- Banita has reportedly worked with Shoojit Sircar in various commercials
- October goes on floors this month
- Varun Dhawan is now prepping for the release of Judwaa 2
Of casting Banita in October, Shoojit Sircar told Hindustan Times, "Everybody loved Banita in a commercial that I had directed. While I was shooting the ad film, Juhi (Chaturvedi, writer) and I were also working on the script (for this film). So, one day, I clicked a picture of Banita and sent it to Juhi saying, 'She has the potential to fit into the character that we are looking at'."
Here's the picture which Varun previously posted.
October is Varun Dhawan's first film with Shoojit Sircar, who has made movies like Vicky Donor, Madras Café and Piku. "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 (Lahiri) and Juhi have always made good cinema I feel I feel grateful to join their team," Varun earlier said.
Varun Dhawan is now prepping for the release of Judwaa 2.
