New Delhi: The original Race released to packed audiences in 2008. Abbas-Mastan’s entertaining murder mystery took the box office by storm to become one of the highest grossers of the year.
Ameesha Patel has now joined the film’s sequel.
The sequel, of course, is expected to outdo even the original.
Simply titled Race 2 as of now, the cast includes Anil Kapoor, Saif Ali Khan, John Abraham, Deepika Padukone and Chitrangda Singh. It is learnt that Ameesha will star opposite Anil Kapoor, who played a quirky, corrupt detective in Race.
A source close to the star has revealed that Ameesha will sport a bikini in the film, adding to its glam quotient. Many will remember that Ameesha sported a yellow bikini in Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic. Though the film bombed, Ameesha’s sizzling turn brought her back into the public eye.
Race 2 will go on floors this October and will release in August 2012.
