Due to the ever-increasing coronavirus cases in the country, several filmmakers are putting a stop/delaying the release of their films. Recently, Bunty Aur Babli 2, Haathi Mere Saathi, Flight and a few other films have been postponed due to the coronavirus. And now, joining the league is Emraan Hashmi, Amitabh Bachchan's Chehre. Yes, you read that right. The mystery-thriller movie's release date has been indefinitely postponed due to the rising COVID-19 cases. Emraan Hashmi took to his Twitter handle and shared an official statement by the team of Chehre. It read thus, "The well-being of our very own audience is of utmost importance to us. We are extremely humbled by the love and support that we have received this far. See you in the cinemas soon. Until then, stay safe! - Team #Chehre.
The statement of postponing of Chehre's release read, "Due to the rising cases of COVID-19 and new guidelines for cinemas, we are unable to release our movie Chehre on 9th April and have decided to postpone until further notice. We have received an overwhelming response on our trailer and we are grateful for all the love and support. We have decided to bring Chehre to audiences theatrically when the environment is more conducive for the experience. See you in cinemas very soon, until then stay safe and healthy! Cover you Chehre with a mask and don't forget to use sanitizer." Have a dekko at the statement here:
