The daily reported their source as saying, “See Chehre has well-known names in its cast like Amitabh Bachchan and Emraan Hashmi. But apart from them the film also features Rhea Chakraborty. Now given the scenario over the past couple of months anything remotely related to Rhea has been making headlines.” There are no two ideas about the audience being drawn towards a movie that features Rhea or has got anything to do with her name after the SSR case that remained the biggest conversation in the country after the coronavirus.
