The trailer of Amitabh Bachchan and Emraan Hashmi’s “Chehre” was released on Thursday. Much was said and speculated when actor Riya Chakraborty was not seen in the poster and teaser of the upcoming thriller. With her appearance in the trailer released yesterday, the film’s producer Anand Pandit finally spoke on the controversy.
Chehre is Rhea’s first release after the tragic demise of her boyfriend, the late actor Sushant Singh Rajput.
Addressing the controversy, Anand told Zoom TV that there was no question of Rheanot being in the film. He further added that she was an integral part of the film. He concludes by saying that he doesn’t believe in getting swayed so easily.
Sushant’s family accused Rhea of abetting suicide and keeping the Dil Bechara actor away from his family. The actress denied all charges, but spent nearly a month in custody on drug-related charges last year. She was subsequently released on bail.
Directed by Rumy Jafry, the film also stars Annu Kapoor, Dhritiman Chatterjee, Raghubir Yadav, Krystle D’Souza and Siddhant Kapoor. The film is all set to hit theaters on April 9.
