Directed by Tarun Mansukhani and staring Jacqueline Fernandes, Sushant Singh Rajput, Boman Irani, Pankaj Tripathi, Vibha Chhibber, Sapna Pabbi, and Vikramjeet Virk, the film is described as a “fun action heist” movie.

“At Netflix, we want to be a home for films across genres that delight our viewers in India and around the world,” said Srishti Behl Arya, Netflix’ director International Original Film, India.

“As we rapidly build our diverse film catalogue, we are excited to work on our first ever film with Dharma Productions and bring Drive to Netflix. It is a complete entertainer led by a brilliantly talented cast and crew and is filled with foot tapping music and pulse-pounding action and drama. We can’t wait for our members globally to enjoy it.”

Dharma Productions’ Karan Johar added: “Our vision for Drive was to make a film that elevates the genre of action-heist films. With nail biting chases and action sequences, fronted by a spectacular cast, Drive combines the best of Bollywood storytelling with international production quality. I’m thrilled to partner Netflix once again in bringing this incredibly fun film to millions of fans of the action genre around the world.”

Karan’s Dharma Productions recently signed a multi-year original content deal with the subscription video-on-demand (SVOD) platform. Johar has also directed a tale for its Ghost Stories anthology series, produced by Ronnie Screwvala’s RSVP.
