Deepika Padukone has found herself in a deep mess, thanks to her decision to back out from Ramesh Taurani's Race 2.
In an interview with Times of India, Ramesh Taurani said that he was very hurt in the manner in which Deepika tackled the situation as no actor had treated him with such disrespect till date.
Ramesh Taurani feels he was wronged as Deepika Padukone's dates for Race 2 was fixed keeping her interest in mind. As Deepika was keen on working in Karan Johar's film Yeh Jawaani Hai Diwani opposite Ranbir Kapoor, Ramesh along with Johar made the schedule in such a way that she could shoot for both films.
In spite of that, Ramesh alleges that Deepika kept avoiding the shoots on one pretext or the other. On January 27th, Deepika, who was supposed to meet Ramesh Taurani, sent him an SMS stating that though she wouldn't be able to meet him, her manager would see and discuss all matter with him.
After Deepika's manager explained to Taurani that Deepika couldn't act in Race 2, since she is getting better offers even from Hollywood, the filmmaker tried several times to reach out to the actress. However, Deepika refused to answer the innumerable messages and phone calls made by Taurani.
It was only then that Ramesh Taurani approached the AMPTPP and CINTAA.
