Filmmaker Nitesh Tiwari, who delivered blockbuster Dangal starring Aamir Khan, said on Saturday that he is happy with audience response to his new film “Chhichhore”, but he doesn’t think much about how much money the film will earn.
Asked who is the real ‘chhichhore’ among his film’s cast, Nitesh Tiwari said: “I have just observed chhichhoras and I have told their stories through my film, but I feel real chhichhoras are these guys (film’s cast) and the people who lived with me in hostel for four years.”
Tiwari confirmed he plans to host a special screening of the film at a suburban Mumbai mall for his college friends.
