Producer Ramesh Taurani and director duo Abbas-Mustan have finally
locked the star cast of the much-awaited sequel to RACE.
"The casting has to be perfect, once the script is okayed. The
expectations from RACE 2 are humungous and we plan to make
it bigger and better than the first part," Abbas-Mustan had
remarked quite some time back.
Well, the casting of RACE 2 is almost complete. While
Saif Ali Khan and Anil Kapoor have been retained from the first
part, the makers have signed John Abraham to enact the negative
role in the sequel to the successful film. Rumors are rife that
Abhishek Bachchan will also appear in a significant role, although
his presence in the film is being kept under wraps. "Not true at
all! Abhishek isn't part of the film," the producer clarifies.
The leading ladies will be different as well. "Deepika Padukone
and Sonakshi Sinha have been confirmed. We need to finalize one
more leading lady opposite Anil," he divulges. Filming of RACE
2 begins in August this year.
