It’s said that variety is the spice of life and filmmaker Shoojit Sircar understands this very well. After giving one of the most hard hitting films of recent times PINK (he had produced it) the filmmaker is all set to work on his next which is an unusual love story titled OCTOBER.
For OCTOBER the director would be teaming up with Varun Dhawan for the first time. The film, a slice of life love story written by Juhi will go on floors this September.
“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,” shared Shoojit.
An elated Varun shares, "I have been 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 and Juhi have always made good cinema I feel grateful to join their team."
Toasting their previous successes VICKY DONOR and PIKU, Shoojit Sircar will be once again collaborating with Juhi Chaturvedi for this film, “Our stories come from day today intricacies & complexities of life...the effort is always to find insightful and charming nuances in what seems the obvious. With Shoojit’s innate ability to steer the story in a way that creates poignant and compelling moments out of simple situations of life, I am hoping this time too we create something people find a connect with and make their own ,” expressed Juhi.
Producer Ronnie Lahiri of Rising Sun Films adds, “At Rising Sun Films, our endeavour has always been to create stories that are simple, connect with the audience and stay with them. OCTOBER will hopefully be one more step in that direction. The film will go on floors this September.”
