Make way for a new couple in town. Oh sorry, let's be more specific, make way for a new 'onscreen' couple in town as it is official that Ishaan Khatter and Ananya Panday will come together for the first time for Khaali Peeli. Earlier, there were reports saying that Ananya has landed a meaty role in acclaimed director Ali Abbas Zafar's first production venture. Though nothing much has been revealed about the said project, it was also said that Ishaan has also be roped in for the same. Well, looks like the film is finally happening and the rumours have turned out to be true. Today, the makers announced the arrival of the film by sharing the first look poster of the two. Going by this picture, we are curious to know what's there in the store for us. The film is produced by Bharat director Ali Abbas Zafar and directed by Maqbool Khan. The shooting of the film will go on floors from Sept 11, 2019, and will hit the big screens on June 12, 2020.

Locking their eyes with each other, the duo is seen leaning on a taxi which seems like it is on the sets of the film.
