What is the real reason behind Deepika Padukone walking out of ‘Race 2’?
The latest whispers have a lot to say about the actor’s decision to opt out of the Abbas-Mustan film
Okay, so all of you know that Deepika Padukone has backed out of Race 2 after shooting for it for six days. Why? Producer Ramesh Taurani’s version: She wanted to give her Race 2 dates to a Hollywood project. Deepika’s version: Taurani and Race 2 directors Abbas and Mustan changed the dates they needed from her several times and it was finally impossible for her to juggle her dates again. She is already doing Karan Johar’s film and Rajinikanth’s Kochadaiyaan. In fact, Kochadaiyaan is another sore point for those involved in this drama, since Dippy agreed to do the film even though she stopped shooting for Race 2 after citing date issues. Where did she get the dates now, ask her detractors.
However, we heard from our spies that the actual reason for Deepika backing out of Race 2 has nothing to do with dates or Kochadaiyaan. Click here to read more

PLAYERS quick movie review: Abhishek, Bipasha and Sonam are bad!
Abhishek Bachchan’s run of bad luck seems to continue. It looks as if even Abbas-Mustan are unable to break the jinx. Our reviewer who is watching Players right now texted us during the interval to say, “So far Charlie’s (Abhishek Bachchan) train is running on the main track with no major turns. One player has turned hostile. The robbery has been pulled off. Abhishek is okay, Bipasha (Basu) is sizzling hot and Sonam (Kapoor) has shown her middle finger. Certain scenes are watchable. The best part is the camera work. Music is flat, acting is bad.” Uh oh. But Abhishek’s fans, don’t worry. If you remember, even Race had initially received a lukewarm response but went on to become a huge hit. Most thrillers are made or broken in the second half. Let’s wait to see how Players’ second half turns out. Abbas and Mustan are known for bringing in unexpected twists in the end, and we won’t be surprised if they have one in this film too. Our full review is coming up soon so do watch this space!
