While the entire Film industry might be on hold, directors and showrunners are using all resources at hand to ensure that the projects which were already in the pipeline at least manage to release.
One such movie is Ananya Panday and Ishaan Khatter’s Khaali Peeli which is estimated to release on 2nd October 2020 – on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti.
While there are rumors that theatres would soon begin again, there is a higher likelihood of Khaali Peeli being one of the first movies to release. The reason for its early release is thought to be the readiness of the movie. The movie is said to be almost ready with just a day’s shoot remaining.
However, since there happens to be no clarity on the theatre scenario at the moment, the makers of the movie have decided to resort to the OTT platforms.
The teaser of the movie dropped in yesterday and it gave audiences a sense of what to expect from the movie. From the looks of it, Khaali Peeli seems to be a total Masala movie, or as the audiences like to call it ‘total paisa vasool’.
The film seems to be as typically a Bollywood movie as it can be. The film looks for a Gandhi Jayanti release however, Zee studios will most likely release it on their home grown platform exclusively.
Status of the movie
There are just some minor bits of the movie yet to be shot and will require a maximum of two days to wrap up the shoot. Ananya and Ishaan are to shoot the final scenes in the first week of September, and the shoot will be concluded in Mumbai with complete adherence to safety guidelines.
