I don`t care about audience expectations: Sharman Joshi
Singapore: ‘Ferrari Ki Sawari’ is his first solo film and actor Sharman Joshi, who has mostly been a part of multi-starrers, says he is not bothered by audience`s expectations from him.
The 33-year-old actor, who has starred in films like `Rang de Basanti` and `3 Idiots`, is making his debut as a solo lead in his 13 year long career with `Ferrari`.
When asked whether he thinks he can live up to audience`s expectations, Sharman said, "I don`t care. The audience has the choice not to care and likewise do I. I do my work with complete faith and belief.
"There are several parts I have played over the years and it`s very important for me to enjoy what I do. This is my first film as a solo lead and I am extremely proud of it. I am sure the audience will like it and appreciate that such a film has been made in our country, thanks to Vidhu Vinod Chopra and Rajesh Mapuskar."
Sharman went through 30-40 auditions for the film before he landed the role.
"The fact that I loved the script and that I wanted to work with Vidhu Vinod Chopra productions where I knew that quality would be ensured, made me work hard for it. I feel privileged to work in the film. 30-40 auditions is not a big deal," he said.
The film shows Sharman as a middle class man striving to fulfil his son`s dreams. Having played closer to life roles in "Ferrari" and his previous film `3 Idiots`, Sharman says his next will see him a different avatar.
"I am here for the long haul, for at least 30-40 years and I want to do films in various genres. Common man is how you see me right now, next you`ll see me in a different avatar," he said.
