Nitesh Tiwari dedicated the award to Sushant and he also called him “an integral part” of the film. “Sushant is an integral part of our film. He made us proud. We are dedicating this award to him,” he said.

This year in March when the National Awards were announced, Nitesh had told Indian Express, “It comes as a pleasant surprise actually. We weren’t expecting it at all. We are filled with mixed emotions because on one hand there is the happiness of getting a win and on the other hand there’s the feeling of loss of someone I was very close to. But I am sure Sushant would be very happy with this win wherever he is”.

Sushant was very much raved for his performance in Chhichhore. He passed away on June 14, 2020.
