OCTOBER poster: A pensive Varun Dhawan appears to be heartbroken

Shoojit Sircar’s October is a story of a very different shade of love and the makers of the film have finally unveiled the first poster of this Varun Dhawan and Banita Sandhu starrer.


In the first poster a pensive Varun Dhawan is seen lying on grass which is laden with the beautiful Parijaat flowers (Night-flowering Jasmine) and seems to be lost in his thoughts.


By the looks of the poster it seems like Varun is sad and somber given his unshaved appearance. Reportedly Varun was asked by his director Shoojit Sircar to sleep as little as possible for one week in order to have the desired look.

Varun Dhawan who will be seen playing the lead character in the film had been asked to not sleep for an entire week to be able to look a certain way for his character in the film.


For a few scenes in the film, Shoojit wanted Varun to look sombre. Shoojit Sircar is known to keep his movies authentic, wanted Varun to look as natural as possible and not use makeup.


He instructed Varun to not sleep for a few days or have minimum sleep of an hour or two every day for a week. Varun without hesitation followed the director’s vision and what translated on camera was spectacular.

Shoojit Sircar shares, \"Yes I usually do this with many of my actors, used this during PINK as well. A couple of scenes with Varun required extensive emotional outbursts, a performance that showed him quite exhausted, depth and weight in his overall demeanour and eyes, coupled with a tired voice, so I asked him to not sleep at night prior to the scenes.\"

The makers will be launching the trailer of the film early next week. Produced by Ronnie Lahiri and Sheel Kumar the film is set to release on 13th April 2018.
