Just a week back, the action packed sequel to the film Race was in the news for the shift in its production date to accommodate leading lady Deepika Padukone in the film. Well, the film which was initially supposed to star Sonakshi Sinha along with Deepika has undergone yet another change in the casting department.
The latest is that the Sri Lankan beauty Jacqueline Fernandez will be seen replacing Sonakshi in Race 2. Speaking to Ramesh Taurani, we are told, “Yes, Jacqueline has been roped in to replace Sonakshi, as there were some date problems. In fact, we had postponed the film earlier and hence Sonakshi had date problems as they were clashing with her shoot dates for Dabanng 2. Besides we think that Jacqueline will be perfect for the role and also the fact remains that she is a good actress.”
About the film being altered to suit Jacqueline, Taurani says, “No, we haven’t done any such changes to suit Jacqueline, the film and the script remain the same as before. We will commence shooting in the first week on November and are looking to release the film in November 2012.”
