Vidhu Vinod Chopra pays Rs 5 lakh for sweet limes

Mumbai: We have heard of filmmakers spending loads of money on sets, costumes and marketing; but the makers of Sharman Joshi-starer `Ferrari Ki Sawaari` recently spent Rs five lakh on a fruit.

A song in the yet-to-be released film `Ferrari Ki Sawaari` compares life to `mausambi` (sweet lime).

According to sources, the song was being shot in Mumbai during the fruit`s off-season. So it was quite a task for the production team to procure it.

They managed to arrange for Mausambi from a wholesaler, but it cost them Rs 5 Lakh

The film, directed by Rajkumar Hirani`s assistant Rajesh Mapukar, stars Boman Irani too.

"We were shooting for this song in Mumbai and we were told that because of the off-season there aren`t enough fruits available for the scene....After a lot of struggle and a huge amount we managed tons of mausambis for the song sequence," Mapukar said.

Produced by Vinod Chopra Productions, `Ferrari Ki Sawaari` is about a young father`s endeavour to fulfil his son`s dream.

The film is scheduled to be released on December 23 this year.
