The actress has confirmed that she has opted out of Race 2 due to date issues. The delay in the shooting clashed her dates with Dabangg 2 and she could not accommodate both the films. Sonakshi Sinha is disappointed for not being part of Abbas-Mustan's movie, which stars Saif Ali Khan, John Abraham, Anil Kapoor, Deepika Padukone, Jacqueline Fernandez, and Ameesha Patel.
However, Salman Khan and Sonakshi Sinha starrer Dabangg 2 will take off in March 2012. Arbaaz Khan, who had produced the first instalment, has taken the responsibility of directing the forthcoming Bollywood film after director of the first version, Abhinav Kashyap walked out of the film.
While Race is expected to hit the screens in November 2012, Dabangg 2 will release in December 2012.
