Taurani sends SOS to Priyanka for Race 2?

Deepika Paukone had walked out of Ramesh Taurani’s sequel to the 2008 thriller Race (Mumbai Mirror, February 4). And that too, after the film had already gone on floors. With his ambitious project in jeopardy, Taurani has now sent a SOS to Priyanka Chopra, asking her to step into Deepika’s shoes. And Mumbai Mirror has learnt that the actress has apparently liked the script of Race 2.
Interestingly, this is not the first time Taurani has summoned Priyanka for Deepika’s role in the film. In October 2011, when Deepika had informed the producers that her dates for Ayaan Mukerji’s film would clash with Race 2, Priyanka was summoned. However, by the time Priyanka reverted, Dippy had sorted out her dates.
However, with Deepika leaving the project after shooting for a few days, the task of finding an actress for the role had become tougher. “It would be rather nice if Priyanka accepts the offer. She had been considered for the role earlier as well. She is aware of the script. So there won’t be any time lost over narration. Things can easily fall into place,” said a source close to the project.
According to the source, Priyanka, who is currently busy shooting for Rakesh Roshan’s Krrish 3 in Hyderabad, will meet Taurani as soon as she returns.
Priyanka and Taurani remained unavailable for comment.
