Today, Varun Dhawan unveiled the trailer of his much anticipated film, October, directed by Shoojit Sircar. At the trailer launch, Varun talked to media and made a surprising confession and it involves Ayushmann Khurrana.
"I always wanted to work with Shoojit Sircar. I remember being jealous of Ayushmann Khurrana when he did Vicky Donor," said Varun Dhawan. He was accompanied by his co-star Banita Sandhu, who's debuting in Bollywood with this film and Shoojit Sircar.
Varun Also Reacted To SRK's Comment About 'Reducing Fees'
He says, "I think it's true. He also produces his own films also so he is creatively also involved. One of the pioneers as an actor. Aur jo wo keh rahe hai sahi keh rahe hai ke paise ka.
The money should not control the creative part of the film. Jitna paisa aap script pe ya film pe daal sake wo behtar hoga. And I think you can work that out. "

Varun On How He Helped Banita For Her First Media Meet
He said, "Banita is just 20 years old and does not know much about how the media functions here.

Varun On Doing 'October'
He said, "No matter what people say but I need this film more than anyone else in my career. This film is based on honesty. I couldn't remove my shirt, couldn't act cute, nothing, so I had to be me."
Varun On Shoojit Sircar
"I always look at films like this a good film or a bad film. I don't believe that this is a big film and cost of production will be high so it will earn huge. It is always a story, I always look that the people I work with, how much of themselves are they putting into the film."
Varun: I Chased Shoojit Sircar For October
"I can tell with certainty that Shoojit da and Juhi (Chaturvedi) has put everything they could, their personal experiences their love, their passion for cinema into this film.
I was cast last in the movie, first Banita was cast then I was cast and that is how it should be. It shouldn't be like a person should be cast just because his movies are working.
He cast me into this film before Badri or Judwaa released. I literally chased him like I said," Varun added.
Varun: I Need This Film The Most In My Career
"When he narrated the film and why he wants to make this film, I was so moved that I felt 'forget everything, I need this film'. I am saying this today, No matter what people might think, of all the people here, I need this film the most in my career, more than anyone else," Varun concluded.
