Chehre director, Rumi Jafry recently talked about Rhea Chakraborty being part of the movie and if the events from last year will affect the viewership of the movie. Jafry also said that he has ‘utmost respect’ for those who stood up for her after the backlash she faced and was put under the microscope by the media. Rumi also said that while Rhea Chakraborty was called a ‘witch’ last year after the death of her boyfriend and actor Sushant Singh Rajput, she was named the ‘most desirable woman’ as well.

In an interview with ETimes, Rumi said that Rhea’s personal life controversy should not affect Chehre in any manner, he said, “I don’t think the film will suffer because of Rhea’s personal life controversy. I will admit that I felt it would have affected the film, had it released last year. Everyone knows what a furore the media caused with the whole Sushant Singh Rajput case and Rhea’s arrest.”

The director further said, “Last year, she was a ‘witch’, a ‘golddigger’ and whatnot; this year she was declared as the ‘most desirable woman’. This shows there has been a change in the perception of people. So, I really don’t feel the film will have an adverse effect because of what happened with Rhea last year”.

Talking about Rhea’s role in the movie, Jafry said that the actress has done complete justice to the movie, “Rhea is a great human being. She comes from a good family. When you will see her in ‘Chehre’, you will see how good an actor she is. She has a very different role in the movie. She has done complete justice to the role.”

Chehre has been scheduled for an August 27 release in theatres and the movie stars Amitabh Bachchan and Emraan Hashmi in lead roles.
