Updated: May 24
A kaali peeli is a black and yellow taxi in Mumbaiyya parlance. Khaali Peeli refers to a phrase that means for no rhyme or reason. Well Khaali Peeli is the intelligent title of the forthcoming Ishaan Khatter and Ananya Panday film which is a remake of Vijay Deverakonda Telugu film Taxiwala is now stuck with just a day of shooting in abeyance. The film produced by Ali Abbas Zafar has been directed by Maqbool Khan.
“It was a song shoot which was the last schedule of the film. Ananya had completed a shoot with Vijay Deverakonda for the Puri Jagannadh film and was shooting a song with Ishaan when the film got stuck due to the lockdown. Now they only have one day of work left and they can only start when it is allowed and then both Ishaan and Ananya will have to get back into their old looks, lose weight in case they have pout on some during lockdown among others so tha the continuity stays,” say sources.
Ishaan Khatter thankfully wrapped the shoot and the dubbing for his six-part series for BBC based on A Suitable Boy for director Mira Nair and which will first stream on BBC One. The series also has Tabu in the lead role.
