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.
