The film’s Wikipedia page says “The story is about two childhood sweethearts Pooja and Blackie who gets separated due to certain circumstances when they were kids. Pooja, who is now a prostitute, decides to escape the brothel on turning 18, with a bag full of stolen money. She bumps into Blackie who is now a very ‘chalu’ Bombay taxi driver. He agrees to ‘drive’ her to freedom, in exchange for a hefty amount. This leads to a series of chase and escape – with the goons on Pooja’s trail and the cops on the goons’ trail.
The movie Khaali Peeli also stars some other talented actors like Jaideep Ahlawat and Satish Kaushik in prominent roles. More details regarding the film will be out soon.
