Priyanka may takeover Deepika’s role in Race 2

 The ‘Roma’ of Shahrukh Khan starrer ‘Don 2’ may soon be seen sizzling up the silver screen in a new spicy avatar as she gears up to run the ‘Race 2’ marathon. Buzz is rife that dusky hot actress Priyanka Chopra may be the new female face of ‘Race 2’ after Deepika Padukone walked out of the project.

The sequel to the hit thriller ‘Race’, this Ramesh Taurani flick is a much awaited movie of the year and promises action, thrill and lots of steaminess. Leggy Deepika was the first choice for the female protagonist but owing to her date problems, she had to quit. And Priyanka seems to be the next best replacement.

Reportedly, the film maker has already knocked at the doors of Piggy Chops and is awaiting a response. The only question still unanswered is that if Priyanka will answer the knock with a smile or will she refuse to accept the offer. But a leading tabloid reports that Priyanka is keen to play the lead actress since she seems pretty smitten with the script.

However, this is not the first time that Priyanka has been offered the role. Even a few months back in October, 11, Priyanka was being eyed by Taurani since Deepika was skeptical about her availability. Her dates were clashing with those of another film that she has signed (by director Ayaan Mukherjee) and she was giving priority to Ayaan’s film. But things dramatically normalized themselves in the last minute and Dippy stayed back with ‘Race 2’ team. That was the closest Priyanka came to being finalized for the film. But it was not to be so.

But, now, with Deepika finally saying a ‘goodbye’, Priyanka has been approached again and the ‘Krrish 3’ lady may just crawl onto the ‘Race 2’ bandwagon….That will certainly hot things up a bit……All is well that ends well….
