“Ferrari ki Sawari” is an affectionate story of an unconditional love between a father, acted by Sharman Joshi and his son. It is about the young boy’s dream to play cricket at the coveted Lords stadium.
Fetching his first solo cast was not a cake walk for Sharman, as he had to work hard on various aspects, from putting on weight for his character of a Parsi father to getting the nuances right.
“I did 30-40 auditions and worked on emotional quotient, physical aspect and attributes of the character, so that my dialogues and all come out shinning. I passed a lot of time with Parsi community. All this took some doing and thankfully I got hold of it correctly and I was awarded with this role,” the actor said.
We tried many permutations and combinations. We needed a paunch, so for that I gained weight. We worked on all small things,” he said. “In case of physical aspects, like Parsis have sharp nose, thankfully I have a sharp nose, so I did not have much of a problem. Then we had to work on hair and used spectacles.
“I have to like and love it and give it all that is required. For this movie, it was all the more challenging and exciting. I think I have pulled it (my role) off well. It became a satisfying experience for me,” he added.
“Quality films and great cinema is what I believe in. Numbers will then reflect. I don’t want to be part of films which are designed to appeal at the box office first. It should be like they are designed to be great films and they happen to work at box office,” he said. “And when the numbers do the talking it will give me some commercial standing, which will be stronger than what I am today,” he said.
During his 13-year-old career, Sharman has acted only in 15 films and he insists that it is because he wants to do quality work.
Thrilled about his first solo film as a hero in 13 years of his career, actor Sharman Joshi says “Ferrari ki Sawari” will change his standing in the film industry and he would get more and better work in future.
