After Squad's Rinzing Denzongpa and Malvika Raaj, it's now the turn of young stars Ishaan Khatter and Ananya Panday to shoot an action-packed sequence for their upcoming film, Khaali Peeli (2020). The leads were filming the second schedule of the film in Wai, Maharashtra with Jaideep Ahlawat who plays the antagonist.

Action director Parvez Shaikh had set up an elaborate action sequence to be shot with all three of them. Director Maqbool Khan wanted stunt body doubles for the sequence, but Khatter and Panday insisted on performing it themselves.    

According to a source, Khatter had jump off a huge pick-up vehicle and slide through 30 meters on the ground. Shaikh too wanted body doubles to perform the scene, as there was a chance of injury. Both Khatter and Panday practiced extensively for the scene before filming it. Khatter, who plays a taxi driver, also had to shoot a long chase in Wai's narrow bylanes.

Khan said of the young co-stars, "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 is due to be released on 12 June 2020.
