Saif Ali Khan could not contain the joy of Kareena Kapoor joining him in the sequel to Race and spilled the beans.
Revealing he has convinced producers to rope in Abbas-Mustan again as directors and Kareena instead of Bipasha for the second innings of Race, Saif said the new Race would be larger than the previous one.
Well this news surely won"t go down well with Bipasha, the Bengali tigress, who has been written-off from the new Race. We hear Saif was so convinced about the Race magic that he went out of the way to convince the producers to hire Abbas-Mustan again as directors; applauding them for doing a wonderful job on a fast-paced thriller like Race.
Saif also shocked Bipasha by writing her off from the Race sequel in favour of his girlfriend Kareena Kapoor. Saif is hoping to make Race 2 bigger and better than the original thriller and has sidelined fuming Bipasha in the name of script demand.
This is not the first time Saif has miffed a reputed actress, his current co-star in Love Aaj Kal Deepika Padukone is also left fuming at Saif who goes on raving about Kareena in all his press meets and promotions for the film. This has irked Deepika to such an extent that she is telling media on how she was the original choice for Love Aaj Kal, and that she was offered the role by director Imtiaz Ali before Om Shanti Om happened.
By the way, looking at the rate at which Chote Nawab is vexing his leading ladies, we feel it won"t be long before he is left with no one else but beloved Kareena to work with.
