Although we've mostly seen actor Varun Dhawan play the sweet, chocolate boy in his movies, he is also known for experimenting with his roles. Varun showed us his dark side in the brilliantly made 'Badlapur', and this time the actor will be embracing his dark side all over again in Shoojit Sircar's 'October'. The movie also marks the debut of Banita Sandhu who has been paired opposite Varun.
In an interview with a leading daily, Varun revealed, "Both these films might be in different spaces, but October isn’t a light-hearted romantic film. It’s heartbreaking and dark, probably more niche than Badlapur."
Talking about the film, a source further revealed, "This film is dark and he won’t have any makeup. It’s going to be very real. It’s one of the things Varun likes about the film. Shoojit (Sircar) has designed his character really well."
Earlier while speaking about 'October', director Shoojit Sircar had said, "It is a genre that I have always wanted to delve in. While love and romance have been entwined with Indian cinema, there is abundance in that emotion that everyone can have their own interpretations of. Juhi Chaturvedi and I have always tried to create stories from the reflections of real life moments that we see around us. October is another effort to explore those moments out of simple situations of life."
Varun, on the other hand, said, "I have been an ardent fan of Shoojit da's work and have always wanted to work with him. October is a beautiful story in which I play a character with many layers. It's a difficult character to play. I just want to surrender to my part and show people a new side of me. Shoojit da, Ronnie and Juhi have always made good cinema I feel I feel grateful to join their team."
So, are you excited for the movie? Stay tuned for more updates.
