Chhichhore won the Best Hindi feature film prestigious awards at the 67th National Awards 2021 on Monday, March 22, 2021. Well, this is an indeed proud moment for the entire team of Chhichhore. The movie was directed by Nitesh Tiwari starring late actor Sushant Singh Rajput, Shraddha Kapoor Tahir Raj Bhasin, Prateik Babbar, Naveen Polishetty, Tushar Pandey, and Saharsh Kumar Shukla in the pivotal roles. The storyline of the movie was based on the life of college students which highlighted a powerful message of giving value to life.
Chhichhore was the last theatrical release of Sushant before his demise. The late actor was quite appreciated for his role in the movie wherein he played the role of a college student and later an understanding father to his son who tries to commit suicide under societal pressure.
Actor Tahir Raj Bhasin was quoted saying, "I feel incredibly grateful to have played the part of Derek and been a part of Chhichhore. It will always be a special film to me. Nitesh Tiwari and Sajid Nadiadwala captained this ship, and it was an ace team to have been on. The film was about never allowing society to decide if you are a winner or a loser but fighting the very notions of these labels and finding your own happiness."
The actor further added saying, "I feel so rewarded that we’ve been recognized by country’s highest award for the film. This definitely makes all the work that went into creating it, worth it, and the film even more special to all of us. As we celebrate our big win, today will also be a day of remembrance and gratitude for Sushant without whom this story would never have been told."
