Ananya Panday and Ishaan Khatter had the internet buzz after the first poster of Ali Abbas Zafar's production Khaali Peeli dropped. Both Ishaan and Ananya on the poster flaunted their toned abs and sculpted bod with a kaali peeli aka a taxi! Talking about why Ali Abbas Zafar chose Ishaan and Ananya for his film, a source revealed, "Since the Maximum City-centric film is a fresh take on the romantic genre and revolves around young people, Ali was keen to cast actors who are a big draw with youngsters. Both Ishaan and Ananya have impressed with their first films but have not worked together so it's a new jodi as well."

And just when everyone was excited about Ishaan and Ananya sharing screen space for the first time, the makers upped the excitement by raking in Raazi actor Jaideep Ahlawat to play a desi villain in the movie. Jaideep was also seen in movies such as Gangs of Wasseypur and Raees, and after Raazi, we cannot wait to see him pull off a negative character. Jaideep who believes that the role is different from what he has done till date, said, "It's a challenging villain, and quite different from what I have been doing so far. I hope to do justice to the part and I am looking forward to work with these young talents."

Even Ali also revealed why Jaideep was the perfect choice for the movie, he said, "It's a performance-driven film. We zeroed in on Jaideep because he is an incredible actor. He perfectly fits the bill of the strong negative character, which is the quintessential Indian villain. He plays a significant part in the story."

Helmed by Maqbool Khan and to be produced by Ali Abbas Zafar, Khaali Peeli is slated for release on 12th June 2020.
