Sharman Joshi to play the lead in 'Ferrari Ki Sawaari'

"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," said Chopra.
Sources close to the filmmaker described the decision to go with Joshi in the lead as "bold".

"In the past, he decided to produce 'Parineeta' with Saif. Vinod decided to give Saif the chance to play a lead role, when no one else in the industry was ready to take such a risk and he was only doing ensemble films. Vinod gave Saif his solo hero project," sources said.

Chopra has also done the same with Sanjay Dutt during the Munnabhai series, sources added.

According to them, Chopra has this time decided to place his bet on Sharman, placing his trust in the 31-year-old actor and picked him from the ensemble film '3 Idiots'.

'Ferrari Ki Sawaari' goes on floors in February. The film is directed by Rajesh Mhapuskar who was the associate director of Rajkumar Hirani for '3 Idiots'.

The female lead is yet to be finalised. Earlier, there were speculations that legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar was also part of the cast. But sources close to Chopra said these were mere speculations.
