Actress Shivaleeka Oberoi, who is making her debut in Yeh Saali Aashiqui (2019), will star in Khuda Hafiz (2020) opposite Vidyut Jammwal as his love interest. The action love story, directed by Faruk Kabir, is already full swing in production.

The actress is currently shooting for the film in Uzbekistan. "I am really thankful to Kumar Mangat ji for showing faith in me. It’s wonderful to be working with an actor of Vidyut's caliber and experience. I am learning a lot and it's a role very different from what I have portrayed in my first film which makes it all the more challenging," the young actress said in a statement.

Oberoi has signed on to her second film even before the release of her debut with another newcomer Vardhan Puri, the grandson of late actor Amrish Puri. In the film, she and Puri play college classmates who meet up years later in less than welcome circumstances. Before becoming an actress, Oberoi was an assistant director on Kick (2015) and Housefull 3 (2016).

Yeh Saali Aashiqui is due to be released on 22 November.
