Varun Dhawan who is set to bring ‘October’ this April, has gone through an on set training for his character of a Hotel Management Student in the film.
The makers shot the entire sequence with Hotel as a back drop at the real location of a five star hotel in Delhi. Shoojit Sircar who believes in honest and authentic ways of shooting made Dhawan do everything a real hotel management student goes through, from washing toilets, cleaning dishes, vacuuming, cooking, etc. The actor was required to do all these tasks to pick up the mannerisms of a hotel employee.
Since they were shooting in an actual hotel which hosted a lot of guests from other countries would consider Dhawan as a real employee and order him things to do. The actor was asked to get food orders for the guest and even stopped to request to come for cleaning the room. Dhawan being in his character completely would even adhere to their requests.
A few times during these practices, Sircar would take his shots for the film which Dhawan was unaware about until he was shown how perfect the shots are.
Produced by Ronnie Lahiri and Sheel Kumar, ‘October’ stars Varun Dhawan and Banita Sandhu. A Rising Sun Films and Kino Works Production, directed by Shoojit Sircar the film is set to release on 13th April 2018.
