Varun Dhawan is being widely appreciated for his nuanced performance in October. Varun has touched the audience’s hearts with his portrayal of Dan in the film.

He spoke to a noted journalist today and talked about his experience of working on the film. He said, “This is the most fun I’ve had – for 37 days I was flying. It was like a nashaYeh alag nasha tha (it was a different kind of addiction). Here I was not thinking about the lines, it was just coming out of me. But it affected my personal life quite a bit. I came back very quiet.”

He also shared why he wanted to do October. He said, "It’s a film I wanted to do. Shoojit (Sircar) has had the idea since 2004. This film takes birth from a very personal space of the writer and director. I chased Shoojit because I wanted to work with him. But when he spoke to me about it I said, “It’s not my comfort zone, why do you want to take me?” I told him I’ll become a newcomer. He gave me so much freedom to let my eyes and silence do the talking. This is the most fun I’ve ever had on a film set."

Earlier too, Varun had talked about how he realized the true meaning of love while filming October. He had said, “Shoojit da is a fascinating person, and this film is not a cliché love story. It shows you what the definition of true love is. It’s a much misused term today and used very poorly by people, including myself. While shooting, I understood the meaning of love and it hit me so strongly. As a kid when I used to ask mom what is love, she’d explain it to me in the purest way but as we grow, it becomes so adulterated, and you wonder how the same word can have so many different meanings. So, October beautifully explains it to you.”

Talking about his personal life, Varun had shared, “Very recently, my personal life was in a big dilemma, and I was going through a lot of other issues that took me time to come to terms with. I learned a lesson that life is too short.”

bad actor

The sad thing is actors like Varun do these kinds of films( badlapur, October) to only show that they can act, they don't do them because they believe in that kind of cinema, meaning soon he will go back to the brainless masala and do a good film after another 3 years, why do nepo kids feel the need to prove their acting abilities all the time? why do not Rajkumar, Ayushman, kangana, Emran hasmi, vidya do not opt for this strategy. Kareena for instance has been in the industry for almost 17 years and the films she always talks about as her best are chameli, dev, jab we met, omkara even though she's done over 40 films.

Most overrated actor!

Overrated actor!

Nobody cares about your personal life, basically your life is exactly playing out like your film Badrinath Ki Dulhania except in reality you have no backbone. Don’t play us fool.

tapori actor... he is talking as if he is dilip kumar or dec anand or raj kapoor :|

We know how your parents forced you to be with Natasha & now you two are busy doing PDA to show that you are so in love.

Stop talking about your relationship.We don't care about Natasha at all.

He said the same thing when he did Badlapur....

Thanks god, he won't said something dramatic same as Deepika and Ranveer Singh Seek Psychiatric Help to Get Over the Effect of 'Padmavati' ROFL
