Chehre: Amitabh Bachchan, Emraan Hashmi Starrer to Release in Theatres on August 27

Chehre, the Hindi film starring actors Amitabh Bachchan and Emraan Hashmi, is all set to release in the theatres on August 27. The film marks the first collaboration of the two actors.


Directed by Rumy Jafry, the mystery-thriller was earlier scheduled to have a theatrical release on April 9 but was postponed due to the ongoing pandemic.

The film also features Annu Kapoor, Krystle D’Souza, Dhritiman Chatterjee, Raghubir Yadav, Rhea Chakraborty, and Siddhanth Kapoor.

Chehre deserves a grand release. There was no doubt in my mind that this was a film meant for a theatrical release. Chehre is not just thematically strong, but has a certain grandeur that deserved the immersive magic of the big screen,” co-producer Anand Pandit said in a statement.

He also added that he insisted on a theatrical release because he wanted to express solidarity with exhibitors and theatre owners who have gone through untold hardships during the pandemic.

Chehre is produced by Anand Pandit Motion Pictures and Saraswati Entertainment Private Limited.

Director Rumy Jafry said, “We are excited that our film is getting a theatrical release because the way it is shot and the efforts we have taken in terms of the production and post-production can only be appreciated in cinema halls. Also, I assure the audience that it will be beyond satisfying to watch Amitabh ji and Emraan together on the big screen for the first time.”

Maharasthra, which contributes to a high percentage of box revenue in the country, is yet to receive permission from the government to open theatres. However, states like Delhi have permitted cinema operations and filmmakers have begun announcing the release of their films on the big screen.


Recently, actor Akshay Kumar too announced that his film Bellbottom will get a theatrical release on August 19. The espionage thriller was originally scheduled to release in April this year but was postponed to July 27 due to the ongoing pandemic, and later to August 19.
