Shoojit Sircar's "October" which is a story of a very different shade of love had the actors go through drills to be able to perform their roles with utmost honesty.

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

Shoojit, who is known to keep his movies authentic, wanted Varun to look as natural as possible and not use makeup. For a few scenes in the film, he wanted Varun to look sombre, for which he instructed him 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 directors vision and what translated on camera was spectacular.

The film has already gained immense anticipation with the distinct movie telling which the director has crafted for us again with Varun Dhawan to be seen in a very different avatar. 

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 burstouts, 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, "October" stars Varun Dhawan and Banita Sandhu. A Rising Sun Films Production, directed by Shoojit Sircar the film is set to release on 13th April 2018.
