Tarun Mansukhani's directorial venture, Drive, will bring Jacqueline and Sushant Singh Rajput together for the first time. The film will also have Vikramjeet Virk and Sapna Pabbi in pivotal roles. Drive is said to be the first installment of an action franchise.
Tarun's last film was Dostana which released way back in 2008, starring John Abraham, Abhishek Bachchan and Priyanka Chopra in the lead. The film had a funny take on homosexuality and emerged successful.
The Times of India claims Drive is the first Indian film to be shot in Israel and the makers intend to release the film there as well. The film revolves around a sports car junkie.
While Jacqueline was last seen in Judwaa 2 and awaiting an Eid release for Race 3 opposite Salman Khan, Sushant Singh Rajput's last film was Raabta which bombed at the box office. Sushant is currently shooting with Saif Ali Khan's daughter Sara Ali Khan and the duo will be seen together in Abhishek Kapoor's Kedarnath releasing this December.

The Bombay HC reserved its order on Kangana Ranaut's plea seeking quashing of criminal defamation proceedings initiated against her by a metropolitan magistrate's court on a complaint filed by Javed Akhtar.
The complainant alleged that the accused defrauded him by inducing him to invest lakhs of rupees in a Mumbai-based company in 2018, which later yielded no returns
