Deepika Padukone has reportedly rejoined the cast of Race 2.
Dips was threatened with legal action by the films producer Ramesh Taurani after she walked out on the movie.
Dharmesh Tiwari from the Cine and TV Artistes’ Association, told Mumbai Mirror :”There is no final settlement yet. Deepika has spoken to me. I met her on Wednesday. But yes, we expect this fight to end in the next 48 hours.”
Dips has allegedly ordered a set of guidelines for producers to adhere to, following earlier schedule changes and filming delays.
“Deepika has five points of concern. If the producers of Race 2 are interested in having her back on board, they will have to look into the conditions. Now the ball is in their court,” said a source close to the star.
Race 2 producer Ramesh Taurani has accused Deepika Padukone of walking out on the Bollywood sequel for a ‘Big Hollywood project’.
The star had already completed six days of shooting on the action thriller sequel when she abandoned the project, reports Mumbai Mirror.
“On that day, people kept calling me asking whether Deepika was out of Race 2. I was clueless. I called her and asked her. She simply said that she would come to my office by 5pm with her new manager to work out everything,” said Taurani.
“At around 3pm, she called to say that she wouldn’t be able to keep the appointment. However, her manager would be present on her behalf. Finally, when the manager arrived, he simply told me that Deepika wouldn’t be able to do our film. And that’s because she is doing a major Hollywood project.”
Taurani vented: “I have been a part of the Hindi cinema industry for 25 years. I have made several blockbusters. I have worked with famous actresses like Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Katrina Kaif, Vidya Balan and Kareena Kapoor. But I have never faced a situation like this before.”
Deepika Padukone reportedly announced split from boyfriend using BlackBerry Messenger!
Dips BBM status and image suggests that she is no longer with partner Siddharth Mallya. She updated her status to ‘Game Over’, and replaced her picture with a dark, black image.
“She was upset for a while. But after a day or two she changed her BlackBerry messenger status. However, by that time, everybody had come to know about the split,” said a source.
Bollywood star Deepika Padukone disagrees with dieting and doesn’t believe in it!
“It’s about eating correctly, healthy and eating what suits your body. I don’t believe in dieting. For me, diet is about eating correctly and eating healthy” she said.
“I love food. I love trying out different types of cuisine. I love eating in different kinds of restaurants, trying out new things and I think I have the luxury to do that because I travel a lot” Deepika added.
It was reported that Deepika had to lose several pounds for the sequel to Bollywood flick ‘Race’.

Deepika Padukone has returned to action film Race 2 after her pay was increased.
The actress dropped out of the project because of a scheduling clash with Ayan Mukerji’s Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, which co-stars her ex-boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor.
A source told Mumbai Mirror: “Deepika felt that her pairing with Saif [Ali Khan] needs a break after Love Aaj Kal, Aarakshan and Homi Adajania’s film – tentatively titled Cocktail.
“When the dates for Race 2 and Ayan’s film clashed, she opted for the latter.”
They added: “Rumours about Priyanka Chopra replacing Deepika hasn’t gone down too well with [producers] the Tauranis. They sat down with Deepika and sorted out all the problems. They even agreed to enhance her remuneration.”

Sonam Kapoor is holding no punches when talking about her friendship with Ranbir Kapoor.
Sonam praised Deepika Padukone saying that she admired her for hanging on to him for as long as she did. Deepika implied Ranbir had cheated on her while they were together.
Rishi Kapoor said at the time that the actresses should focus on their work instead of talking the way they did about his son. Ranbir’s mum Neetu and his aunt were upset too.
Sonam has reignited the fight after hearing Ranbir saying ‘Sonam is not hot’. The Kapoor girl says she just reacted to what he said with ‘Ranbir is not hot’.
Sonam added, “Why should I say ‘sorry’ to him? Just because his father made a hue and cry about it? If Ranbir apologises to me, I shall too.” She also added that he wasn’t her friend anymore.
