Chehre starring Amitabh Bachchan and Emraan Hashmi released today. Directed by Rumi Jafry, the movie has been receiving a mixed response. Chehre also stars Rhea Chakraborty, Sidhanth Kapoor, and Krystle D'Souza. Prior to the release, Rhea Chakraborty's absence from Chehre's posters grabbed a lot of attention. And in a recent interview, Rumy spilled the beans on Rhea's absence.
Talking to Outlook, he said, "She is there in the trailer and she is very much there in the film. It is her bad luck that she has got trapped in a controversy. She is not there in the poster I admit, but Siddhant Kapoor is also not there in the poster, but nobody said anything about that. Had we shown Rhea on the poster, then also people would have said that by showing her we want publicity for the film."
He added, "There was a promotion plan that was made much ahead of Rhea Chakraborty's (earlier) controversy. The film was locked way before the pandemic. She plays a very important role in the film. So not a single frame of the film where she is there is cut or added. Her performance is brilliant in the film. This is going to be one of her major projects."

Ahead of the film's release, Rhea took to Instagram and wrote, "Take a minute and say 'Thank you. Thank You'. Gratitude is powerful."
Rhea made headlines after actor Sushant Singh Rajput's demise. She was dating the actor. The actress was accused by SSR's family for misappropriating his funds and more. However, she denied all the allegations made against her.
