Vidhu Vinod Chopra apologises for delays in his films
Filmmaker Vidhu Vinod Chopra, who is ready to release his next production Ferrari Ki Sawaari, says their films get delayed because they don't start the project unless they have a good story.
"We don't make a film unless we are sure that we have a good story. 'Ferrari ki Sawaari' took 4 years. The idea for the film first came when we were writing '3 Idiots'. So we worked almost 4 years on 'Ferrari...', dialogues alone took almost a year," the 55-year-old said here at the launch of a new song of "Ferrari ki Sawaari."
"When we make a film, we very proudly bring it to you. Be it 'Ferrari...' , 'Munnabhai' or 'Chitthiyan' or any other film. So writing a story consumes a lot of time for which we are extremely sorry but you know that we bring a good film," he added.
Directed by Rajesh Mapuskar, "Ferrari Ki Sawaari" stars Sharman Joshi and Boman Irani and is slated for a June 15 release.
Chopra revealed how the great comedian Charlie Chaplin inspired him to zero in on the title.
"We were writing the story around three years back, I had gone to America at that time. At Palm Spring I was living in a house where Charlie Chaplin used to live. There was a small stage in his house where he used to perform for his friends. That was a very inspiring house. I called Mapuskar from there and said I think I have the title and we have to thank Charlie Chaplin for it," he said.
