"I never dreamt of making a film. I love music and art and this (film) is the amalgamation of it," Mapuskar told IANS. "It was a fun, joyride.
There was no pressure from anyone. It was all from me. It was my first film so obviously you will have butterflies in the stomach. I was worried as to how I will do it but I had a great team to support me.
All the worries just vanished when we started shooting," he added. Produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra, "Ferrari Ki Sawaari" is Sharman Joshi's first solo hero film.
"It was great to work with an actor like Sharman. He is a professional and natural actor. He really understands what a maker is trying to convey through the scene and the movie," said Mapuskar who worked in "3 Idiots" as an assistant director.
"He is sharp, fast and he is a great actor. He has been brought up very well. All this shows in his performance. He comes from a very cultured, good family," he added.
Releasing June 15, the film is written by Chopra who has centred the story on a father-son and how a Ferrari brings ups and downs in their lives in a funny manner.
