Priyanka Chopra replaces Deepika Padukone in ‘Race 2′

Race 2 filmmakers breathe a sigh of relief as they finally get a replacement after the Aarakshan actor opted out

The story that Deepika Padukone walked out of Race 2 to do Yeh Jawani Hain Diwani with Ranbir Kapoor and Ayan Mukherjee is abuzz in the Bollywood circuit. However, Race 2 producer Ramesh Taurani tweeted it was a false rumour. He insisted that the leggy lady was still a part of the Abbas-Mastan film also starring Saif Ali Khan, John Abraham, Anil Kapoor and Sonakshi Sinha. But his worst fears came true. Apparently, Deepika couldn’t work out her dates and they desperately began looking for a new leading lady. They went back knocking on Priyanka Chopra’s door who was the first choice to play the role. Initially, when Race 2 sequel was being finalised the producer had spoken to Piggy Chops, but she was busy with Don 2 and turned down the offer. A year later and the filmmakers have landed in the same situation and are just a month away from the shoot. As per a source close to the filmmaker, this time Priyanka is seriously considering Race 2 and working out her dates to accommodate the film. Wethink Dippy preferring to do a film with Ranbir Kapoor over the thriller is a good decision. On the other hand, it will also be great to watch PC join the boys for some thrilling action.

    King khan’s success is rinidg high on these days.Particularly 2007 was very good for him.We used to see SRK as a leading actor in movies but now we r also getting a chance to see him as a supporting character.I do believe he will take all the appreciation from that movie.East or west Shaharukh is the best.
