Corona cases are increasing rapidly. Its impact is also being seen on Bollywood, due to which the release of many films has been postponed. Earlier, the release of Amitabh Bachchan-Emraan Hashmi starrer film Pyaar was also being speculated, but due to Corona, a lockdown has been put in many states and theaters have also been closed. In view of the current situation, there is no option other than to get the films released on OTT in front of the makers.
There is also a similar film ‘Faces’. The first face was scheduled to be released this month, but the release has been postponed due to Corona and the makers have refused to release it on OTT. Bollywood producer-distributor Anand Pandit told that we have given 100% of this film and we want to release it in theaters. Releasing the film to the theater is not less than a challenge, not just because of business, but also from the perspective of marketing.
The film faces Amitabh Bachchan, Emraan Hashmi, Anu Kapoor, Krittal D’Souza, Drishman Chatterjee, Riya Chakraborty in the lead roles. The film was set to release by the makers on March 30, which has been extended to April 9.

Talking on Riya Chakraborty, Anand Pandit told the Indian Express, ‘I don’t see any main reason for including his name in it. He is one of the eight artists of the film. We signed him long ago and he has completed his part well. Therefore, we see them as doing good work. I do not want to take undue advantage of them for the benefit of my film. So we released the second poster of the film, in which his name was not mentioned. She is going through a lot of turmoil in her life, and we do not want to add more difficulties. We took her in the film only when she was comfortable.
