After Kareena Kapoor was chosen over Katrina Kaif and Bipasha Basu to star opposite Saif Ali Khan and Anil Kapoor, for the sequel of Race, news has it that Priyanka Chopra would join the team soon. Talking about the absence of Katrina and Bipasha in the sequel, a source says, “Katrina’s absence was almost certain because her character in Race dies, but Bipasha’s absence is certainly surprising.”
A close friend of Priyanka’s confirms, “Priyanka still has to complete Saat Khoon Maaf. She will then move on to Don 2 and the TV Series Fear Factor 3. But she is excited about the character she’ll play in Race 2 and is working out her dates for the project.”
According to sources, Producer Ramesh Taurani and directors Abbas-Mustan plan to pool in all their resources to make the sequel a far slicker and sexier version of the first one. When contacted though, Ramesh Taurani denied this.
