Speaking with a leading daily, Krystle said, "I didn't sleep all night before we were to shoot my portions with him. That was the one day I wanted to look super fresh but I was not being able to sleep. I just tossed and turned all night. To add to that, my mom wanted to come on set. My mom never comes on set! More than being pressurised to act in front of Amitabh ji, I think I was more pressurised acting in front of my mother. She was literally starring at me."

"I was very nervous and the only thing I didn't want to do was fumble over my lines. I had memorised my lines well as I didn't want to mess up in front of Amitabh Bachchan ji. But he didn't make me feel like that. He made me feel like even if I mess up, it's fine. He made me feel so comfortable like I am a part of the film, a part of the industry," she added.

Chehre also features, Emraan Hashmi, Annu Kapoor, Rhea Chakraborty, Dhritiman Chatterjee, Raghubir Yadav, and Siddhanth Kapoor. The film, directed by Rumy Jafry, has been produced by Anand Pandit Motion Pictures & Saraswati Entertainment Private Limited.
