On the occasion of Valentine’s Day, the makers have released a glimpse of the film which they are calling it as a feeler. Directed by Shoojit Sircar, October will launch a new face Banita Sandhu.
Varun Dhawan in a recent statement said: “First of all, October is not a clichéd love story, which is very new for this generation. I’m not going to say it’s a happy love story or a sad love story, but it is something very new and something I want to do.”
On his chemistry with Banita, Varun said she holds a very special place in his heart.
“Banita holds a very special place in my heart. And it’s forceful. She is very young, and you know, she let me protect her from the bad world out there. She is young and has less fear. Her mindset… She knows clearly about what she wants, and she is such a brilliant girl,” said Varun.
The actor, who made his Bollywood debut with Karan Johar’s Student Of The Year along with Alia Bhatt and Sidharth Malhotra, went on to feature in films like Main Tera Hero, Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania, Badlapur, Badrinath Ki Dulhania and Judwaa 2.
Talking about how he keeps his calm after experiencing stardom at such a young age, Varun, son of filmmaker David Dhawan, said: “I never actually prepared for stardom or deal with it.
“The most important thing is that I want to be an actor, I want to be on screens and do films and I am getting to do that. And today being an actor doesn’t only mean that you are being an actor in one country because of other digital mediums. Audiences are all over the world as everyone can enjoy your song/films online,” he said.
