Bachchan had previously shared his character's look, with a beret and loose coat, in May. Emraan sported a fur coat, and was seen seated inside a dimly-lit room in his first look, shared in June. Later, Rhea also revealed her first look from the film. In the image, she is seen wearing a black kurti, and sitting in what appears to be a film set, lit with numerous floodlights. From the looks of it, light and darkness seem to play an important role in Jaffrey's suspense thriller, since the images see the protagonists enveloped in darkness.
Chehre is produced by Anand Pandit Motion Pictures and Saraswati Entertainment Private Limited, which has been at the forefront of successful cinematic ventures such as Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2, Sarkar 3, Satyamev Jayate, Baazaar, and the recent blockbuster Total Dhamaal.
The film was earlier slated to release on 21 February, 2020 alongside Ayushmann Khurrana's quirky comedy Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan. However, according to the new developments, Chehre has been moved a couple of months ahead and will now hit cinema theaters on 24 April, 2020.
