Optimistic about the new year, director Rumi Jaffery is looking forward to the release of Chehre. The Amitabh Bachchan and Emraan Hashmi-led thriller will see Rhea Chakraborty return to the big screen after a tumultuous 2020. Following a probe by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB), the actor was arrested in September 2020 on drug-related charges in the Sushant Singh Rajput case and was granted bail in October, after she spent 28 days in Byculla Jail.
The director, who recently met Chakraborty, believes the worst is behind her. “I am confident she will get through this phase. Everybody around will advise you to be brave, but only the one going through [the ordeal] knows how difficult it is.
