Shoojit Sircar’s ‘October’ is a film that already has an interesting set of first looks. News has it that the filmmaker requested lead actor Varun Dhawan to limit his sleep so that he could look convincing in the role.

Dhawan and newbie Banita Sandhu were apparently asked not to sleep much by the filmmaker. Mumbai Mirror reports Sircar saying, “In October, a couple of scenes featuring Varun required extensive emotional outbursts that would exhaust him out and I needed this to reflect in his body language and eyes, coupled with a tired voice. During the process, I taught him to meditate too”.

Sircar also admitted that he has asked actors to do the same in his previous films.
