drive” is being produced by Karan Johar and stars Sushant Rajput and Jacqueline Fernandez in the lead roles. Jackie and Sushant are all set to light up the silver screen for the first time. A few days back Sushant had released a snap from the flick with his co-star looking each other deeply and aptly captioned the snap as “Who blinks first….” The film is scheduled for a September 7 release.

The flick has a Holi release, but it could be delayed.

Some production work is remaining and some shooting is also required before the flick is fit for release.

Jacqueline who is riding high on the success of “Judwaa” has a string of flicks lined up for release, and this includes “Race 3” and “Kick 2” with Salman Khan. Sushant also has two flicks for release, and it includes 'Kedarnath,' which marks the debut of Sara Ali Khan and Bollywood’s first space film, 'Chandamama Door Ke.'

The Indian adaptation of 'Fast and the Furious'

Both Jacqueline Fernandez and Sushant Singh Rajput were shooting for the flick with an 80 member crew in Tel Aviv. "Drive" is said to be a new franchise from Karan Johar and is an Indian adaptation of the “Fast and the Furious.” Interestingly the flick is partly financed by different arms of the Israel government and includes the Tourism Ministry and the Prime Minister’s Office.

With the relationship between both India and Israel as close as never before, the Jewish government is leaving no stones overturned to attract the Indian film industry which makes the highest number of films in the world. Israel is also using the flick to showcase Israel with its rugged beauty and untouched countryside.
