MUMBAI: That ‘Race 2’ is a mere 5 days away from its theatrical release, is by now common knowledge to all. That the film is a multi-starry extravaganza of hot bodies, and that it is an Abbas-Mustan fast-paced action thriller, is also known. What’s not known is how ‘racy’ or steamy the film will turn out to be, with sexy sirens like Deepika Padukone and Jacqueline Fernandez present to hot things up!
Going by the first installment, we’re sure the film will live up to the action-thriller-romance-music bounty that was ‘Race’. Bipasha had scorched the screens with her bold scenes with the ‘Nawab of Pataudi’ aka Saif Ali Khan in ‘Race’. SO it is but natural we have come to expect the same from ‘Race 2’.
We caught up with the entire starry cast at PVR, where the team showed up for a press meet for ‘Race 2’. On stage were handsome hunks Saif Ali Khan, John Abraham and giving them tough competition in the fitness department, Anil ‘Jhakaas’ Kapoor. The lovely ladies Deepika Padukone, Jacqueline Fernandez and Ameesha Patel were there as well, cheering on their heroes. Ramesh Taurani (of Tips) accompanied director-duo Abbas Mustan, as the crew surmised about all things racy and ‘Race 2’.
A little birdie recently revealed to us that Saif isn’t quite comfortable with his new title yet, and is getting accustomed to being addressed as ‘Nawab’. The 42-year-old actor was awarded the honorary title of the 10th Nawab of Pataudi in 2011, after the demise of his father Mansoor Ali Khan.
Said Saif, of his reluctance to accept the title completely: “Nawab of Pataudi just reminds me of my father and somehow does not sound right in reference to me. I do take it seriously but I don’t really believe in titles. We are a democratic country and the time for such titles is gone. I don’t think it suits a film actor.” But we’re 100% sure his wife; Kareena Kapoor Khan has suitably fit into the role of the ‘Begum of Pataudi’!
