“It is not less than any Hollywood film. This sequence is formulated by action director Peter Hein,” Taurani said.

Race 2, which is a sequel to the 2008 hit film Race, boasts of an ensemble cast including Saif Ali Khan, Deepika Padukone, John Abraham, Anil Kapoor and Ameesha Patel.

“There are lots of expectations from Race 2. I am sure it will be a blockbuster. The USP of Race was its story and even in the sequel we have given importance to the story. We spent over two years or so on the script.

“Be it action or any film, the content has to be good. The look, sets, costumes and other things are a part of packaging. Any film with a good storyline will do well. In Race 2 the story is good and the action comes in the proper place,” he said.

Asked about the much-hyped cameo of Bipasha Basu in the sequel, Taurani says, “We don’t want to disclose anything right now... Let it be a surprise.”

In the first installment of the film, Bipasha played Saif Ali Khan’s love interest. But she does not have a full-fledged role in the sequel.

“There will be an item song in the film. Like in the first part, we had leading lady Katrina Kaif doing Touch Me, even in the sequel we will have the heroines – Deepika, Jacqueline doing an item song,” he said.
