The filmmaker speaks on the success and how he was always positive about Chhichhore. He says, “Chhichhore always had our conviction.

It’s been a commendable journey for both of us.”
The movie has been receiving tremendous response from across ages and Sajid himself has been getting calls to which he said, “Nitesh & I have been getting in numerous calls from various countries where people are just telling me how they’re related to the film & each character. Most of them have connected back to their college buddies and I am glad we could do that through our film.
When quipped about his college buddies he said, “Oh! Yes, my friends from college with whom I had lost touch have called me after watching the film and told me how they’re able to relate to the film. In fact, we are also planning a reunion film and we will probably end up watching Chhichhore together (Laughs). I am a very emotional person, I can’t hold back. I have cried while watching the film so many times for my sons first & then remembering my golden days during college life.”
