Sonakshi might replace Deepika in 'Race 2'
Abbas-Mustan's Race 2 is in a quandary. Deepika Padukone, was reportedly asked by Karan Johar and Ayan Mukerji to choose between their Yeh Jaawani Hai Deewani and Race 2. She now wants to quit the Saif Ali Khan-John Abraham starrer.
Although producer Kumar Taurani tweeted that Deepika is still trying to work out her dates, since Ranbir Kapoor works only on one film at a time, Deepika may be required to do the same between the months of January and April 2012.
Insiders say that Dippy, who doesn't wish to disappoint Taurani, is trying to allot the Race 2 producers fresh dates, May 2012 onwards. This delay may cost the project dearly because many stars' call sheets are involved.
Pinkvilla was the first to tell you that Bipasha Basu might star in Race 2. Now that Deepika has opted out of Race 2 & Sonakshi is replacing her, Bipasha Basu might well reprise her role as Sonia in the sequel.
Also, John Abraham recently claimed that he has no problem working with his ex-girlfriend Bipasha Basu.
