The film is directed by Maqbool Khan and produced by Ali Abbas Zafar.
“It’s always challenging to play a typical Hindi film villain- something different from what I have been doing, I hope I do justice to the written part and I am looking forward to work with this young talent,” Jaideep said.
Speaking about the casting, Ali shared, "It's a performance-driven film and we decided to handpick Jaideep because he is an incredible actor. He perfectly fits the strong negative character in the film who is a typical Indian traditional villain. He plays an important and significant part of the film, we look forward to working with him.” Khaali Peeli went on floors on Wednesday and is set to release on June 12, 2020.
