Director Rajesh Mapuskar’s Ferrari Ki Saawari is expected to come across as a surprise to the audiences. Mapuskar, who is known as Rajkumar Hirnai’s prodigy, was recently heard saying that he prefers being true to the script.

And buzz is that makers of Ferrari Ki Sawari have tried to capture Mumbai with its ancient feel. The cast and the crew left no stone unturned to shoot a city that was slow, clean and scarcely populated like in the olden days.

And it doesn’t end here. Sharman Joshi starrer Ferrari…. has also captured the mood of the loud, colourful and the vibrant city as it is today. To aid this scenario, the team chose shoot at authentic venues and are believed to have included landmarks like the High Court and the University.

The cast and crew put in painstaking efforts while shooting at the real locations, on roads among the actual crowd that gathered around the set up.

Though Ferrari Ki Sawari has tried to do a balancing act by showing the old and the new Mumbai as per the pace of the film, it will hopefully make people nostalgic of simple yet glamorous Bombay that many of us have forgotten.
