It has been three days since the release of Ananya Panday and Ishaan Khatter's Khaali Peeli and the masala entertainer seems to have grabbed a lot of eyeballs in the north of India. With restrictions much eased in Delhi and NCR region as opposed to Mumbai, the film premiered and was screened over the weekend at a drive-in cinema in Gurugram. Owing to the pandemic, one would assume people would stay indoors, but to everyone's surprise the drive-in cinema was a huge hit. 

As per trade analyst Komal Nahta, the drive-in theatre was completely sold out. He tweeted, "This should come as music to ears of filmbuffs & industry people, but as bad news for those who predicted Bollywood doom. 6 shows of Khaali Peeli in a make-shift Drive In cinema in Gurgaon in weekend are all sold out. One yesterday, two today and three tomorrow. At 999/- per car."

LMAO what do you mean by “it did terrific in India!? How? Based off of one tweet which shows a small drive in theater?? What nonsense! The film has tanked globally, including India! India does not equal one small make-shift drive in theatre in Gurgaon Pinkvilla! How much were you paid for this fake PR?

This movie is pathetic. The actors are totally falthu useless. Bandar and bandariya are not good looking no talent and doubt they will go very far. Gym jao, weighloss, plastic surgery, but no acting lessons. Ridiculous.

Look at the future of Bollywood— Hindi film industry had meenakumaris,madhubala, and now we are stuck with a Ananya Pandey who has neither acting chops nor the looks. Please Bollywood nuff is enough.

Best example of nepo is this ananya. No personality, no acting skill, no beauty , no figure nothing. But connections with filmy families, chamcha of karan gang and bestie with shahrukh’s daughter can make any faaltu into an actress and dump on indian public.

Ananya is really good. She looks cute and pretty, she has a charm, she has a funny yet cute personality and her acting is amazingly excellent and with every film it improves. And she is a very sweet person. Yes she is a product of NEPOTISM and have filmy connections but that doesn't mean she is not good. And what is this chamcha and gang? She's a Dharma kid and KJO knew him already so they're nice with each other. U paid bot spreading hate on sweet young girl.
