Recently, it was announced that Sushant Singh Rajput and Jacqueline Fernandes starrer Drive will now release on Netflix. The film has been delayed for more than a year from its release and finally, it will be out on the digital platform. The film is helmed by Tarun Mansukhani and produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions.
In the film, Sushant Singh Rajput has a nude scene and when the news came out, everyone talked about how the censor board would react. So will it now cause trouble in the film’s digital release? Well, no. As reported by Deccan Chronicle, it would have caused trouble with the CBFC if Drive had a theatrical release.
A source mentioned, “Karan Johar could not afford to take the risk of a theatrical release for Drive after the double debacle in 2019 of Kalank and Student Of The Year 2. Karan made every effort to spruce up the film, give it a slick spin, and release it in theatres, but it was too risky. He had decided to shelve it when Netflix came forward to buy and stream Drive as part of their long-term deal with Karan and Dharma Productions.”
When Sushant was asked about the nude scene, the actor said, “If you ask me whether I am comfortable showing my skin on screen, I will say yes. I don’t have inhibitions, but the role needs to require that kind of a scene. It can’t be just for the heck of it.”
