Bollywood What's Happenin'

Producer Jay Shewakramani says "Saif Ali Khan lends so much to the film.."

When a team works together on a film, it’s not uncommon for some to bond and become good friends. More so, when they’re shooting abroad for two months and spend most of their time together. So, while the Race 2 cast, comprising of Saif Ali Khan, John Abraham, Anil Kapoor, Deepika Padukone, Jacqueline Fernandez and Ameesha Patel, bonded with the makers during the 60-day outdoor shooting in Turkey, the Nawab became good friends with Creative Producer, Jay Shewakramani.

And just before they wrapped up the last schedule in Mumbai, Saif Ali Khan gifted Jay Shewakramani a high-end luxury brand suit! Incidentally, a team from the brand had visited the sets for the actor’s measurements when he asked Shewakramani to pick one for himself as well. Recalling the sweet gesture, Jay Shewakramani said,

“Saif is a great guy and a big asset. He lends so much to the film.”

Pleased with the way the film has shaped up, Jay Shewakramani said,

“In fact, it looks better than what it seemed to be on paper. I think we have a good film. If all goes well, the audience will surely like the action, dialogue, styling and everything else that we have worked so hard upon to make the film as it has turned out. The second installment of the popular franchise has all the ingredients of a blockbuster.”

Race 2 is produced by Tips Industries Ltd and UTV Motion Pictures. Be sure to catch this flick when it releases January 25th 2013!
