Clearing all speculations, Ramesh Taurani confirmed Mumbai Mirror, "Yes, we have signed Jacqueline in place of Sonakshi. We start shooting in November." Jacqueline earlier refused to work in Krissh 2 since she denied to share a lip-lock with Hrithik Roshan. Also, she refused to pose in a bikini for the film.
It was heard that Jacqueline turned down Krissh 2 under the influence of her possessive boyfriend cum director Sajid Khan.
Race 2 will also have Deepika Padukone, Ameesha Patel, Saif Ali Khan, Anil Kapoor and John Abraham. The film will go on the floors next year.
