He is like Amitabh Bachchan when it comes to professionalism”: Chehre Director On Emraan Hashmi

Amitabh Bachchan and Emraan Hashmi starrer Chehre is all set for a theatrical release on August 27. The film’s release had been postponed multiple times due to the ongoing pandemic. “The film was supposed to release last year. We have waited for a long time to release it in the theatres. But hopefully, we will be able to do it soon. Right from the time we conceptualised it, we have been shooting keeping in mind that the film will have a theatrical release. With all the gripping dialogues, background score, songs and everything, it would be an absolute treat for the audience to watch Chehre in theatres. Our producer Anand Pandit and Amitabh Bachchan were also of the view that since we have made the film for the theatres, it will release in the theatres only,” director Rumy Jafry told ETimes.

The filmmaker also spoke about the unusual pairing between Amitabh Bachchan and Emraan Hashmi.

“After we finalised Amitabh Bachchan for Chehre, we started looking for other actors. I was looking for the second lead and Emraan fit right into the character I had envisioned. Even though I had never worked with him before, I had heard a lot about him in the industry. He is truly like Amit ji when it comes to professionalism – dedicated, hardworking and allows nothing to interfere with his work. He is very involved in the work he does. I wanted somebody just like him. When I approached him with Chehre, he too loved his character and was happy to come on board. Emraan’s work has turned out to be even better than I expected,” he said.
