Earlier reports suggested Kriti was asked to exit the project due to her starry tantrums. The report further stated that the makers were trying to make changes according to her demands, however, in the end, it didn't work out.
However, Kriti later 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,’’ she had said.
Meanwhile, Chehre is scheduled to be released on April 24. It also features Rhea Chakraborty, Siddhanth Kapoor, Drithiman Chakroborthy, Raghubir Yadav and Annu Kapoor.
