Sajid Nadiadwala dedicates National Award to SSR
The National Awards were announced last year, but it was today that the winners were presented and handed over the prestigious certificates. Sushant Singh Rajput starrer Chhichhore was one of the films to win the award and it was a heartbreaking moment for fans that the actor wasn't there to receive the honour! He had passed away last year in June. Sajid Nadiadwala earlier today proved that he truly is a man with a golden heart. The producer received the National Award for his film Cchichore that won Best Hindi Film and dedicated the award to the late Sushant Singh Rajput.
His heartfelt gesture was embraced and lauded by the late actor’s fans who showered him with massive appreciation and gratitude. Headlined by Sushant Singh Rajput and backed by an incredibly talented ensemble star cast Cchichore directed by Nitesh Tiwari was the most loved film of that year and even received five nominations at the 65th Filmfare Awards –Best Film, Best Director for Tiwari, Best Story, Best Dialogue and Best Editing. Nadiadwala and Grandson took to social media to share the words and feelings of Sajid Nadiadwala as they wrote, "A Moment of Pride for all of us at NGE today as we’ve received the prestigious National Award for #Chhichhore! Thank you @niteshtiwari22 for this special movie!
We’re really grateful for all the love & dedicate this award to #SushantSinghRajput ♥️

The film scored high on many accounts and apart from the great performances, also resonated with Indian families as it highlighted that the journey is far more important than the destination and that losing is as critical a life lesson as winning.
On receiving the 67th National Film Award for Best Hindi film, producer Sajid Nadiadwala thanked the entire team involved in the making of Cchichore and especially dedicated the award in the loving memory of Sushant Singh Rajput, one of the finest talents to come out from India.
There is a lot in store from the producer in the coming months. Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment recently announced the theatrical release dates of their upcoming roster of films including Tadap, Bachchan Pandey with Akshay Kumar, 83 with Ranveer Singh and Heropanti 2 with Tiger Shroff.
