Longer Wait for ‘Race 2’

It’s been quite some time that we saw Bollywood’s Chote Nawab in action. Saif Ali Khan seems pretty engrossed with his home production Agent Vinod with sweetheart Kareena Kapoor. The superstar has huge expectation from his production debut. However it also seems that other projects of the Khan are being pushed forth now and again.

There is one particular project which has been quite expected to release for quite some time now. The sequel to the movie ‘Race’, ‘Race 2’, an action packed thriller is on the waitlist for quite some time now. The action packed thriller had created quite an impact on the boxoffice and thus a lot is expected from the movie this time.

However, news just came in that the release of ‘Race 2’ has been delayed from the scheduled release date. The movie was originally set to cast Saif Ali Khan, Deepika Padukone and Sonakshi Sinha has been ever since going through a lot of changes. The rumours have it all changes, changes and yet more changes.

The latest has it that the movie which was supposed to be releasing in May 2012 has been now pushed back to a much later date. In addition sources also said that Bollywood sensation Priyanka Chopra is now being considered for the movie.

The producer Ramesh Taurani is quite apprehensive about the rumours however and gave out a statement stating that, “Yes, there were some changes that were made, but the whole aspect of Priyanka being in the film isn’t true. In fact, we have pushed the dates of the film to accommodate Deepika’s dates.” Also when queries related to changes in Deepika’s remuneration were raised, the producer had a direct answer, “There is nothing like that, we have only changed the dates and nothing else.”

However the producer made us aware of another change which it seems is not a rumour. Due to the changes in shooting dates now Sonakshi Sinha might have to opt out of the movie as her dates are pre-booked for the shoot of Salman starrer ‘Dabangg 2’. Taurani said that as of now the actress was part of the movie but if the date issue wasn’t resolved then there might be a change. The producer however made it quite clear that they are trying their best to handle the situation.
