Ishaan Khatter, Ananya Pandey to star in Khaali Peeli
The 'edgy romance' is directed by Maqbool Khan and produced by Ali Abbas Zafar
Ishaan Khatter and Ananya Pandey will star in the upcoming romance, Khaali Peeli. The film is produced by Ali Abbas Zafar and directed by Maqbool Khan. Set in Mumbai, Khaali Peeli is said to be a “young, edgy roller-coaster ride that kick-starts one night when a boy meets a girl.”
Vishal-Shekhar have come on board to compose the music for this film, which will go on floors on September 11.
About how the project came together, Ali says, “Khaali Peeli’s process has been organic — Maqbool, Himanshu and I worked on the script for almost a year and when we thought it was completely baked, we took it to this enthusiastic young cast. I am happy that Zee Studios is producing this film with us, apart from another other massive film we are working on. We will announce our next big collaboration soon as well.”
Shariq Patel, CEO, Zee Studios adds, “We at Zee Studios are delighted to partner with Ali as he commences his journey as a producer. This is the first of many. It’s such an exciting script with tremendously promising talent attached to it.”
Khaali Peeli is set for release on June 12, 2020.
Ishaan Khatter made his Bollywood debut last year in Dhadak. He had previously starred in Majid Majidi’s international venture, Beyond The Clouds. Ananya Panday, on the other hand, commenced her acting career with Student of The Year 2. Her upcoming release is Pati Patni Aur Woh.
