Karan Johar’s Drive starring Sushant Singh Rajput and Jacqueline Fernandez has seen many delays since the project’s announcement. After several false updates and postponed release dates, Drive, directed by Tarun Mansukhani will now release on Netflix.
The date is yet to be firmed in. But a source close to Dharma Productions reveals,
“Karan Johar could not afford to take the risk of a theatrical release for Drive after the double debacle in 2019 of Kalank and Student Of The Year 2. Karan made every effort to spruce up the film, give it a slick spin and release in theatres. But it was too risky. He had decided to shelve it when Netflix came forward to buy and stream Drive as part of their long-term deal with Karan Johar and Dharma Production.”
Apparently, Sushant Singh Rajput has done a nude scene in Drive, which would have been problematic had the film has a theatrically released. Now on Netflix, viewers can enjoy all of Sushant, uncensored.
Speaking about this nude scene with a leading daily a couple of years ago Sushant said:
“It’s not a full monty scene like it’s made out to be. Instead, it’s more like an illusion. It’s somewhat like what you saw in Deadpool. It’s not a completely nude scene like many actors have done in films.”
Drive will see Sushant Singh Rajput and Jacqueline Fernandez together for the first time. They both play car-racing drivers.
