Varun Dhawan had confirmed some time ago that he would be seen in Shoojit Sircar’s next. BizAsiaLive.com can reveal that the film is an unusual love story and is titled ‘October’.
Sircar told Hindustan Times more about the film, “It’s again an out-of-the-box kind of story. We started working on this film’s idea, which came from a small newspaper clipping, right before Piku (2015)”. He also adds that the story is unconventional and has a “slice-of-life” feel to it.
Talking about working with Sircar, Dhawan also states, “I am definitely happy and excited. What’s amazing about him (Shoojit) is that he is very sure about his vision. I have met him just now, so I am trying to get into that world, understand it, and the way the film is going to breathe and feel. It’s very different from anything I have done before”.
Ronnie Lahiri, Sircar’s business partner, also adds, “Somehow, we have constantly jumped genres, even if not consciously. Then, we thought, ‘so many love stories get made, so why not have our kind of a love story?’ Our film has an element of a love story but in a very unusual manner. And Varun is one of the finest young actors that we have right now and plus, this character will be a leap for him too from all the characters that he has done till now”.
The film will be shot in Delhi and is expected to roll in October, coincidentally. Lahiri adds, “We plan to release it in the early part of next year, around March-April but we haven’t zeroed in on the exact release date”.
