Karan Johar who is producing the film under his production banner Dharma Productions shared the news on Instagram today. He shared a picture of Sushant and Jacqueline and wrote, “Shifting into high gear with #Drive! Coming onto your #Netflix screens soon. @apoorva1972 @sushantsinghrajput @jacquelinef143 @tarun_mansukhani @dharmamovies @netflix_in.”

Talking about this change in plan, Karan Johar said, “Our vision for Drive was to make a film that elevates the genre of action-heist films. With nail-biting chases and action sequences, fronted by a spectacular cast, Drive combines the best of Bollywood storytelling with international production quality.” He also spoke of how he is thrilled to release the film on a web portal for global viewing.
