The Writer-Director of Chehre Rumi Jaffrey confirms that actress Rhea Chakraborty will not be promoting the movie. The director says, “Abhhi woh apne haadse se nikal hi rahi hai…She’s just getting out of her trauma,” The film was shot with Amitabh Bachchan and Emraan Hashmi just before her boyfriend Sushant Singh Rajput passed away.
Rumi revealed that never thought Rhea would become such a controversial part of Chehre. “To be honest, she doesn’t have that much to do in Chehre. So those who go to see my film in the hope of getting a good look at Rhea are in for a disappointment. The main focus of interest is Bachchan Saab and Emraan’s jugalbandi. Their interaction is what gives the film its tense appeal.”
As for Bachchan Saab “He will surprise you. His passion for creating new characters, breaking fresh ground in every film, are very much on display in Chehre. Most directors want to work with Bachchan Saab, so they will have his name on their biodata. But I want to work with him again to show how much I still have to do with him.”
No date has been finalised yet for the theatrical release of Chehre. The producer of the movie Anand Pandit has gone to the United States to see his newly born grandson. The release date will be announced when he returns. The movie stars Amitabh Bacchan and Emraan Hashmi and Krystal Dsouza in pivotal roles.
