But the delay kept on going until the speculations of the film being put on the backburner became stronger. While talking about the film's delay, Sushant Singh Rajput in an interview said, "I have the same question. If you know, please let me know. Till then, I'll drive carefully. By the way, I want to add something. I'm really happy about something about Drive. In two states, there were floods last year. All the money I got from Drive, I gave it away for that cause. So, if it doesn't release, I'll feel no guilt because I've already given away all that money for a good cause."
In the film, he plays a car mechanic who is also a getaway driver. He donated Rs one crore to Kerala after floods hit the state in August 2018. Sushant Singh Rajput also gave Rs 1.25 crore to Nagaland when the region was devastated with floods.
