After multiple delays owing to the covid-19 induced lockdown, Amitabh Bachchan, Emraan Hashmi, Raghubir Yadav and Rhea Chakraborty are finally gearing up for the theatrical release of their film ‘Chehre’.
the releasing date is not confirmed
The film that was slated for a 2020 release, was held back owing to the closure of cinemas around the country. As lockdown restrictions ease and the films line up for their big-screen release, the makers of the thriller have picked a tentative release date.
Sources close to the production tell us, “The team was actually hoping for an April release initially, but then August was settled on. Now, the discussions are favouring an August 27th or September 3rd release.”
Apart from an official statement on the same, fans waiting for this thrilling tale will also be treated to a second trailer that is expected to drop soon.
It was rumoured that the film directed by Rumi Jafry was headed the OTT way. However, contrary to reports, producer Anand Pandit confirmed that the team decided to wait out the pandemic and give the audience the big-screen experience.
Speaking about the OTT vs theatre release, leading man Emraan said in an interview with ETimes, “Just when we thought we were out of the woods, it hit back even harder. We have no option but to wait it out. Eventually, it will be the producers’ call where and how they plan to exhibit Chehre.
We’re all hoping and wishing for normalcy to return, which seems a little distant right now. Even when theatres eventually open, it will take a while for the audience to start rolling back to them. In such a time, the producers will decide whether they want to wait for an opportune theatrical window or release Chehre on digital directly.”
The film will also have Bachchan lending his voice to recite a poem penned by the film’s director and set to the tunes of music composers Vishal-Shekhar who joined forces with an orchestra for the same.
