Khaali Peeli starring Ishaan Khatter and Ananya Panday in the lead roles is one of the much-awaited films. The duo has already been in news for their typical Bambaiya looks. Their complete makeover to get under the skin of the characters has made Ishaan and Ananaya the talk of the town. And more than that, the director of the film, Maqbool Khan wanted them to adopt the colloquial style of speaking of Bambaiya Hindi and for that they were trained for two months with dialogue coaches to perfect the language.
The director in an interview with the entertainment portal said,"It was important that we stay true to the narrative; here, the city is not a mere backdrop but a quasi-character. Ishaan and Ananya worked for months with dialogue coaches to get their twang right. When you see them in the film, you will believe that he is a taxi driver, and she, a girl on the run. Their diction gave a touch of realism to the film."
The film also features Jaideep Ahlawat and Satish Kaushik.
Produced by Himanshu Mehra, Ali Abbas Zafar and Zee Studios, Khali Peeli was set to hit the theatres on June 12. However, as theatres continue to remain shuttered due to the coronavirus pandemic, its release has been stalled.
