The Jalebi actor had shared her first look from the movie in July 2019, a year before she was embroiled in the controversy surrounding her boyfriend, Sushant Singh Rajput’s death.
According to a report in Bollywood Hungama, Rhea is upset after being cropped from the Chehre poster.
A close friend of Rhea Chakraborty told the entertainment portal, “After all that she had gone through in 2020 she was somehow trying to piece together her life again…only to be rudely awakened to this. She is not welcome in Bollywood, it seems”.
“After what she went through, do you think this snub would shatter her? Not at all. She has fought many hurdles during the last year. She would fight this one too,” she said further.
Rhea Chakraborty faced severe backlash from SSR fans on social media after the late actor’s sudden demise. During the investigation, Rhea was alleged to be part of a drug syndicate that supplied drugs to the late actor. She was also arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) in September 2020 and stayed in police custody for a month.
Talking about the film, Chehre will hit the theaters on April 30. The film was scheduled to release in July 2020 but was pushed due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Directed by Rumy Jafry, the film also stars Rhea Chakraborty, Drithiman Chakroborthy, Raghubir Yadav, and Siddhanth Kapoor.
