First, Kangana and Rajkummar’s ‘Mental Hai Kya?’ and now Jaqueline and Sushant’s much-awaited ‘Drive’ – it seems like Shahid Kapoor’s upcoming film ‘Kabir Singh’ is in for quite the box-office battle.

In all probability, the film will clash with Shahid Kapoor’s film Kabir Singh – which is scheduled for a release date of June 21. Kangana Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao-starrer Mental Hai Kya is also slated to release on the same date. So, the Jacqueline Fernandez and Sushant Singh Rajput-starrer Drive might battle it out with these two films at the box office. This is after the film has been delayed several times in the past. It was earlier slated for a September 7, 2018 release.
Jacqueline Fernandez was last seen in Race 3. She is now working with Farah Khan for Mrs. Serial Killer which will be available on the digital platform, Netflix. Sushant Singh Rajput was last seen with Bhumi Pednekar in Sonchiriya.
Jacqueline Fernandez, in an interview with GoodTimes, had spoken about the film’s release getting delayed. She had attributed the delay to the immense graphics, post-production and VFX that the film is requiring.
We’ve actually gone into major VFX with the film. Tarun has actually taken a lot of time. It’s only his second film after Dostana, and we’ve put in a lot of effort. It’s an amazing script, it’s so interesting. He’s taking time since there are a lot of cars, there’s a lot of action. We’re very eager to see the film releasing.
