Yami Gautam roped in for ‘Race 3’? Actress shoots down claims

Reports claimed that actress Yami Gautam has been roped in for ‘Race 3’ by the makers of the hit franchise. The previous two instalments of the thriller series have features top actresses like Bipasha Basu, Deepika Padukone, Katrina Kaif and also Jacqueline Fernandez.

However, the ‘Junooniyat’ actress has shot down the claims saying that she will not talk about the films that her offered to her and that it is the “producer's prerogative” to announce the news when a project is signed.

“I am surprised at so many casting stories that are appearing. I have never spoken or will speak on films that I have been approached for. It is producer's privilege and prerogative to announce the news when a project is signed,” Yami said in a statement. 

Yami is currently shooting for ‘Kaabil’ opposite Hrithik Roshan and said that she is only focusing on the film being directed by Sanjay Gupta and produced by Rakesh Roshan.

A third instalment of the ‘Race’ franchise is in the pipeline and as per reports, Saif Ali Khan, who was a part of the first two films will not be starring in ‘Race 3’.

A source close to Yami had been quoted as saying, "The producers have already been in talks with Yami and they are keen on having her on board. They are waiting for Yami's confirmation now."

However, Ramesh Taurani of Tips Industries Limited, the production company of the series, refused to comment on the star cast by saying, "I am still working on the script and the cast is yet to be decided."

Reportedly, the makers are looking to cast fresh faces for ‘Race 3’.
