[Exclusive Video] Varun Dhawan on the intense shoot routine of October: No sleep for days, no phone, no make-up


The first promo of Varun Dhawan‘s October has been released and we have to say it is beautiful. Not only is it a visual delight, but Varun is seen in a never seen before avatar. The look and feel of October is fantastic and we can’t wait to see the film now. In fact, we feel the movie is going to be VD’s best till date. And even the actor admits that October is special and it is unlike any movie he has done till date! He even points out the preparation for this film’s character was nothing like what he has done till now.

In an exclusive interaction, Varun Dhawan revealed to us, “I went to Shoojit and told him to take me in a film, I told him ‘Please make a film with me.’ Three months went by and Shoojit and Juhi saw me in that character from October and that’s how it happened. But the process of getting into October was very different from what I’ve done ever before. I had to be prepared to be spun around on my head because with the concepts in the film, if I was saying a dialogue like a dialogue, then it wouldn’t work. The dialogues had to be felt and delivered like they were my own words. Just understanding that was difficult! Shoojit wanted me to live the character and not just come and act it out. So no make up, for days no sleep, no phone and much more. There was a piece of music that he had given me, which I would listen to, get into that zone and reach the set. Everyday, he would remove my make up and spoil my hair. No glycerine, I was just doing what was meant to be done.” (ALSO READ – World of October: 3 beautiful shots of Varun Dhawan and Banita Sandhu is all it takes for us to fall in love all over again – watch video)

Varun also added that the intent of releasing this promo of October was very simple, they just wanted to establish that the film was a love story and not a thriller like everyone was thinking. As he mentioned to us exclusively, “There were so many questions coming out about October, like what is October? You saw a picture here and there, we had a calendar out, but what exactly is the film about? And what is Shoojit Sircar up to? This promo just kind of sets the tone that this is his take on a love story in 2018. It shows how love happens in today’s day and age and what’s the significance of love. And if the kind of love that we’ve shown exists in real life or not.” Anyway, stay tuned to BollywoodLife as we get you all the dope and updates about October right here.
