However, the Bollywood version of the movie, Drive will have a slightly different story than the original Hollywood flick. Drive (2019) will bring Sushant Singh Rajput and Jacqueline Fernandez together as Samar and Tara for the first time. This new film has a different storyline from the original adaptation, but the theme will remain the same. This Bollywood film’s story is based on how a group of people come together to pull off the heist of the century at India’s most secure location – The Rashtrapati Bhavan. To help them ace this unthinkable task, they will be joined by two highly skilled street racers, Bikki, an artist who paints cars and Naina, the master criminal. The film is expected to have high octane races, car chases and a power-packed climax.
