The principal star cast of ‘Race 2’,the sequel to the smash hit ‘Race’,is finally in place. The makers of ‘Race’ — producer Ramesh Taurani and director duo Abbas-Mustan — have confirmed Anil Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan from the first part,while John Abraham will join the star cast of the sequel. Reportedly,he will be the antagonist in the sequel. In the past,John had enacted negative roles in ‘Aetbaar’,’Dhoom’,’Zinda’ and ‘New York’ and had left a strong impression in each of those roles.
There’s talk that Abbas-Mustan are keen to cast arch rivals Kareena Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra in the sequel,but producer Ramesh Taurani denies it. “We haven’t finalized the leading ladies yet. It’s speculation,” he states. Taurani also adds that Katrina Kaif and Bipasha Basu,who had enacted pivotal parts in ‘Race’,wouldn’t feature in the sequel,which is expected to roll early next year.
