Tarun Manukhani’s Drive finally gets a release date. Sushant Singh Rajput and Jacqueline Fernandez had finished shooting for the film last year itself, however, despite the movie being slated for release in September last year, it was postponed several times. The release date for the film had been stalled reportedly due to creative differences between Mansukhani and Karan Johar.
Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions shared a small promo on Thursday and revealed the release date of the action thriller. The official Twitter handle of the production house shared, “Buckle up, #Drive hits theatres on 28th June 2019 @karanjohar @apoorvamehta18 @Tarunmansukhani @itsSSR @Asli_Jacqueline @foxstarhindi.”
Karan Johar too shared the motion teaser and wrote alongside, “On your marks, get set & race. See you in cinemas for a pulsating ride on 28th June, 2019 . #DRIVE”
Sushant, who was last seen in Abhishek Kapoor’s Kedarnath, alongside Sara Ali Khan, had earlier said that the film is not a remake of the 2011 Hollywood production of the same name. The actor had in fact said that if it were a remake, the makers would have cast someone better looking and not him. This is the first time that Sushant Singh Rajput will be sharing screen space with Jacqueline Fernandez whose last film Race 3 had tanked at the Box Office.
After Race 3, superstar Salman Khan is currently busy with his upcoming project Bharat. The movie will see collaboration of director Ali Abbas Zafar, Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif after the successful Tiger Zinda Hai. As reports coming in, Varun Dhawan will be seen in a special scene in which he will share a screen space Salman Khan.
As reported in Mumbai Mirror, while Varun Chose not to comment, a source close to the development told , “Ali had recently approached Varun with the idea and the actor readily agreed to come on board. The scene featuring Varun and Salman will be shot in the next few days. On Tuesday, Varun left for Abu Dhabi, where the film’s third schedule kicked off recently.”
Earlier this year, Salman did a cameo in Varun’s Judwaa 2, which was a sequel to 1997 hit Judwaa, and and featured Jacqueline Fernandez and Taapsee Pannu as female leads. Now, looks like Varun is returning the favour by shooting for Bharat.
Bharat which is an official adaptation of the Korean film An Ode To My Father, is said to be release in Eid 2019. Along with Salman-Katrina, it also stars Disha Patani, Tabu, Jackie Shroff and Sunil grover in key roles. After long schedules in Mumbai, Malta and Abu Dhabi, the Bharat team will shoot in Delhi and Punjab next.
The makers have been meeting the actress and are in advanced talks. If all goes well, Jacqueline will sign the dotted line soon. She will play the lead, played by Rashmika Mandanna in its original version. The film which went on to be a huge hit in Kannada was also remade in Telegu later. And now the Hindi version is on its way.
Reportedly, the film was initially offered to Sidharth Malhotra but things didn’t work out. Now, Kartik will be seen playing the lead. While Jacqueline is being considered as the female lead. If she gives her nod, this will be the first time this pair, Jacqueline and Kartik will be seen together on the big screen. The makers will be looking for one more actress to star in the film. This fresh pairing has got us excited, what about you?
Post the blockbuster hit of ‘Kick’, Jacqueline Fernandez is all set to recreate the magic with superstar Salman Khan in their upcoming action franchise, ‘Race 3’. Jacqueline who has always been vocal about her equation with Salman Khan has gone ahead to speak in depth about her ‘Race 3’ co-star.
Jacqueline Fernandez shared, “We’ve known each other quite well for quite some time now, from the time I came to India. He has been one of my biggest supporters. Salman has been a friend from the time I didn’t even know if I should really sign a film or not. Then, of course, being a part of Kick really changed things for me”.
She further adds, “To me, Salman is a family. I respect him a lot and would do anything for him, and I know the feeling is mutual. I really appreciate the fact that we can be really honest with each other. I respect him a lot, I feel like he has been a huge, positive force for me”.
