The makers have roped in Vishal-Shekhar to compose the music of the film
Bankrolled by Ali Abbas Zafar and Zee Studios, 'Khaali Peeli' was scheduled to hit the theatre on June 12. However, it was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Co-producer Ali Abbas Zafar had said the team chose Ahlawat because he was an apt choice to play the villain in the film.
"It's a performance-driven film and we decided to handpick Jaideep because he is an incredible actor. He perfectly fits the strong negative character in the film who is a typical Indian traditional villain. He plays an important and significant part of the film, we look forward to working with him," Zafar had said.
