Sushant Singh Rajput, Varun Sharma, Shraddha Kapoor, Prateik Babbar, Tahir Raj Bhasin, Naveen Polishetty and Saharsh Shukla starrer Chhichhore has hit theaters. Helmed by Dangal fame Nitesh Tiwari, the film oscillates between the present and the past of its lead characters. It is a story of seven college friends who, after having a gala time during their student life, reunite in their older days.
Nitesh Tiwari’s wife and film director Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari shared how her husband wanted to make a film on his college life for almost 10 years. In an Instagram post, she wrote, “This #chhichhore of mine had a dream for almost 10 years to write a story on his campus life. I have heard many from the time I have known him. Almost a PHD 😷 Am so happy that this rather quiet man has a theda, funny side and he is finally making it happen. Excited and nervous. Experience his passion for storytelling and a piece of all our hearts in cinemas on 6th September.”
Also, Aamir Khan loved the trailer of Chhichhore. Sharing Aamir’s response, Nitesh Tiwari had earlier said, “He (Aamir Khan) loved it. He was laughing. At the same time, he also got emotional towards the end of the trailer.”
Chhichhore has been produced by Sajid Nadiadwala.

Chhichhore: Our take
Sushant Singh Rajput, usually a dependable actor, cringingly struggles here both as a college student and a grieving father. As his ex-college mate and now former wife, Shraddha Kapoor has only so much to do.

Director Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari shared how her husband Nitesh Tiwari and his team have been working on Chhichhore for the last two years. She wrote, "I have seen Nitesh and his teams journey working patiently for the past two years on #Chhichhore and all i can say as his partner and fellow director creative people most of them i know (actors. Directors, even producers) don’t think of anything else than the film first. Numbers come later. Of blurry late nights. Roller coaster rides. Conversations. A journey of fears. Faith and a dream that the stories we tell reach an audience that smile and cry with joy. Movies are not projects. They are piece of our being. A way to touch as many humans and we only hope that it reaches many hearts for a long time. Tomorrow the journey of the makers becomes yours. Hope you savour each and every moment dear audience and cinema lovers."
