Director duo Abbas-Mustan is back with the sequel of Race, which promises to have more action, more thrill and more heat. The trailer begins with Saif Ali Khan's monologue: "Badla jitna purana hota hai, utna hi khatarnak hota hai."
Saif Ali Khan, who also featured in the first installment, looks dashing in his lean and crisp look. John Abraham (the film's antagonist), flaunts his chiseled body, taking hotness quotient of the film to another level.
Of course, there are the sexy ladies- Deepika Padukone, Jacqueline Fernandes and Ameesha Patel. The Padukone girl makes the most impact with her ten on ten figure, carrying forward her sex appeal from her last hit Cocktail.
Anil Kapoor will reprise his role from the original. Bipasha Basu will also be seen in a cameo.
Saif will once again be seen romancing Deepika after Cocktail, Love Aaj Kal and Aarakshan. John and Jacqueline, who starred together in Housefull 2, are paired opposite each other again. Anil Kapoor is expected to fool around with Ameesha Patel, like he did with Sameera Reddy in the first part.
About the film
"Race 2 will be made on as grand a scale as the original. We will be shooting in Turkey and Cyprus next," director Abbas Burmawalla said in an interview.
According to creative producer Jay Shewakramani, "The twists and turns and the style quotient of Race 2 is a notch higher. It is a perfect sequel."
Although the plot of Race 2 has been kept closely guarded, the thriller has been shot in lush, exotic locations with the backdrop of gambling and casinos. 'Action over thrill' seems to be the mantra of the film.
The music director of Race, Pritam, returns to compose for the sequel.
Race 2 is slated for January 25, 2013 release.
