The Chehre producer Anand Pandit is glad that the trailer reveals that Rhea had not been obliterated from the film’s publicity or for that matter, from the film.
“She is an integral part of Chehre. I am completely supporting Rhea,” says Anand Pandit.
Adds director Rumi Jafrey, “Rhea was always meant to become a part of the promotions a little later. How can she be left out?”
However Rhea didn’t have a major role to begin with in Chehre. And she is as visible in the trailer as she would have been before all the controversies regarding Sushant Singh Rajput’s death.
“We can’t increase her visibility to prove any point,” says Rumi.
Rumi is glad the trailer has been liked. “We have worked hard to make it a unique thriller. It is acompletely original film, not adapted from any source.It was my dream to direct Bachchan Saab.I am glad it happened in a film where he is cast like never before.”
No songs to break the thriller mood?
Rumi avers, “There is one song which however is placed in the background as part of the story. I learnt very early from the great Mr B R Chopra and his brother Yash Chopra not to use songs in a suspense thriller. In B R Chopra Saab’s Humraaz all the hit songs were placed in the first-half before the suspense started in the second-half. And In Yash Chopra Saab’s Ittefaq there was no song at all.”
Rumi Jafrey sees Chehre in the genre of Humraaz and Ittefaq. “It is going to take the audience by surprise.”
