Team October had a small get together at a restaurant in the city last night. They enjoyed their meal and even posed for a few pictures together. However, as soon as the lead actors of the film Varun Dhawan and Banita Sandhu stepped out of the restaurant, the duo was hounded by paparazzi.

Recently, Varun shared the motion poster of the film. He captioned the video, “This year #October is coming in April and will stay with you forever #Octoberforever.13th April @shoojitsircar @ronnie.lahiri @banita.sandhu @juhic3.”

The film is directed by Shoojit Sircar. While talking about Banita, Shoojit had earlier told a leading daily, “Everybody loved Banita in a chewing gum commercial that I had directed. It had almost 40 million hits. While I was shooting the ad film, Juhi (Chaturvedi; writer) and I were also working on the script [for this film]. So, one day, I clicked a picture of Banita and sent it to Juhi saying, ‘She has the potential to fit into the character that we are looking at’.”

What made him choose a newcomer, when he could have easily worked with an established actress? “It has never mattered to me if I am working with established or non-established actors. The demands of the script is all that matters. The script required a certain face, vulnerability and innocence, so we did many auditions,” Shoojit had explained.

The film will hit theatres on April 13, 2018.
