race 2 casting

1 Jan

After the success of Race (2008), Ramesh Taurani registered Race 2 as a title and Abbas-Mustan said that they would go ahead with a sequel “if we get a script in place which is even better than the original.”[2] The screenplay was written by Shiraz Ahmed who also wrote RaceSaif Ali Khan and Anil Kapoor were the first to sign on to the film in November 2009 and were reported to be the only returning cast members from the first film.[3] In June 2010, John Abraham was signed on to play the antagonist and Kareena Kapoor and Priyanka Choprawere approached to co-star opposite Khan and Abraham respectively.[4][5] However, Kapoor turned down the role as she didn’t want her pairing with Khan to get repetitive and Chopra opted out due to scheduling conflicts and was subsequently replaced by Padukone.[6] In December 2010, Sonakshi Sinha was cast as a replacement for Kapoor.[7] Chitrangda Singh was approached for a role opposite Anil Kapoor in May 2011 but eventually dropped out for unspecified reasons.[8] Ameesha Patel and Mallika Sherawat were considered for that same role but it ultimately went to Patel.[9][10]

“The expectations from Race 2 are humongous and we plan to make it bigger and better than the first part.”

—Taurani on Race 2[11]

The film’s shooting was set to begin on 5 October 2011 but was postponed to accommodate Deepika Padukone’s dates causing scheduling conflicts with Sonakshi Sinha.[12] Sinha’s dates conflicted with her filming schedule for Dabangg 2 (2012), forcing her to drop out. In October 2011, Jacqueline Fernandez who had opted out Krrish 3 & Raaz 3 was cast as a replacement for Sinha.[13] Shortly afterwards, it was announced that Bipasha Basu would be reprising her role as Sonia in a cameo appearance, and continuing to be Khan’s girlfriend. Despite rumours suggesting that Basu will be sharing screen space with ex-boyfriend John Abraham for the first time after their breakup, Abraham denied this.Image

A picture is worth 1000 words. This safe has been through a lot. Tell its story. Image credit: “safe” – © 2007 Paul Keller – made available under Attribution 2.0 GenericVivaan (Rajeev Khandelwal) and Siya Agasthi (Tena Desae), like any other ordinary couple, that are working their way to make ends meet can’t believe their luck when they win a chance to make a trip to the beautiful islands of Fiji. Not only is this holiday fully paid for, with their stay at one of the finest hotels, but they also get invited to dine at Suva, Fiji’s finest resorts on occasion of their wedding anniversary. Fate however, has a different plan for them, when at the resort; they encounter the charming Mr. Khan (Paresh Rawal). Their luck gets only better when Mr. Khan offers to give the couple a staggering 21 crores, provided they play and win the ‘tell all truth’ game that he hosts. 8 questions, truthful answers and completion of tasks – the rules of the game seem pretty straightforward. Realizing how an amount so large could potentially change their lives forever, Vivaan and Siya decide to take up the challenge. The game kick starts with the couple performing impressively well, managing to both speak the truth as well as complete the tasks thrown at them. As the game proceeds, the questions and tasks become more intense, demanding and surprisingly personal, relating to significant parts of their lives. Vivaan and Siya are stuck in a rut, as one important rule that they’re reminded of is that they aren’t allowed to quit midway. By the time they realize that their survival depends on the game, it’s too late to do anything about it. Will Vivaan and Siya be able to figure out who Mr. Khan really is and beat him at his own game? [1][2]ImageImagetable
