An ill-gotten bag of gold and cash will be shared by a cab driver (Ishaan Khatter) and his fare (Ananya Panday). The romance between them is inevitable, unfolding through Mumbai lingo calling each other shaani and ulta-kopdi, (the cab’s number plate is 6969, make of that what you will) as is a villain (Jaideep Ahlawat) who is gunning for their lives. This is black and white territory of hero-heroine-villain, full of fiesty drama.
The film that has come under the radar for its casting, and its lyrics. Even its release was shrouded in mystery. It is confirmed that Khaali Peeli will premiere on Zee Plex on October 2nd for ₹299. This is separate from a Zee5 subscription, it’ a pay-per-view model, similar to what Ram Gopal Varma has been doing with his films during the pandemic.
Khaali Peeli is directed by Maqbool Khan, produced by Himanshu Kishan Mehra, Ali Abbas Zafar, Zee Studios, and written by Sima Agarwal and Yash Keswani.
