After having shifted his gears from acting to filmmaking, Ashutosh Gowariker will yet again be seen as an actor in the Rajesh Mapuskar directed Ventilator. Buzz is that, it was actually Rajesh Mapuskar’s idea to cast Ashutosh Gowariker in Ventilator. Speaking about the same, Rajesh Mapuskar said that when he told Ashutosh Gowariker about acting in Ventilator, he couldn’t believe it at all and later said that he had no time to shoot as he was busy with Mohenjo Daro. And when Ashutosh Gowariker finally said yes, he was so energetic in front of the camera. He was popularly called as ‘Aamcha Ashu’ on the sets because of his extremely friendly nature towards everyone.
