Mumbai: After Kareena Kapoor grabbed the female lead role from Bipasha and Katrina in ‘Race 2’, news has it that Priyanka is all set to join the bandwagon.

Talking about the newfound development to a news daily, a source said, “Katrina’s absence was almost certain because her character in ‘Race’ dies, but Bipasha’s absence is certainly surprising.”

Meanwhile, a close pal of Priyanka’s confirmed the news and said, “Priyanka still has to complete ‘Saat Khoon Maaf’. She will then move on to ‘Don 2’ and the TV Series ‘Fear Factor 3’. But she is excited about the character she’ll play in ‘Race 2’ and is working out her dates for the project.”

Buzz has it that director Abbas-Mustan and producer Ramesh Taurani want to make a sexier version of ‘Race’.
