MUMBAI: After two days of negotiations, Deepika Padukone has finally decided to jump back on board for Ramesh Taurani's 'Race 2', though she has set some conditions.
It is being said that after meeting Taurani yesterday, Padukone realised that it wouldn't be in her best interest to contest the filmmaker on
Though the official CINTAA (Cine and TV Artistes' Association) meeting was called off 30 minutes before its scheduled time on Wednesday, the actress did end up meeting CINTAA general secretary Dharmesh Tiwari who asked her to stay away from monetary hassles and say 'yes' to Taurani.
The conditions that Padukone has set are that she will not allot fresh dates to 'Race 2', as she will be busy with Rajinikanth's 'Kochadaiyaan' and the Ranbir Kapoor starrer 'Jawaani Diwani'. She has asked both Taurani and director Abbas-Mustan to not work with middlemen; she will only work with her chosen set of designers, hair stylist and makeup artist; she wants the makers to consult her for the release of their film because she wants no misunderstandings during the promotional phase of the film; and in case of a foreign schedule, the actress wants to be informed a month in advance.
