Zee Studios co-produced ‘Khaali Peeli’ to release in June 2020
MUMBAI: Ali Abbas Zafar, who directed films 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 12th June 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 film will bring Ishaan and Ananya Panday together for the first time on the big screen. The makers have roped in Vishal-Shekhar to compose the music of the film. The film will go on the floor on 11th September 2019.
Elaborating on the long-term association with Zee Studios, 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.”
Zee Studios CEO Shariq Patel 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!”
