The film ‘Khaali Peeli’ was announced in August last year, starring Ananya Pandey and Ishaan Khatter. First look posters of the film were also shared and left everybody intrigued. However, as reported Ali Abbas Zafar’s film might get a digital release due to the coronavirus pandemic situations.
As reported in Mid-Day, a source revealed that Zafar is keen that the shoot should be wrapped up at the earliest so that he can pursue a digital premiere of the film. Another source from the production team quoted to daily, “We have a few sequences remaining to be shot with Ishaan and Ananya. Director Maqbool Khan intends to film the portions around August 20 and is in the process of zeroing in on an indoor studio for the two-day shoot. The post-production work on the action thriller has been going on in full swing in the past few months.”
The source further revealed, “Khaali Peeli is a typical masala entertainer. Ali sir has initiated talks with streaming platforms for its direct-to-web release.” Zafar confirming to the news said, “We will be shooting in adherence with the safety guidelines. The film is otherwise edited and ready.”
