Rumi Jaffrey, the writer and director, has made it clear that the actress Rhea Chakraborty will not be doing any media to promote ‘Chehre’. In the movie, Rhea shares the screen with Amitabh Bachchan and Emraan Hashmi. The film was shot just before Sushant Singh Rajput, her boyfriend, passed away. Rumi told that “Abhhi woh apne haadse se nikal hi rahi hai…She’s just getting out of her trauma”.
Chehre director says that he had never thought that Rhea Chakraborty would turn out to be a controversial part of the movie. Rumi told, “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”.
He said about Amitabh Bachchan as “He will surprise you. His passion for creating new characters breaking fresh grounds 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 much I still have to do with him”.
The date has not been fixed for the theatrical release of the film, ‘Chehre’ as Anand Pandit, the producer, has went to see his newborn grandson in the States. The release date of the movie will be announced once he returns.
