If reports are to believed than Sushant Singh Rajput and Jacqueline Fernandez starrer thriller Drive which was suppose to release on 2 March might get postponed due to production reasons. Directed by Tarun Mansukhani and produced by Dharma Productions Drive is a stylish sleek action thriller with lots of stunt works and vfx in it. VFX of the film might take a little too long to get completed upto the standards that makers want. If Drive does not get postponed than it will have to clash with Anushka Sharma starrer horror film Pari.
Pari was suppose to release on 9 February but as Aiyaary got postponed, Anushka stalled the release date of her film to March 2. The entire domino of Hindi film industry has shook up as Padmaavat decided to release on 25 January and films to next 6 months are desperately changing release dates. One more film that is getting postponed due to production and editing reason is Rajkumar Hirani’s Ranbir Kapoor starrer Sanjay Dutt biopic. Film was suppose to release on March 29 [now Baaghi 2] and got shifted to June 29 because of which Diljit Dosanjh starrer sports biopic Soorma decided to change it’s date and not clash with Dutt biopic.
Ekta Kapoor stalled her film Veere Di Wedding by 2 weeks to now release on June 1 and John Abraham starrer Parmaanu which was suppose to release on 8 December [delayed because Padmaavat] is still finding a release date in all this difficulty. Biggest release shift has happened just yet as Akshay Kumar on the request of Sanjay Bhansali has shifted Padman to 9 February because of which Luv Ranjan’s Sonu Ke Tittu Ki Sweety might have to delay it’s release. Sushant has many upcoming films including Drive, Kedarnath, Abhishek Chaubey film and he might be working with Dangal famed director Nitesh Tiwari in a film which will be produced by Sajid Nadiadwala. Sushant is also doing space film Chanda Mama Door Ke.
