New Delhi:

Master blaster Sachin Tendulkar may soon be making a Bollywood debut in Vidhu Vinod Chopra's Ferrari Ki Sawari, a film to be directed by Rajesh Mapuskar.

According to a Hindustan Times report, Sachin will act alongside actor Sharman Joshi and Boman Irani. Producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra, however, is not ready to disclose any detail about Sachin's role.

Few months back, Sachin had tweeted, "Vinod Chopra has a script called Ferrari Ki Sawari. Just heard it. Sounds awesome." In yet another tweet, which he posted with a picture of him and Chopra, he had said, "Hanging with Vinod Chopra and Atul Kasbekar... 3 more Idiots?"

Chopra and Mapuskar are writing the script, while Raj Kumar Hirani will write the dialogues.

The story of the film reportedly is revolves around a boy who is inspired by a cricket legend's Ferrari to play at the Lord's cricket ground. It must be noticed that Sachin the only cricketer in India who owns a Ferarri.

Two years back, Sachin had shot for a documentary on Mumbai's Siddhivinayak temple, in which he spoke how he felt when he visited the temple.

Prior to Sachin, many other cricketers - Vinod Kambli, Ajay Jadeja, Salil Ankola, Sunil Gavaskar and Sandeep Patil - tried their luck on the silver screen but achieved little success. Will Sachin change that equation?
