Four girls – Deepika Padukone, Jacqueline Fernandes, Amisha Patel and Bipasha Basu. Three guys – Anil Kapoor, Saif Ali Khan and John Abraham.

And now there’s Sanjay Dutt. The sequel to Abbas-Mustan’s 2008 hit thriller Race is getting bigger by the minute.

Mumbai Mirror has learnt that Dutt has been signed for Abbas-Mustan’s ambitious sequel Race 2. A source close to the film informed, “Abbas-Mustan were very keen to have Sanju in the film. They even convinced the producers, Tips and UTV.”

Sanjay Dutt’s role in the film is however, being kept under the wraps as of now.

Talking about Sanjay’s character in the film, our source added, “He has just signed the film. So it’s too early to divulge the details. But yes, it’s a very integral role and quite a strong one. The story takes an interesting turn when Dutt enters the film.”

While Bipasha Basu and Saif Ali Khan, who were also a part of the first will appear in the film simply to make the connect, the rest of the cast will reprotedly take the story forward.

In fact, the scene between Bipasha and John was edited by the filmmakers since John and Bips were not required to be togeher in the film.

Race 2 was originally supposed to be produced by Tips alone. However, with the cast getting bigger, UTV entered into a partnership with Tips. Having produced Race with Tips earlier, the two production house share a good working relationship. They now have a two-film-deal to co-produce Race 2 and Riteish and Genelia starrer Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya. Sanjay remained unavailable for comment.
