Big B announced his association with Chehre by sharing a picture with his co-star Emraan Hashmi and the film's director Rumi Jaffery and the producer Anand Pandit in 2019. The film was earlier slated to release on February 21, 2020. However, its release was shifted due to the coronavirus pandemic and the nationwide lockdown last year.
The thriller has been written and directed by Rumi Jaffery, who has helmed films like Gali Gali Chor Hai and Life Partner among others. He also directed the 2008 film God Tussi Great Ho, starring Salman Khan and Priyanka Chopra, in which Amitabh Bachchan had an extended cameo.
Amitabh Bachchan was last seen in Shoojit Sircar's Gulabo Sitabo, co-starring Ayushmann Khurrana. The film released on Amazon Prime Video and it opened to largely positive reviews. He was also seen hosting the 12th season of the TV quiz show Kaun Banega Crorepati 12. The actor's upcoming projects include Ayan Mukerji's Brahmastra, co-starring Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor. He will also be seen in the sports drama Jhund.
