Why are so many  of  Sushant Singh  Rajput’s  films getting shelved  or  delayed?  Barely had we gotten  over the fact that  his dream  project Paani with Shekhar Kapoor has been  aborted, and that the space odyssey Chanda Mama Dur Ke has been  indefinitely delayed, comes the news  that Sushant’s almost-ready-for-release starrer Drive, his first for  Karan  Johar productions, is  in trouble. Deep trouble.
According to sources  in the know, the film’s producer Karan Johar is  not happy with the end-product. “Karan has already sent  back the film for re-shooting twice. But even after director Tarun Mansukhani  re-shot portions of Drive, Karan was  unhappy. At the moment the  future of  the  film seems uncertain. Because  Karan is  not willing to release  it the way it has shaped up now,” says  the  well-informed source.

This  is not the first time that Karan Johar and his protégé Tarun Mansukhani have had creative differences.  Way back in  2009, Karan greenlit Mansukhani’s Dostana 2 with Abhishek Bachchan, John Abraham and  Katrina Kaif. But the  project was  put on indefinite  hold and finally shelved, as Mansukhani could not come  up with  a  satisfactory  script.

Drive which was  to release  in  2017 was pushed  to March 2018.  That date too was postponed. The  film is unlikely to meet its current release date in September  2018.

For Sushant Singh Rajput, this would be a setback as even his other big release, Kedarnath which was to feature Saif Ali Khan’s daughter Sara, has been caught up in delays and controversies. However, now the problems have been sorted and hopefully it will release smoothly.
