The Abbas-Mustan directed thriller starring Saif Ali Khan, John Abraham, Anil Kapoor, Deepika Padukone, Jacqueline Fernandez and Ameesha Patel released in January. It is the highest grossing film of 2013 so far. It crossed the R 100 crore plus mark in the country while the overseas collections were Rs 37 crore.
Says Taurani, “Race 2 has proved to be the highest grosser of 2013. It also had the highest opening for a Saif-Anil-Deepika starrer.”
The filmmaker is now hoping that the film’s television premiere too fetches high TRPs.
