Not just a lip-lock, the two stars are set to shed some serious inhibitions in a sequence for Race 2

She is not the kind to shy away from an on-screen lip-lock. Remember Bachna Ae Haseeno? But Deepika Padukone has decided to push the envelope quite a bit and after much deliberation, has reportedly agreed to do a rather intimate scene with Saif Ali Khan in Abbas-Mustan’s sequel to the 2008 thriller Race.

Mumbai Mirror has learnt that in the film, which will be produced by Ramesh Taurani, Deepika will shoot her rather steamy sequence with Saif in Mumbai or Turkey. According to a source close to the unit, the actress took some time before agreeing to the scene.

The source explained, “She is a thorough professional. Realising that Race 2 will be slicker than Race, she had a long meeting with Abbas-Mustan and requested the directors to shoot the scene aesthetically.”

His was confirmed by Deepika’s friend, who said, “Yes, Deepika does have a very intimate scene with Saif in Race 2. However, she has requested that the scene be shot in a way that it appears relevant to the script.”

Speaking about the intimate scene, Abbas Mastan said, “It is a turning point in the film.” Producer Ramesh Taurani however refused to comment on the same.
