Akshaye dropped from The Italian Job and added to Race 2?

The shy Bobby Deol will be seen in a multi-starrer that doesn’t include his dad and brother after a long time. He has been signed on for Abbas-Mustan’s remake of The Italian Job. The actor will be working with Abbas-Mustan again after a long time. The director duo and Bobby have delivered super hits like Soldier, Ajnabee and Humraaz in the past.

Our source said, “The director duo have made many films in the past with Bobby but their last film Naqaab did not work at the box office. This will also be the second film where we will see Bobby and Abhishek Bachchan together after Jhoom Barabar Jhoom. Both of them will be playing lead roles in the film while Neil Nitin Mukesh will be playing the negative lead. There were reports that Akshaye Khanna would be acting in the film, but he will be doing Race 2 with the directors and not this film.”

As per reports the film will go on the floors in November.

We want confirmation that he's been added to Race 2 but why can't he be in both movies?

OMG! Whatever it is, Abbas-Mustan's flicks are nothing without Akshaye Khanna.

If not this time, then let's hope that Akshoo does more movies with the men in white next time.

It could be that Akshaye may have had a billing problem (since Abhishek is considered the hero) with the directors or that his role was not meaty enough.
Under no circumstance should he compromise on his role and his billing.
If he is ina movie it is going to be entirely on his terms. So although it may seem that he has been "dropped" from the Italian Job,it can be construed that he did not want to be part of a film where he may end up as a"prop"
