Veteran actor Anil Kapoor is excited to watch the film, he wrote, "January, February, March, #October!"
He said, "I think it's true". When I heard the story, I was so moved by it that I felt the need of doing the film.
Sircar said, "This film is based on honesty, I couldn't do anything else which I do on other films".
Regarding the film, Varun had earlier tweeted, "October is not a movie about love at first sight". Varun's next film October looks really fascinating to the heart, and this we can surely say after witnessing attractive trailer of this Shoojit Sarcar directorial. It would be better the more money you invent on films and script. In October Shoojitda, writer Juhi Chaturvedi and every one of our crew members put their heart and soul in it. "They signed me for the film even before Badrinath Ki Dulhania and Judwaa 2", Varun said.
Not only the film has been an emotional journey for the actor, but the film also turned out to be a learning experience for Varun. Talking about working with Dhawan, Sircar was cited in Times Of India saying, "I had a different perception (of him) all together, of people who become overnight stars with insane fan following, which I'm not used to". Hints of a budding romance are thrown in before a sudden twist spins the story in a very different direction. In an interview with a leading tabloid, Shoojit Sircar revealed how Varun prepared for his role in "October".
The film is set to hit cinema houses on April 13.
