The song, ‘Makhna’ from the new Netflix Film, Drive, which stars Sushant Singh Rajput, and Jacqueline Fernandez has been released.
The first song from Sushant Singh Rajput and Jacqueline Fernandez’s long-delayed Netflix film, Drive, is finally out. And hands down, it was worth the wait. The makers are yet to release the trailer. The song, titled ‘Makhna’, doesn’t drop any hints at what the film holds in store. ‘Makhna’ is a fresh, fun-loving number showing a group of friends going that are off to a beach vacation.
“When you are going to watch the film, you would not know what is going to happen next.” Sushant Singh Rajput
The interesting camera work bags attention as the actors are seen holding a selfie stick in order to capture their candid moments. The song is what a perfect beach vacation with friends looks like. This soothing number has been penned by Ozil Dalal, Tanishk Bagchi and sung by Tanishk Bagchi, Yasser Desai, and Asees Kaur.
The film was initially supposed to release in theatres around Holi this year but was later moved to September 7. Bringing an end to the long delay, the makers have finally decided to release the film on Netflix on November 1.
Co-produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions and Fox Star, the film has been directed by Tarun Mansukhani. Tarun had made his successful directorial debut with 2008 film Dostana starring Abhishek Bachchan, John Abraham and Priyanka Chopra.
The first look of the film was released in March 2017 and showed Sushant and Jacqueline standing together with their back to the camera. Announcing the beginning of a franchise, Karan had written in the caption, “The FRANCHISE FUN begins….DRIVE directed by @Tarunmansukhani starring @itsSSR and @Asli_Jacqueline starts today!!The first of the series!”
Moreover, talking about the film, Sushant had once said, “That’s a heist film. When you are going to watch the film, you would not know what is going to happen next.” It also stars Boman Irani, Pankaj Tripathi, Vibha Chhibber, Sapna Pabbi, and Vikramjeet Virk.
This is the first project where Fernandez and Rajput will be seen together. Rajput, who was last seen in Chhichhore alongside Shraddha Kapoor, will also be seen in Dil Bechara. Meanwhile, Fernandez will be next seen in Kick 2. She is also making her digital debut with Netflix thriller Mrs. Serial Killer.
