Emraan Hashmi reveals a 46-year-old connection with his ‘Chehre’ co-star, Amitabh Bachchan
Emraan Hashmi is gearing up for his first ever collaboration with mega superstar Amitabh Bachchan in ‘Chehre’, which went on floor on Friday (10th May). The first look of Big B from the film is out already and we must say its very impressive. Interestingly, Hashmi revealed about a 46-year-old special connection with Big B.
Mr Bachchan and Emraan will share the screen space for the first time in the mystery thriller ‘Chehre’. While we have already got to see the first look of Big B from the films, Hashmi’s official look for the film is yet to be unveiled. Emraan who recently kick-started shooting for the film, coincidently discovered about the 46-year-old connection with the senior Bachchan on his second day of the shoot.
Revealing about the connection, the ‘Why Cheat India’ actor shared that his grandmother Purnima Das Verma had portrayed the role of Big B’s mother in his iconic film ‘Zanjeer‘ (1973). Notably, Hashmi shot for his first scene with Big B on Saturday (11th May), the exact day when ‘Zanjeer’ was released 46-years ago.

An uncanny coincidence : yesterday was my first scene with Mr Bachchan and in the course of our conversation just realised that yesterday was also 46 years of #zanjeer a film in which my grandmom played a small role as his mother. 😁
‘Chehre’ is helmed by Rumi Jaffrey and produced under the banner of Anand Pandit Motion Pictures and Saraswati Entertainment Pvt Ltd. The film is set to hit the screens on February 21, 2020.
