Varun took to twitter and released the first video look of his upcoming film ‘October’, which is essentially a love story. Film stars Varun, Rohit Sukhwani, Pragya Shrivastava and newcomer Banita Sandhu. It is essentially a love story of Varun and Banita which is set in some kind of mountains which serves as a wonderful visual for the film. October is directed by Shoojit Sircar whose last film Piku starring Deepika Padukone and Amitabh Bachchan got all the love in the world and good box office.
Shoojit and Varun will be working together for the first time and Shoojit is not exactly known to make love stories before but nailed every genre he has worked on. Trailer took back shots of Varun standing under the beautiful leaves while Banita just sitting by the window accompanied by mesmerizing background score from AR Rahman himself. Shooting of October was finished way back in November and makers are now working on the post production. This is the first ever official look of the film and later more trailers and songs will be released.
Varun Dhawan is known to market his films to the zenith and Valentine’s day is the appropriate day to come out with a teaser which smells of romance from a million miles away. Oddly enough Varun himself has never been a part of a novelish love story which looks like October and this can very well be the one he is looking for. October could served as a good detox after Judwaa 2 which Varun gave to audience in the name of over the top comedy and hamming his heart out. His career needs a few sensible ones which could bring back the credibility he lost after Judwaa 2 but he sure gained a lot of box office from that film as the film was mostly dependent on his stardom.
