Deepika prefers Ranbir’s film, not Race 2
Deepika Padukone has been signed up to play opposite Saif Ali Khan in Race 2, but she seems to have decided opt out of the film as she prefers to co-star her ex-flame Ranbir Kapoor in Ayan Mukerji’s Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani (YJHD).
Abbas Mustan’s Race 2 stars Saif Ali Khan, John Abraham, Anil Kapoor and Sonakshi Sinha and all of them have given their dates for the shooting that has to take place between January 2012 and June 2012. Since dates are clashing with YJHD, Deepika is said to have coolly excused herself, making Ramesh Taurani producer of Race 2 livid with anger.
Deepika however is said to be firm on opting out of Race 2 and her replacement is hard to find at short notice of three months, as the dates for all top heroines are almost finalized for different films in 2012.
