On the film, Rumy said that Amitabh Bachchan always believed in his talent and told him to go ahead and work on the subject and promised that he will be part of the film. The actor kept his word.

We wish Rumy a speedy recovery and hopes he gets back to work soon.

Chehre also stars Emraan Hashmi and Rhea Chakraborty in pivotal roles. The film went through a lot of backlash, scrutiny as it featured Rhea. In a recent interview with Bollywood Bubble, producer Anand Pandit said, “As far as Rhea is concerned, she is an actress and she has done a fantastic job in our film. Then why we had to bother about what is happening in her personal life. We cannot combine these two things. They are two separate things. It’s unfortunate that in her personal life, she has gone through a lot of turmoil and all our sympathy is with her. But because of that our film will gain or face loss, or we will get traction, I don’t think so.”
