The team of Chehre recently shared the poster of their upcoming film and surprisingly it also saw the absence of actress Rhea Chakraborty who has been making it to the headlines for some time now. The Jalebi actress was arrested for her alleged involvement in the Sushant Singh Rajput, drugs case, and was released on bail after spending 28-days in prison.
The development in her upcoming film has left a mark upon her career as Rhea is nowhere to be seen in the poster which prominently features, Amitabh Bachchan, Emraan Hashmi, even Annu Kapoor and Bengali actor Dhritiman Chatterjee. The recent snub comes as a major setback for the actress as she quietly planned on making a comeback to the films this year.
A SpotboyE report quoted Rhea’s close friend who revealed that she had never in her wildest dreams anticipated this snub.
“Not even in her wildest dream had Rhea anticipated this snub. 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,” said the actresses close friend.
The report further pointed out how Rhea has taken this blow and questions the cropping of Rhea Chakraborty from the ‘Chehre’ poster.
Rhea’s friend further explained, “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.”
Meanwhile, friends and well-wishers in the film industry are questioning if her role will be cut from Chehre or would she be spared at least that indignity.
The most surprising part of this snub is director Rumi Jaffrey’s silence in the matter. Rumi is known to be a close friend of Rhea and had supported her at a time when the entertainment industry kept mum.
Reveals a source, “Rumi Jaffrey had no say in the matter. He was not consulted about the date of release of Chehre. Or about Rhea going missing from the poster.”
