Ananya Panday will be seen opposite Dhadak star Ishaan Khatter in Khaali Peeli and the duo recently shot a high-octane action sequence for the movie.
The elaborate action sequence designed by action director Parvez Shaikh, was to be filmed on the lead pair and antagonist Jaideep Ahlawat. While director Maqbool Khan suggested using body doubles for the stunts, Ananya and Ishaan insisted on performing it themselves.
A source reveals, “The scene required Ishaan to jump off a huge pick-up vehicle and slide through 30 meters on the ground. Since there was a possibility of getting injured, Parvez wanted a body double to execute it. Ishaan and Ananya practiced extensively for the scene before filming it. In the 10-day shoot, Ishaan also filmed a long chase sequence in the narrow by-lanes of Wai.”
Maqbool Khan added, “It’s amazing to work with such professional talent whose infectious energy pushes the entire team. It’s been a rigorous few days in Wai where we shot powerful action sequences over 10 days. They have done some crazy stunts!”
Produced by Zee Studios, Ali Abbas Zafar and Himanshu Kishan Mehra, Khaali Peeli will release on June 12, 2020.
