After the success of Race (2008), Ramesh Taurani registered Race 2 as a title and Abbas-Mustan said that they would go ahead with a sequel “if we get a script in place which is even better than the original.” The screenplay was written by Shiraz Ahmed who also wrote Race. Saif Ali Khan and Anil Kapoor were the first to sign on to the film in November 2009 and were reported to be the only returning cast members from the first film. In June 2010, John Abraham was signed on to play the antagonist and Kareena Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra were approached to co-star opposite Khan and Abraham respectively. However, Kapoor turned down the role as she didn’t want her pairing with Khan to get repetitive and Chopra opted out due to scheduling conflicts and was subsequently replaced by Padukone. In December 2010, Sonakshi Sinha was cast as a replacement for Kapoor. Chitrangda Singh was approached for a role opposite Anil Kapoor in May 2011 but eventually dropped out for unspecified reasons. Ameesha Patel and Mallika Sherawat were considered for that same role but it ultimately went to Patel.
The film’s shooting was set to begin on 5 October 2011 but was postponed to accommodate Deepika Padukone’s dates causing scheduling conflicts with Sonakshi Sinha. Sinha’s dates conflicted with her filming schedule for Dabangg 2 (2012), forcing her to drop out. In October 2011, Jacqueline Fernandez who had opted out Krrish 3 & Raaz 3 was cast as a replacement for Sinha. Shortly afterwards, it was announced that Bipasha Basu would be reprising her role as Sonia in a cameo appearance, and continuing to be Khan’s girlfriend. Despite rumours suggesting that Basu will be sharing screen space with ex-boyfriend John Abraham for the first time after their breakup, Abraham denied this.
The film’s first shooting schedule began on 5 November 2011 in Mumbai for 15 days, wrapping up on 20 November. Meanwhile, Sanjay Dutt was in talks to join the cast of the film, but he dropped out due to scheduling conflicts. The second schedule commenced on 23 January 2012 in Mumbai. However, Deepika dropped out within six days of filming because the film was always being rescheduled. The film’s producer Ramesh Taurani released a statement to the media deeming Padukone’s behavior as “unethical, unprofessional and unacceptable”. Also, it was reported that Nargis Fakhri was offered the role to replace Kapoor, although it has been rumoured that she declined the offer, thus, avoiding any controversies regarding her and Kapoor. However, Deepika Padukone and Taurani agreed on a settlement after much negotiation and the filming continued as planned. Jacqueline Fernandez, John Abraham and Deepika Padukone joined the cast in May at Istanbul for the third schedule. On 7 October 2012, shooting for the film was completed.
