Life does not end when one fails in an examination or task said Chhichhore's director Nitesh Tiwari

The film aims to prevent suicide among students. Director Nitesh Tiwari says Chhichhore motivates people to not end their lives when faced with failure in examinations.

Shraddha Kapoor and Sushant Singh Rajput's film is a roller-coaster ride filled with emotions, making it one of the most relatable movies ever. The film also stars Varun Sharma, Prateik Babbar, Tahir Raj Bhasin, Tushar Pandey, Saharsh Shukla, and Naveen Polishetty in pivotal roles, who reunite decades after their college lives end. Directed by Nitesh Tiwari, who has earlier helmed Dangal, Chhichhore released on September 6, 2019.
