Actor Kriti Kharbanda on Friday said she is no longer part of Amitabh Bachchan and Emraan Hashmi starrer Chehre primarily due to date issues.

There have been reports that Kriti had a fallout with the producers of Chehre and hence she is not part of the film.

At a special screening of her recently released film Pagalpanti on Friday, Kriti clarified she is not doing Chehre due to date issues.

"Unfortunately, I have left the film and we have mutually decided that I will no longer be a part of that film. Shooting of the film was supposed to begin in August-September but then it got pushed to October-November.

"And I already had commitments for Housefull 4 and Pagalpanti so unfortunately there was nothing that I could do to change my dates," Kriti told reporters here at the special screening.

Few days back, the producer of the film - Anand Pandit's production house Anand Pandit Motion Pictures, issued a clarification on social media, stating, "In the light of recent media reports, we wish to clarify that @kriti_official and @apmpictures have mutually agreed to part ways on a cordial and professional note. We wish her success in all her future endeavours."

Chehre is directed by Rumy Jaffery and is slated to release on 24 April 2020.

Talking about her film Pagalpanti, Kriti said she is happy with the response to the multistarrer comedy film.

"The film is made with the purpose of entertaining people and no other intention except entertainment," Kriti said.

"The response to the film has been good and I am hearing only good things. I am really happy," she added.

The special screening of Pagalpanti was organised by Kriti and her co-star Pulkit Samrat.

The two are set to collaborate for another film called Taish by Bejoy Nambiar.

"This film is completely the opposite of Pagalpanti and we are not paired opposite each other," Kriti said.
