Filmmaker Nitesh Tiwari, who shot to fame after the earth-shattering success of his last directorial venture Dangal (2016) with Aamir Khan, has started shooting for his next film, titled Chhichhore. To be produced by Sajid Nadiadwala and presented by Fox Star Studios, the mega-budgeted project was announced a couple of months ago with Sushant Singh Rajput playing the male lead in it.
Yesterday, Sajid Nadiadwala’s production house, Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment, tweeted from their official handle, “SajidNadiadwala’s #Chhichhore directed by Dangal fame, @niteshtiwari22 & presented by @foxstarhindi goes on floors today! @WardaNadiadwala.”
Director Nitesh Tiwari also took to his twitter handle and announced the commencement of the shoot. “Today is a special day as the shooting of my next film #Chhichhore starts. Thank you #SajidNadiadwala and @foxstarhindi for joining me in this new and exciting journey. @NGEMovies.”
Fox Star Studios, the studio presenting the film, wrote on their official Twitter handle, “#SajidNadiadwala and Fox Star Studios present #Chhichhore, directed by the man behind Dangal, @niteshtiwari22. Shoot begins today. Stay tuned for more! @NGEMovies”
Talking about the star cast of the movie, so far only Sushant Singh Rajput has been confirmed. As far as the female lead is concerned, many names, including Kriti Sanon and Shraddha Kapoor, have been thrown around in the past few months, but the makers are yet to announce any name officially. However, if sources are to be believed, actress Shraddha Kapoor might bag the female lead. If that happens, it will mark the first collaboration between Kapoor and Sushant Singh Rajput.
Chhichhore is set to hit the silver screen on August 30, 2019.
