Rajesh Mapuskar are a fun duo. Oblivious of the presence of a reporter in the lift, they discuss even funnier ways of answering questions that will be put to them.
Talking about their film, director Mapuskar said working for Ferrari ki Sawarri was an absolutely joyous ride. According to Joshi, it was a once in a lifetime opportunity. He said, "Films like these are not made often. There was a lot to learn. The 80-85 days of the shoot and the preparation period were memorable. Whenever we got a break, the entire cast and crew would party."
On been asked about the risk involved in making a film with a children-centred theme, Mapuskar said in a Vidhu Vinod Chopra (VVC) film, you are not allowed to think about risks, losses, current trends or 'what's in'. You just write a script. If it's good and your heart approves of it, you go ahead and make the film.
When asked if being a father helped him in performing the role better, Joshi said he tried not to derive the character out of his personal life. "I follow the script like a bible and derive the mood and the emotions from the script and what it demands," the actor added.
Joshi said that it was a long ordeal to get selected for the film. There was an extensive process of several auditions to judge the physical aspect, the emotional quotient and other areas to match Rajesh ji's vision of the character.
Both Sharman and Mapuskar seem to love the film in its entirety. They were unable to pull out a particular favourite part in the film. "I like moments more than conversations. I like when he (SJ) washes the car or ties his shoelace. I like small things like the part when he stops at a red light and children come and surround the car," the director shared.
