Deepika Padukone: My Race songs are as popular as Katrina Kaif’s
Deepika Padukone has said that the soundtrack to Race 2 is as popular as the original movie.
The Bollywood star was asked whether the sequel’s music is as strong as Kaif’s tracks ‘Zara Zara Touch Me’ and ‘Khwab Dekhe’ from the first film.
“I think for some films the music catches on with the audience after the release of the film. I think that Race 2 is one of those films. Also, I disagree with you because the music has become quite popular,” Padukone said.
The actress felt that the music will also get an even wider audience now that the action thriller is in cinemas.
“All four songs ‘Party On My Mind’, ‘Be Intehaan’, ‘Lat Lag Gayee’ and ‘Allah Duhai’ are great songs. I also feel that once a film releases, the music will catch on with audiences post that.”
Padukone went on to speak about how the many twists and turns in the Abbas-Mustan project complicated the shooting process.
“You know, every time we were shooting a scene, we were almost given a narration of the entire script again. The baggage that we are carrying in every single take changes in every scene because the equations between the characters change.
“This is also true to the Race style as the first film was like that. Every time we were shooting a scene, we would sit down and be told this has happened before the scene and this will happen after this scene, then we would play act the scene accordingly.”
Race 2 is out now.

Katrina Kaif (born Katrina Turquotte; 16 July 1983) is an English actress who works in Hindi films. She has established herself in Bollywood and is one of India’s highest-paid actresses.
Born in Hong Kong, Kaif and her family lived in several countries before she moved to London. She received her first modelling assignment as a teenager and later pursued a career as a fashion model. At a fashion show in London, filmmaker Kaizad Gustad spotted Kaif and decided to cast her in Boom (2003), a critical and commercial failure. While filming in India, Kaif received modelling assignments and established a successful modelling career. However, filmmakers were hesitant to cast her due to her poor command of Hindi. After appearing in the Telugu film, Malliswari (2004), Kaif earned commercial success in Bollywood with the romantic comedies Maine Pyaar Kyun Kiya? (2005) and Namastey London (2007). She followed with a series of box-office hits, but was criticised for her acting, repetitive roles and inclination to male-dominated films.
