    The film is scheduled for June 15, 2012 release.

He did two films — Toh Baat Pakki! and Allah Ke Banday — since his blockbuster hit, 3 Idiots in 2009, but both proved to be duds. Actor Sharman Joshi, who is now resurfacing with director Rajesh Mapuskar’s debut film, Ferrari Ki Sawaari, puts his heart out about the long impending wait.

"I went through all the emotions. It was frustrating, tiring, exhausting. Factors of fear came in. It had been about two-and-half years," the 33-year-old told us during his visit to the Capital recently.

"But you have to deal with them if you are committed to something. It requires patience. I was not willing to short sell myself. I was looking for the right kind of work that would excite me. Quality work takes time. I am not here to put out a barrage of movies," he added.

Perhaps the patience paid off as he got a solo return in his favourite producer, Vidhu Vinod Chopra's film. But Joshi reveals even that didn’t come easy. “I had to convince the director that I can pull of the role (of a single parent), as I don't look like a father at all. It was very challenging for me as an actor”.

Something thrilling that happened to him with the film was the chance to get behind the wheel of a Ferrari. And the quirky actor went on to bamboozle us by saying that he has "already placed the order for a Ferrari Modena 360". While we quickly put it to paper, he immediately stopped us and said, "Hey I was just kidding. Hope you don't mind? But maybe someday, I possibly will." And there we sat in denial, smiling at the cost of our headline.
