India, March 24 -- As Chhichhore (2019) won the best Hindi film honour at the 67th National Film Awards announced on Monday, actor Tahir Raj Bhasin feels "incredibly rewarded".

"It has been a while since the film released. Of course I am not counting 2020 at all, none of us want to remember that year. This really comes as an icing on the cake. What makes this special is that very few times in your career you get to be a part of a film that is a box office smash hit and is appreciated by critics and gets a National Film Award. This is one such rare project for me to be a part of," he shares.

Bhasin, who played the role of Derek in the Nitesh Tiwari-directed film, however says he would miss celebrating the win with late actor Sushant Sing...
