Karan Johar’s upcoming production venture Drive starring Jacqueline Fernandez and Sushant Singh Rajput made news when the filmmaker announced it on Twitter early this year. Without revealing much about it, Karan mentioned that it will be the first film in the new action series and later it was said that Jacqueline will play a street racer in the movie. Now, in the latest development, we have got our hands on the release date of this KJo project. The movie will be released on Holi weekend next year on March 2.
Sharing the news on his Twitter account and releasing a poster of the film, Karan wrote, “Start..Zoom..Accelerate..#DRIVE on the 2nd of March 2018 with @itsSSR and @Asli_Jacqueline directed by our DOSTana boy @Tarunmansukhani.” The action thriller marks the directorial comeback of Tarun Mansukhani, whose last silver screen outing Dostana was a hit. In an earlier tweet, he expressed his excitement about his comeback project as he tweeted, “7 years 345 days later… am back on set!!!!”
