This has left the actress of the film, Shraddha Kapoor feeling emotional. A close source shares, “It’s sweet because the film is very close to her heart and she is happy that in the fond memory of her co-star, Sushant Singh Rajput, the film will be watched again. But on the other hand, it makes her emotional as he is not there to celebrate this moment with the cast, crew and share this happiness with them. Shraddha always reminisces the time spent with Sushant on sets of Chhichhore”
Chhichhore opened to immense love and appreciation from all quarters. Critics, audiences, everyone lapped up the film which centred around a group of close knit friends reminiscing their college days, with a loud message for a young teenager to live life with a never say die spirit. Sushant and Shraddha played the high school sweethearts who get married and have a son, who attempts to take his own life by succumbing to academic pressure. Taking the viewers on an emotional journey and yet leaving a smile on everyones face at the end, the film has a beautiful script.
