Shoojit Sircar's slice-of-life film October has finally hit the screens. The film stars Varun Dhawan and Banita Sandhu in the lead roles. October has been appreciated by both the critics and viewers. Varun took to Instagram to share a video wherein he is seen saying thank you.
"Guys, I just want to say thank you and it's been three days that October is out. The love and respect that I have got, this film has got means the world to me. I can't explain how overwhelming is this and how much it means to me. This is life-changing for me as an actor. I promise to work even harder on every film, give you the best and give you every character that touches you," said the actor.
Meanwhile, in a conversation with Pinkvilla, talking about the impact October had on him, Varun revealed, "This film has had such a big impact on me that after finishing the shoot, there were days when I was just alone. I couldn't meet people. I didn't want to interact too much with people and I just felt that...I was just viewing my life and I was like why am I living it in this way and I made some changes to what kind of person I am. I've tried to put that back in my work. It's almost like someone put a reset button on me."
October was a tight-packed schedule of just 37 days but Varun was so invested in his character that he was sad to let go. "I've never been more unhappy when a film has been over. I just wanted to stay in that zone with these amazing people who are doing what they were doing. This is the only film where I have not looked at the monitor when I have given a shot, this is the only film. Knowing me with all the films I have done, I will always go look at the monitor. This is the only film where I, for some reason, did not go and check the monitor, I was not going only," Varun said.
