October follows the story of two hotel management trainees, Dan (Dhawan) and Shiuli (Sandhu) and their struggle through daily life. A Tragedy ensues when Shiuli meets with an unfortunate accident. Dan, who had been more or less of an acquaintance to Shiuli earlier, now becomes a constant support for her and her family.
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.
