‘October’ revolves around unconditional love between character of Varun Dhawan and Banita Sandhu, talking about film, Shoojit said, “The word ‘unconditional’ is used like a jargon nowadays, but what is that unconditional love? In October, I’ve tried to create a situation where we can really experience what it means. There are some very small but significant references in the film. Juhi Chaturvedi (the writer of October) and my writing process is such that we work on a thought and borrow elements from our life experiences to explain and elaborate that thought.”
“The idea was there with me from 2004. It is an intensely personal story. A few things happened in my life, which I can talk about once the film is released. Once you have experienced the film, we can talk about it. So, it stayed with me since then, and then we worked on it. There is no definition to love. It is a feeling. So, I say feel October, experience October.”
