- October is a love story written by Juhi Chaturvedi
- "Always wanted to work with Shoojit Sircar," said Varun Dhawan
- Varun Dhawan's Judwaa 2 releases in September
Varun Dhawan, who is excited about working with Shoojit Sircar for the first time, said. "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."
Shoojit Sircar, who has directed Vicky Donor, Madras Cafe and Piku and also produced Amitabh Bachchan's Pink, is looking forward to this love story, "It is a genre that I have always wanted to delve in. While love and romance have been entwined with Indian cinema, there is abundance in that emotion that everyone can have their own interpretations of. Juhi and I have always tried to create stories from the reflections of real life moments that we see around us. October is another effort to explore those moments out of simple situations of life."
Varun Dhawan's next release is his father David Dhawan's Judwaa 2, in which he plays a double role for the first time. Judwaa 2, which also stars Jacqueline Fernandez and Taapsee Pannu, is scheduled to release on September 29.
