Shoojit Sircar’s October trailer has come like a fresh breath of air with its breezily intriguing storytelling. It stars the fresh fairing of Varun Dhawan with debutant Banita Sandhu and has everyone talking about it. While Twitter is flooding with high praises for the October team, Varun’s close friend Arjun Kapoor has a little extra love to shed.
In complete awe of the trailer, the Gundey actor had the sweetest things to say about the filmmaker’s storytelling and Varun’s performance: “Simple & intriguing @ShoojitSircar s films have always given me Hope that there is something good out there left in the world #October is no exception…@Varun_dvn tu bada ho gaya my brother so genuine honest and pure can’t wait fr 13th April”
Speaking about his choice of actors for October, director Shoojit Sircar had earlier told TOI, “When it comes to the genre of romance, it is always beautiful to see a fresh pairing. Something about seeing their chemistry blossom through the reels of the film, makes you feel a part of their journey from the very beginning. For ‘October’, that was one of the main reasons why I chose Banita for the lead role opposite Varun.”
Talking about his experience of working with Shoojit, Varun said, “Dada (Shoojit) asked me what do I do when I wake up. I said, ‘As usual, I check my phone, I post things on social media’. Then he asked me not to do that, and instead observe a plant for 10 minutes. I started doing that and felt a huge change. I unlearned a lot…It was a very different experience.”
Written by Juhi Chaturvedi and produced by Rising Sun Films, October is slated to release on April 13, 2018.
