As for Varun Dhawan, October has been his slowest start at the box office. However, with the pace it has picked up over the weekend should mint more money at the box office on the weekdays. In October, Varun Dhawan is seen in a very different role which is quite contrary to his image in Bollywood. Dhawan seems to make a lot more money with masala entertainers, however, with Shoojit Sircar’s flick he has taken a different route. Critics and his fans have admired his role and praised his acting in October.
It is definitely not his first tryst with experimenting with a different role. In the past, Varun Dhawan has done movies such as “Badlapur”, which is completely different from what he usually does. October has been directed by Shoojit Sarkar and writer of the flick is Juhi Chaturvedi. The duo has worked together in movies like Vicky Donor and Piku in the past. October also sees Banita Sandhu making her debut.
