As Ferrari Ki Sawaari gets canned on real locations around south Mumbai, producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra has come up with a unique idea to hide the identity of one of the main characters — a young boy.

As a result, he has banned cell phones as well as cameras on the sets. “There is only an official videographer and photographer present on the sets. He doesn’t want any picture of the boy to leak before the first trailer comes out,” says a source from the sets.

Directed by Rajesh Mapuskar, Ferrari Ki Sawaari will see the boy play Sharman Joshi’s son. In fact, even the school from which the kid was selected is also unaware of him acting in the film. Interestingly, a couple of other extra boys are also present on the sets to ensure the identity of the boy is not revealed.


Chopra and his casting team of Ferrari Ki Sawaari auditioned for the kid across 10,000 schools throughout the country. Although makers are tightlipped about it, the official spokesperson of the film contends: “Yes, Vinod is keen to hide Sharman and the young boy’s looks till the first theatrical comes out.”
