The makers of Ishaan Khatter- Ananya Panday’s upcoming film Khaali Peeli unveiled the official trailer of the film today (September 22, 2020). The film marks the directorial debut of Maqbool Khan, and is backed by Tiger Zinda Hai director Ali Abbas Zafar.
Ananya Panday essays the role of a young woman who is on the run after stealing a bag of valuables. She takes over Ishaan Khatter’s taxi, and soon, the duo enter a deal where they decide to share the booty. However, with the cops and a kohl-laced eyes and pathani suit clad villain (Jaideep Ahlawat) tailing them, the duo have nowhere to hide. What follows next is a mad ride in a ‘khaali peeli’ and lots of ‘dishoom-dishoom’! It is also hinted in the trailer that Ananya and Ishaan’s characters are childhood sweethearts.
