October in April, directed by Shoojit Sircar and starring Varun Dhawan and Banita Sandhu is going to be released on October 13 2018. The first look of the movie was also released, as was announced by Varun Dhawan himself on his twitter account. The 10 seconds teaser doesn’t reveal anything substantial about the movie, or its story line, but is mostly a series of snap shots about the actors in the valleys. The scenery looks very beautiful indeed. Dhawan, who is know more for his leading man roles, seems to have chosen a little different project this time. He has previously done critically acclaimed movies like Badlapur, and this will be another new direction for the flamboyant actor.
Shoojit Sircar has directed some of the best acclaimed movies of the decade, from Piku, to Pink and Vicky Donor. His films skew Bollywood story lines are more about the daily lives and times of normal people. Banita Sandhu is a relative unknown, and it will be interesting to see their pairing on screen. The movie has become one of the most anticipated projects by the fans of Varun Dhawan and the general audiences who like to see something different on screen or like Shoojit Sircar’s movies.
Varun has already achieved great success in the industry since his debut in Student of the Year in 2012. His Judwa 2, became the highest grossing movies of last year, even though it was critically panned. He has also maintained a very diligent fan following that has made every movie of his a box office success. October in April is seemingly a little different movie for him, but with the support of a director like Shoojit Sircar, this will probably be another gem in his filmography and show people that he can do both mainstream and parallel screen acting.
