The much-anticipated film Chehre, which was earlier scheduled to release on 9th April, has its release date pushed to a later date. The film which stars Amitabh Bachchan and Emraan Hashmi in the pivotal roles will no longer be releasing soon. This decision has been taken by the makers of the film keeping in mind the rising number of COVID-19 cases in the country.
Film critic Taran Adarsh took to his social media to announce the news and the official statement by the makers. It read, "AMITABH - EMRAAN: #CHEHRE RELEASE PUSHED AHEAD... #Chehre - which was scheduled for release on 9 April 2021 - has been postponed... A fresh date will be announced later... Stars #AmitabhBachchan and #EmraanHashmi... OFFICIAL STATEMENT…"
The official statement reads, "Due to the rising cases of COVID-19 and new guidelines for cinemas, we are unable to release our movie Chehre on 9th April and have decided to postpone until further notice. We have received an overwhelming response to our trailer and we are grateful for all the love and support. We have decided to bring Chehre to audiences theatrically when the environment is more conducive for the experience. See you in cinemas very soon, until then stay safe and healthy! Cover your Chehre with a mask and don't forget to use sanitiser. Team Chehre."
