After his praiseworthy performance in a negative role in Dhoom, John Abraham will again be seen playing the bad guy in the sequel of Race, says a media report. The film will now star Saif Ali Khan, Anil Kapoor and John Abraham in the lead roles. The lead actresses are yet to be finalised.
The report quoting a source said, producer Ramesh Taurani has been wanting to work with John for long now. Even Abbas-Mustan, the directors have been in talks about the same. Now they have decided to cast him. Unlike the rest of the characters in Race who had both negative and positive shades, John will be playing an out and out villain in the sequel. John has also loved the script and is quite kicked about playing the bad guy.
Ramesh Taurani confirmed, “Yes John has been finalised for the negative role in the film, but we are yet to cast the three female leads.”
