Varun Dhawan – Shoojit Sircar film ‘October’ announced

Bollywood star Varun Dhawan has signed Shoojit Sircar’s next film titled ‘October’. The critically acclaimed filmmaker has previously directed films like ‘Yahaan’, ‘Vicky Donor’, ‘Madras Cafe’ and ‘Piku’.

His latest film is a romantic slice-of-life tale. 

Talking to a leading daily, Shoojit said “It’s not a love story but his take on love. 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”

Varun also expressed his excitement, saying “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.”

Varun awaits the release of ‘Judwaa 2’ on September 29 this year.



  • No new films are performing & bunch of news are coming of new films everyday.
    Varun should learn action first if he really wants to do good cinemas,so audience will also get worth experience of cinema..
    He is good at comedy,sometime he is over,but still he has charm

  • He is the future of Indian Cinema. Varun will break Bahubali 2 records with ease because he is Punjabi and Punjabis are better than any other ethnicities in India. Watch another Punjabi Vivek Oberoi smashes the records in Vivegam.

    • Punjabi guy… varun is good bt what needs to be seen is that can he carry big films on his own…its not easy for anybody if he is given a solid story like bahubali…you need talent like prabhas to justify it…varun will end up being like govinda…. if he fails in big budget films…I think ranveer and ranbir (though he normally caters to classes only) have better chances to break recors if they make right choices…one example can ve aamir khan. ..who is perhaps the only global star right now…anyway I also like varuns work very much

      • He is capable of beating Bahubali 2 records. First Bahubali was originally from Punjabi film aka Harry Baweja’s project which was stolen by south. Harman Baweja and Emraan Hashmi was first appointed. Harman was busy and Emraan wasn’t interested. Then the bahubali story was given to south. Imagine if Harry Baweja had directed it.. Mega Blockbuster..

  • Varun’s best film so far is Badlapur ! Soojit Sircar is a great director. This movie could be another terrific material.

  • So shoojit sarkar moved away from poor actor johnny to mediocre actor varun

    A J is perfct for his movies

  • yes.. news are coming of new films everyday.
    Fedup of these upcoming movies…
    Bollywood is lossing its charm and audiance in Cinema Halls.
    Just One or two movies bring high Footfalls others are just brings Big news
    and fails..

  • I guess everyone is waiting for Varun to fail. That’s not fair. Keep shinning little star, but please stay away from singing ‘Nepotism rocks’ next time. Am Sid Malhotra’s fan, but Varun undoubtedly does terrific work with amazing script choices. I thoroughly enjoyed his Badrinath Ki Dulhania. Wish him the best with Judwaa 2 and October.

  • This guy @Ultron is not a Salman fan. He is calling Judwaa as “Halwaa”. Judwaa was a Salman film, so how can he insult it?

  • This will be the first flop of Varun’s career. Shooshit sirkharab is a flop director who always shows bengali angle or characters in his films. Poor choice by varun, he should have just shoo-ed him away…
