If you were looking forward to seeing Amitabh Bachchan and Emraan Hashmi share the screen space for the first time, you will have to wait a little longer as the release date of their much-awaited film Chehre has been postponed yet again.

Initially, the mystery thriller was set to hit the marquee on 21st February, but then the makers postponed it to April 17. Pushing the release date further, the makers have locked 17th July as the new release date of the movie. The decision has been taken on a special request from filmmaker Shoojit Sircar and producer Ronnie Lahiri, the makers of another Amitabh Bachchan starrer Gulabo Sitabo.

Confirming the development, producer of Chehre Anand Pandit says, “Yes we have moved Chehre to 17th July, upon a special request from the makers of Gulabo Sitabo. We have always had a fantastic association with Shoojit Sircar and Ronnie Lahiri, and seeing as it was mutually beneficial to not only all of us to give a good release window to these exciting movies, but also to Mr Bachchan’s fans, we decided to now release Chehre on 17th July!”

Producer Lahiri of Rising Sun Films also confirmed the same, “Our film was ready and we were keen to release it in April. We share a great rapport with Mr Anand Pandit and as the Chehre shoot was going on, we humbly requested him if we could release Gulabo Sitabo in April and he was gracious and kind enough to push the release date of Chehre.”
