Reports over the past few weeks have suggested that the film, starring Ananya Pandey and Ishaan Khattar, will be released on the OTT platform due to a theater shutdown and lockdown. Now responding to this, producer Ali Abbas Zafar broke the silence.
It has been almost 3 months since the theaters were closed due to the spread of coronaviruses and lockdown restrictions have been implemented in India. While most Bollywood films in the current scenario have opted for the release of OTT, the film starring Ananya Pandey and Ishaan Khattar seems to have been waiting for that. Ishaan and Ananya’s action dramas were released directly on the OTT platform, with producer Ali Abbas Zafar responding for the first time.
In an interview with Mumbai Mirror, Ali responded to the news of her direct release on the OTT film of Khali Peeli starring Ishaan and Ananya. Ali, who is producing the film with Zee Studios, shared that the film is not finished yet. Ali stated that although the main parts of Khali Peeli have already been filmed, there are still some left and for that, they are waiting for the film to be completed. When this is done, the filmmaker-producer says they will wait and reopen the theaters.
Commenting on the OTT release of the film starring Ishaan and Ananya, Ali said, “Right now, we are focused on completing the film. After that, it will wait and see. We do not know when the theaters will open and in what capacity. “Also, when talking about the film, Ali said it was a commercial film and praised Ananya and Ishaan’s energy during its shooting.” It is interesting to add a commercial potter boiler and a refreshing pair of Ishan and Ananya. They brought a lot of youthful energy to the shoot. Everyone had a blast and it shows in the editing. ”
Meanwhile, amidst the epidemic, Ananya and Ishaan are spending time at home. While Ananya is sharing updates about her shenanigans on social media, Ishaan is also resorting to such a practice. Filmmaker and producer of Khali Peeli, Ali Abbas Zafar is working on the script at his home in Dehradun. Apart from Ananya and Ishaan’s Khali Peele, Ali has recently announced that she will be launching a superhero film with Katrina Kaif as the lockdown. Not only that but in another interview, Ali mentioned that he is planning a superhero universe with two more characters and Katrina’s superhero movie with Mr. India. Meanwhile, Khali Peeli starred by Maqbool Khan while Ananya and Ishaan played the lead roles.
