Abbas-Mustan thriller fans won't have to wait much longer as the sequel to the 2008 blockbuster RACE readies for its release, scheduled for the 25th January, 2013.
After several deliberations, duo Abbas-Mustan and producer Ramesh Taurani of Tips zeroed in on the release date of the film.
Confirms Producer Ramesh Taurani, ''RACE 2 releases on January 25 next year. We felt it was just the right date to release our film.''
Having gone on floors earlier this year, the highly-anticipated action thriller from the house of Tips completed its second schedule through the month of Jan-Feb with star cast Anil Kapoor, Saif Ali Khan, John Abraham, Deepika Padukone, Jacqueline Fernandez and Ameesha Patel.
Says director Abbas, ''RACE 2 is in the same genre and will be made on as grand a scale as the original. We will be shooting in Turkey and Cyprus next. The story has plenty of twists and turns and every character will have gray shades.''
Adds producer Ramesh Taurani, ''We shot for the second schedule of the film from 23rd Jan to 24th Feb. It took off smoothly and the star cast has been accommodating throughout. We are very excited and hope to make RACE 2 bigger and better than the original.''
In spite of being a multi-starrer, sources confirm that the shoots went off smoothly and everyone on board was accommodating given their excitement over the film.
Produced by Tips, the action thriller RACE 2 starring Saif Ali Khan, John Abraham, Deepika Padukone, Jacqueline Fernandez, Anil Kapoor and Ameesha Patel is scheduled to release 25th January, 2013.
