Ananya Panday and Ishaan Khatter both were gearing up for their third release Khaali Peeli. The actors were just two days away from wrapping up the film when the lockdown was announced in the country.
Now according to a report in a leading daily, the makers of Khaali Peeli are planning to complete the shooting of the film in August. And producer Ali Abbas Zafar is eyeing a digital release. A source stold the 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 added, “Khaali Peeli is a typical masala entertainer. Ali sir has initiated talks with streaming platforms for its direct-to-web release.” Looks like yet another film is set to have a digital release. Guess with the opening of theatres still uncertan, the digital route remians the best option for filmmkaers to release their films.
