The heroine issues of the multi-starrer are far from over. Ever since Deepika Padukone walked out of the project midway citing date issues, the sequel has been dogged by controversies.
Ramesh Taurani, Producer of the action thriller, annoyed by Deepika's unprofessional behavior filed a complaint against her in AMPTPP (Association of Motion Pictures & T.V. Programme Producers) and CINTAA (Cine & TV Artistes Association).
Realizing that the heavy monetary damages slapped at her might turn out to be too steep, Deepika made peace with the filmmaker. After lengthy discussions with Taurani, the leggy lass decided to re-enter 'Race 2' with a few terms and conditions.
Nargis offered 'Race 2'
While the dust has barely settled on the spat between Deepika and Taurani, Rockstar’s leading lady, Nargis Fakhri has been embroiled into the controversy.
Trade circles are abuzz with rumors that the British model ruling the popularity charts after the stupendous success of her debut movie has been approached to play the role.
A source stated, “On Friday afternoon Nargis met Ramesh in his office. She was under the impression that they would talk about some other project but when she realised that it was Deepika’s role that was being offered to her, she backed out immediately, saying she has just started off in Bollywood and doesn’t want to get involved in any kind of controversy.”
Meanwhile, the sexy actress has opted to play it safe at the onset of her career. She has reportedly turned down the offer to star in the mega project.
“A high-profile multi-starrer like Race 2 would have been a wise move for a newcomer like Nargis, but full marks to her for sticking to her own rules,” the source added.
