Shoojit Sircar on Varun Dhawan: "I had a different perception all together"

Shoojit Sircar on Varun Dhawan:

October is directed by Shoojit Sircar whose last film Piku was highly appreciated by almost everyone who went to see it which is the same response he gets for all of his films including Vicky Donor and Madras Cafe. Orbiting the life of an extravagant hotel's housekeeper named Dan, the film paints a one-sided romance between him and his co-worker Shiuli before the story takes an astounding turn that takes the story towards an unusual route.

Varun Dhawan graced the trailer launch of his first outing with Shoojit Sircar, also starring debutante Banita Sandhu.

He said, "I think it's true".

Zooey Deschanel leads cast of Disney's Beauty and the Beast in Concert
Zooey Deschanel has been cast as Belle in an upcoming live concert performance of " Beauty and the Beast ". He's "harbored jealousy of every actor who ever played Gaston", and now is so grateful to have his turn.

"I need the film more than anyone else in the room at this point of time in my career", said Dhawan. It would be better the more money you invent on films and script. October seems to be a hardcore romantic film and Varun's character looked devastatingly in love with his lady in the poster.

Varun Dhawan once again impressed everyone with his performance in the upcoming film "October". While Student of The Year, Badlapur and Badrinath Ki Dulhania attained the Super-Hit verdict, Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania and Judwaa 2 were termed as box office Hits. I remember being very jealous of Ayushmann Khurran, who had done Vicky Donor with Shoojitda. I said, "As usual, I check my phone, I post things on social media". In an interview with a leading tabloid, Shoojit Sircar revealed how Varun prepared for his role in "October".

The film is slated to release on April 13 this year.
