Post  Kalank Karan Johar shelves Drive?
Its become a bit of a joke at Dharma Productions. Drive which was meant to be released a year ago has missed at least four release dates so far, the latest release date to be knocked down being June 28. According to a report in a tabloid the film is not ready yet since the action scenes are taking longer than expected. But the problem, according to insiders, runs much deeper. Drive has just not shaped up well; its as simple as that. Karan Johar being a kind hearted producer didnt want the film to be announced as shelved as this would damage director Tarun Mansukhanis career, says a source in the know. Manusukhani, it may be recalled, directed the successful Dostana for Karan Johars Dharma Productions in 2008. Thereafter plans to make the sequel to Dostana was announced and scrapped at least three times, as Karan was not happy with Mansukhanis script. The shooting for Drive a remake of the 2011 American film of the same name, was started nearly 3 years ago. The film was completed. But the end-product did not meet up with the quality standards of Dharma Production. For more than a year, Karan Johar has been struggling to give a presentable shape to this organically damaged product. Says the source, It was meant to be Bollywoods own Fast & Furious with never-before car chases and a road frenzy that would give Indian audiences a new high. Sadly theres nothing Fast about the way the project has developed, although Karan Johar is certainly Furious at the end product. Sources say Drive may end up being shelved or shown on the streaming platform. Rest assured it wont make it into the theatres. After Kalank and Student Of The Year Karan Johar cant risk another potential debacle, says the source.
