02-17-2012, 11:39 PM #1
After a day of furious negotiations, the actress lays down her conditions for coming back to the film she had walked out of
She opted out of the film and left her producer fuming. She had to face her co-stars’ ire at a recent party. And after going through all the trouble, Deepika Padukone has finally decided to get back on board for Ramesh Taurani’s Race 2. However, the actress has her set of conditions.
According to industry insiders, after meeting producer Taurani, Deepika realised that it wouldn’t be in her best interest to contest the filmmaker on monetary grounds. The damages that Taurani claimed he would ask from the actress might be too high for Dippy,
Though the official CINTAA (Cine and TV Artistes’ Association) meeting was called off 30 minutes before its scheduled time on Wednesday, the actress did end up meeting CINTAA general secretary Dharmesh Tiwari. According to a source present at the meeting, it was Tiwari who asked Deepika to stay away from monetary hassles and allot dates to Taurani.
When contacted, Tiwari said, “There is no final settlement yet. Deepika has spoken to me. I met her on Wednesday. But yes, we expect this fight to end in the next 48 hours.”
Deepika, however, has given a list of conditions to Taurani. “Deepika has five points of concern. If the producers of Race 2 are interested in having her back on board, they will have to look into the conditions. Now the ball is in their court,” said a friend of the actress.
1. Dates can't change
Deepika, who will be busy with her other projects Rajinikanth's Kochadaiyaan and Ranbir Kapoor starrer Jawaani Diwani, will not allot fresh dates to Race 2.
2. Direct communication
She has requested the producer Ramesh Taurani and directors Abbas-Mustan to not work with middlemen.
3. No interference in personal care
Deepika will only work with her chosen set of designers, hair stylist and makeup artist.
4. Right to decide release date
The actress wants the filmmakers to consult her for the release of Race 2. This is because she wants no misunderstandings during the promotional phase of the film.
5. Information on overseas shoot
In case of a foreign schedule, the actress wants to be informed a month in advance.
