'Race 2' all-set to take the audiences for a mind-blowing ride

Race 2” is a much-awaited film of the duo Abbas-Mustan. They have been noted directors who have to their credit films like “Baazigar” and “Ajnabee”.

“Race 2” is the sequel to 2008 release “Race”. Saif Ali Khan and Anil Kapoor have been retained from the original cast. John Abraham, Deepika Padukone, Jacqueline Fernandes and Ameesha Patel have been added in “Race 2”.

“Race” had been a huge success when it released. The mind-boggling twists and turns ensured that the suspense was on till the end. “Race 2” is a high-paced action thriller like the first installment only that it promises to be meaner, edgier and better than the original. Its songs have been doing really well and have appeased to the youth.

Saif Ali Khan who has been part of both the films spoke about this film at length. He said, “Race 2 starts almost where the Race 1 ends. It drives out of one frame and drives into other frame. It is not important for you to see Race 1 to enjoy the second part. It is my first sequel. We were fortunate that Bipasha, Katrina, Akshaye Khanna, Anilji were in part one of Race. But Race 2 is a different film and required different set of actors and I am happy to work with all of them. I am sure with the kind of story line it has, the audience will like it.”

“Race” had some steamy scenes in the film. “Race 2” on the other hand, will be providing more of glamour and action. Saif said “I think Race 1 was brave film though it had crazy plot points and twists and turns. It was an adult film, it had lot of intimate scenes... It was a bold film for the Indian audience". He also added, “The makers thought to have a sequel and wanted a universal film... So, we have U/A certificate this time because of better action and glamour. You can watch this film (Race 2) with mother and sister. It is a universal thriller film".

Bipasha Basu will be seen reprising her role of Sonia in the sequel. However, she will be seen doing a cameo in this film. “Race 2” is extensively shot in Istanbul and Mumbai. Its background score has been composed by Salim-Sulaiman whereas the music has been rendered by Pritam. “Race 2” is all set to hit the screens on the 25th of January. With this top-end star cast the film is sure to become a hit.
