Varun Dhawan interacted with the media on the trailer launch of his upcoming film ‘October’ directed by Shoojit Sircar, who has previously helmed projects like Piku, Vicky Donor among others.
“I was the last person to be cast in the film after meeting Shoojit Sircar. I think casting should happen that way. Not because one actor is doing good in films. When I heard the story, I was so moved by it that I felt the need of doing the film,” said the actor.
“I need the film more than anyone else in the room at this point of time in my career,” said Dhawan.
When asked about his process of signing a film, he said that the script is of utmost importance and the filmmaker’s willingness in making the film.
“When I sign a film, I look at the script more than anything, and how much the maker is putting in the film. In October, Shoojit da, writer Juhi Chaturvedi and every one of our crew members put their heart and soul into it. I had to be a part of this film. They signed me for the film even before Badrinath Ki Dulhania and Judwaa 2,” said Dhawan.
Varun Dhawan has been seen mostly in masala films like ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya’, ‘Judwaa 2’ among others. He was type-casted with roles like these. ‘October’ is the film that will break Varun’s image as an actor and present him in a new role.
The film is slated to release on April 13 this year.
