After months of speculation on who will be playing the lead role in Vidhu Vinod Chopra's next big production Ferrari Ki Sawaari, the verdict is now finally out and its none other than Sharman Joshi who has bagged the coveted lead role.
Sharman, it may be recalled, played an important part in Vidhu's last production 3 Idiots which went on to become an all-time blockbuster. Industry buzz is that Vidhu Vinod Chopra has taken a bold decision by going ahead with Sharman for the lead role but the maverick filmmaker believes he has made the right choice.
Says Vidhu Vinod Chopra, "We have seen the screen test of Sharman Joshi, and strongly feel that he has understood the character and done a brilliant job in the screen test."
Ferrari Ki Sawaari is certainly a big solo project for Sharman Joshi who has until now mainly made a mark only in multi-starrers. The film, which goes on floors in February 2011, is being directed by debutant director Rajesh Mapuskar (who has assisted the likes of Raju Hirani).
