Ali Abbas Zafar, who directed multiple block busters like Sultan, Tiger Zinda Hai and Bharat among others, has joined hands with Zee Studios to co-produce Khaali Peeli, directed by Maqbool Khan, slated to release on June 12, 2020.
Set in the maximum city, Mumbai, Khaali Peeli is a young, edgy roller-coaster ride that kick-starts one night, when a boy meets a girl. The audiences' excitement is bound to soar as this edgy, young film will bring Ishaan and Ananya Panday together for the first time on the big screen. What's more? The makers have roped in Vishal-Shekhar to compose the music of the film. The film will go on floor on September 11, 2019.
Elaborating on the long-term association with Zee Studios, Ali Abbas Zafar commented, “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 the other massive film we are working on. We will announce our next big collaboration soon as well.”
Shariq Patel, CEO, Zee Studios shared, “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 the film. Exciting times ahead!”
Director Maqbool Khan added, “I can't wait to start this ride with this young talent!”
Produced by Zee Studios, Ali Abbas Zafar and Himanshu Kishan Mehra, Khaali Peeli starring Ananya Panday & Ishaan will release on June 12, 2020.
