And Now, A Sequel to Chehre




The pandemic may have punctured  the intended impact  of the  new  Amitabh  Bachchan starrer Chehre. But producer Anand  Pandit’s spirits remain high.

“It’s a  film we  all believed in . It is a creation we all are proud of specially  so since it showcases  the histrionics  of  India’s greatest star-actor(Amitabh  Bcahchan) who  both my director Rumi Jaffrey and I idolize,” says  Pandit passionately.

And yes, there  is a sequel on the anvil.

Revealing  plans  of carrying the  suspense thriller forward Anand Pandit says,  “I am open  to the  idea of a sequel, and we  are  looking  for  a suitable story .”

Adds director Rumi  Jaffrey, “We  always  planned it  as  a story that can be taken  forward,That’s why  we’ve opted for an  open ending.”

Reacting to  Chehre seriously underperforming  in theatres Rumi says, “It was always a risk. But a risk worth taking. We as  a team support the save-our-cinemas  movement. We were ready to face  the losses.”

Chehre is Mr Bachchan’s second  release  since the  pandemic. The  first, Shoojit Sircar’s  Gulabo Sitabo in  2020  was  an  unintelligible  exercize in intellectual selfindulgence released  on OTT. Chehre is far more comprehensible   to the  average  viewer  and likely to be  released on the digital  platform in a month’s time.

The  other  pandemic release Bell Bottom is already  scheduled to release  on Amazon this  month.
