2020 is definitely going to be exciting as the veteran – Amitabh Bachchan and the dynamic – Emraan Hashmi will be sharing the screen space for the first time. The duo will be working together in Rummy Jafry’s directorial Chehre. The intriguing noir drama/mystery thriller is an Anand Pandit production.
Chehre, which was earlier to release in April, will now release on July 17, 2020. This is done on a special request from Shoojit Sircar and producer Ronnie Lahiri, makers of Gulabo Sitabo.
Producer Anand Pandit speaks on the new release date,
“Yes we have moved Chehre to 17th July, upon a special request from the makers of Gulabo Sitabo. We have always had a fantastic association with Shoojit Sircar and Ronnie Lahiri, and seeing as it was mutually beneficial to not only all of us to give a good release window to these exciting movies, but also to Mr Bachchan’s fans, we decided to now release Chehre on 17th July!”
Producer Ronnie Lahiri of Rising Sun Films confirms the same,
“Our film was ready and we were keen to release it in April. We share a great rapport with Mr Anand Pandit and as the Chehre shoot was going on, we humbly requested him if we could release Gulabo Sitabo in April and he was gracious and kind enough to push the release date of Chehre.”
Chehre also features Rhea Chakraborty, Siddhanth Kapoor, Drithiman Chakroborthy, Krystle Dsouza, Raghubir Yadav with Annu Kapoor.
While the other details around the film are heavily under wraps, initial reports suggest it is a crisp and engagingly thrilling drama based on the legal profession, with Bachchan and Hashmi facing off against each other in pivotal roles.
Releasing on July 17, Chehre is produced by Anand Pandit Motion Pictures & Saraswati Entertainment Private Limited and directed by Rummy Jafry.
