Deepika has been the original choice of the makers and they are very glad they have her finally.
A source says, “After Katrina Kaif’s sizzling chemistry in Race, the producers and directors were keen to take the sizzle quotient to the next level in the sequel. And Deepika has that oomph and sex appeal to take that chemistry a couple of notches ahead.”
Siting date issues, Deepy opted out of Race 2. However, the dates are sorted out and DP has confirmed her presence in the film, herself. She is being paid a huge fee, too.
Now, with Deepika being a part of the film, she will be acting opposite Saif Ali Khan, marking this as her forth film with the actor.
Deepika tweets, “And the ‘RACE’ begins…”. She has started shooting for the flick already. The movie hit theaters late next year.
