Will Deepika Padukone’s presence in ‘Race 2′ help or hurt the film?
After shooting for Ramesh Taurani’s upcoming Race 2 Deepika Padukone chose to walk out of the project claiming that it had wasted her dates and the schedule was being overstretched. Taurani, on the other hand, claimed that Deepika shunned the film with the excuse of working in a Hollywood project and deceived the producer by signing on for Rajnikath’s mega-movie Kochadaiyan. The producer therefore filed a complaint with CINTAA (Cine and TV Artist Association) against Deepika saying that the actor was causing heavy losses to the production by her walkout. Dippy has already shot a few scenes with Sanjay Dutt and Saif Ali Khan and those would have to be re-filmed if the producer opted for a replacement. Keeping the urgency of the issue in mind and the time being wasted over the controversy, CINTAA arranged a meeting to resolve the issue.
As a result, Deepika has been asked to adjust her dates to fit Taurani’s film in to her schedule. The association has asked the warring parties to revert with their respective solutions. But, much to the dismay of the other Race 2 actors, both Taurani and Deepika refused to mellow and that has sparked off a heated debate. When Deepika tried to defuse the situation by hugging Taurani, we learned that the producer did not reciprocate too warmly since he was mighty upset with Deepika’s unprofessional behaviour. Now even if Taurani gets a new lead actor, it’s not a win-win situation for the producer because he will have to start from scratch to redo scenes already shot. For Deepika, the damages Taurani may ask her to cough up would be very high. Hence the compromise....being a human...
