In October, Varun Dhawan portrays the role of Dan, a young hotel management trainee who falls in love with his colleague under unusual circumstances. The film also marks the debut film of Banita Sandhu. In a recent interview, Varun said that people have connected with the film. “What we see in October is what everyone goes through in life,” shared the actor.

Varun also shared, “When I decided to do October, I put my entire soul into it. After Badrinath Ki Dulhania and Judwaa 2, I could have done another blockbuster kind of film. But I wanted to do a character who was not so high on self-confidence. Dan is a bit of an upstart. He isn’t your average hero at all. When I heard about the role, I insisted that Shoojit Sircar cast me, although he had a completely different cast in mind.”
Apart from Varun, October stars Banita Sandhu and Gitanjali Rao in the lead roles.
