Rhea doesn’t have much to do in Chehre: Rumi

The director of the film, Rumi Jaffrey, spoke in an interview and clarified that Rhea won’t be promoting the film as she is dealing with trauma she suffered last year.

In an interaction with Spotboye, Rumi Jaffrey also said that people shouldn’t expect to see a lot of her in the movie. He said, “To be honest, she doesn’t have that much to do in Chehre. So those who go to see my film in the hope of getting a good look at Rhea are in for a disappointment. The main focus of interest is Bachchan Saab and Emraan’s jugalbandi. Their interaction is what gives the film its tense appeal.”
