Ramesh Taurani enraged as Deepika Padukone walks out of RACE 2Deepika Padukone's last minute exit from Tips' ambitious thriller RACE 2 also starring Saif Ali Khan, John Abraham, Anil Kapoor, Ameesha Patel and Jacqueline Fernandez has left producer Ramesh Taurani miffed.
An upset Ramesh Taurani says, ''I have been a part of the Hindi cinema industry for 25 years. I have made several blockbusters. But I have never faced a situation like this before. Our directors and other actors are extremely annoyed with her. Tips as a company in its last 25 years has never had a dispute with anyone in this industry.''
Supposedly, after having completed a week of shooting, the actress backed out at the last minute as she was offered a Hollywood project. What left the producer even more upset is the fact that he was among the last to know about her decision.
Taurani claims, ''January 27, people kept calling me asking whether Deepika was out of RACE 2. I was clueless. I called her and asked her. She simply said that she would come to my office by 5 pm with her new manager to work out everything. At around 3 pm, she called to say that she wouldn't be able to come for the appointment. However, her manager would be present on her behalf. Finally, when the manager arrived, he simply told me that Deepika wouldn't be able to do our film. And that's because she is doing a major Hollywood project.''
