Soojit Sircar returns to direction after a gap of almost 3 years. His last outing Piku received a lot of love and similar finesse was expected from his latest October as well. The romantic drama has managed to impress both critics and the audiences.
October is penned by Juhi Chaturvedi, who also happens to be Piku’s writer as well. It marks the debut for actor Banita Sandhu and also stars theatre artist Gitanjali Rao in the role of Sandhu’s mother.
Varun Dhawan has had a quite successful box office career as almost all his outings did good business. His pairing with Sircar came as a surprise to many, but the over the top actor has just proven that he has subtle acting genes as well.
