Yet it is precisely his passion for knowledge and his gift for creating machines that incurs the wrath of Professor Viru Sahastrabudhhe (ViruS) (Boman Irani). Threatened by Rancho’s talent, ViruS labels him an “idiot” and attempts on a number of occasions to destroy his friendship with Farhan and Raju.
