Varun Dhawan, who is currently busy shooting for the movie Judwaa 2 with his father David Dhawan, has apparently bagged a role in Shoojit Sircar’s next project. The star took to Instagram yesterday to share his excitement about working with the ace director on his upcoming project titled 'October'.
The movie will be written by Juhi Chaturvedi who had also written movies like Vicky Donor and Piku for the director. The duo will start working on ‘October’, September onwards. The movie is supposed to be a slice of life love story that will speak to the masses.
This will be the first movie together for Varun and Shoojit and here’s how Varun expressed his excitement, “I have been an ardent fan of Shoojit da's work and have always wanted to work with him. October is a beautiful story in which I play a character with many layers. It's a difficult character to play. I just want to surrender to my part and show people a new side of me. Shoojit da, Ronnie (Lahiri) and Juhi have always made good cinema I feel I feel grateful to join their team.”
Shoojit, who has directed movies like Vicky Donor, Piku and Madras Café, has also produced Amitabh Bachchan’s Pink and is now looking forward to working with Varun. Here’s what he had to say, “It is a genre that I have always wanted to delve in. While love and romance have been entwined with Indian cinema, there is abundance in that emotion that everyone can have their own interpretations of. Juhi and I have always tried to create stories from the reflections of real life moments that we see around us. October is another effort to explore those moments out of simple situations of life.”
While we cannot wait to see Varun Dhawan is a whole new character, we are excited to hear about the new collaboration.
