Directed by Rumy Jafri, Chehre is a mystery thriller that also features Krystle D’Souza and Rhea Chakraborty
Emraan Hashmi is sharing screen space with the legendary actor Amitabh Bachchan for the first time in Chehre, the mystery thriller directed by Rumy Jafri. In a recent interview, Hashmi talked about his experience about acting with Bachchan, calling it “surreal and scary”.
Talking about working with Bachchan in the film, the actor told Zoom, “He is very giving as an actor and extremely disciplined. And when you have such a giving actor, who has a large heart, I think that enhances your performance and makes you more confident in the scene.”
Hashmi also says that he has learnt discipline from the legendary actor, as Bachchan would show up for reading to discuss characters and would finish his eight-hour shifts even in extreme cold conditions.
Chehre hit theatres across the country on August 27, and will be just the second movie following Akshay Kumar-starrer Bell Bottom to have a theatrical release in the country after the screens have reopened.
Chehre is bankrolled by Anand Pandit under the banner of Anand Pandit Motion Pictures. The movie has music by Vishal Dadlani and Shekhar Ravjiani while Binod Pradhan is the cinematographer.
The thriller, noted for having both Bachchan and Hashmi in the leading roles, also features Krystle D’Souza, Rhea Chakraborty, Siddhanth Kapoor and Annu Kapoor. Bachchan’s look from the posters and trailer also caught the eyes of the fans, with the actor sporting a brooding look, even accompanied by a long white beard.
