Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan’s film Chehre is finally set to release. The film will hit the theatres on August 27. Earlier, it was scheduled to release on April 9. The film also stars Emraan Hashmi, Annu Kapoor, Rhea Chakraborty, and others.
Producer Anand Pandit on the postponement said, “I have always lived by the maxim of ‘safety first. Given the rising number of COVID cases, it is only right that we delay the release of ‘Chehre’. Audiences have already showered the trailer with a lot of love. Since every member associated with ‘Chehre’ wants cinema lovers to watch it on 70 mm. We are ready to wait for the right time and ensure that our audiences remain safe.”
Amitabh Bachchan announced the new release date with a teaser video. he wrote, “CAUTION You have been warned! Be ready to #FaceTheGame, kyunki yeh ilzaam aap par bhi lag sakta hai #Chehre, releasing on 27th August in cinemas near you.”
Producer Anand Pandit said, “There was no doubt in my mind that this was a film meant for a theatrical release. I have grown up watching blockbusters in theatres. And to watch Mr. Bachchan on the big screen in one of my productions would be beyond thrilling. This is also my 51st production and I wanted to make its release, a special occasion. The film will now release all over the world on 27th August and I couldn’t be happier.”
Amitabh Bachchan has also recited a poem written by director Rumi Jaffery for Chehre. “He is a perfectionist and everything he does. Be it a small movement before the camera, an action sequence, or just be silent, he gives the moment his all,” said producer Anand Pandit.
