Ameesha in Race sequel in a sexy avatar
Tushar Joshi (BOMBAY TIMES; August 11, 2011)
Ameesha Patel will be seen in her sexiest avatar yet in Ramesh Taurani’s Race 2, the sequel to 2008’s runaway hit. The film’s cast includes Deepika Padukone, John Abraham, Sonakshi Sinha and Anil Kapoor. The glam girl talks about her role in the sequel.
How does it feel to be part of a successful franchise like Race?
It feels great. Race 2 is a big film to be associated with. This year has been amazing for me. I’ve turned producer and I’m back to working with Abbas-Mustan. I am also thrilled to be working with Saif Ali Khan after Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic.
How did this role come to you?
I have worked with Abbas-Mustan and Ramesh Taurani before. Since I have a great working relationship with the entire team, it was something I accepted in a heartbeat.
You are sharing screen space with Deepika and Sonakshi. Expecting any catfights?
Not at all. We get along like a house on fire. I am very friendly with Sonakshi as I have met her at Salman Khan’s place a couple of times. Deepika is someone I am looking forward to working with. We will have a great time and it’s a superb star cast. I will be sharing most of my scenes with the girls, so there’s a lot of excitement.
Any apprehensions about wearing a bikini?
Not at all. I trust Abbas-Mustan. This film is racier, sexier and steamier than the first. Even during Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic, I was thrilled with the response I got for the Lazy Lamhe song.
What’s happening on the production front?
A lot. There are projects planned with directors David Dhawan and Priyadarshan. Also Kuunal Goomer has been a great support with his amazing business sense. He’s a trustworthy partner and we have some exciting things lined up.
