'October' my take on love: Shoojit Sircar

Press Trust of India 

After making hard-hitting films like "Madras Cafe", "Pink", is ready with his first full-fledged love story, "October", which, he says, will have little glimpses from his life.

"'October' is my take on love, this is the real love I believe in and I have experienced in life. The has little experiences from my life and from what Juhi (Chaturvedi) has written. This was a difficult like 'Piku' and 'Madras Cafe'. I do not select stories thinking anything specific, I just go by what I like, what comes to my mind," Shoojit told

The says he chose Varun Dhawan for the because he wanted to tap his potential as an and show him in a different light.

"There are certain potentials that I like to tap as a in actors. I tried that with Deepika Padukone, in 'Piku' and Taapsee Pannu in 'Pink'. He (Varun) is hungry and ready to surrender and when you find that in an actor, what else do you want. I do not want anybody to do a favour on me, I want someone to come and jump in and say let's do it."


Like Shoojit's previous ventures, this is also close to everyday reality.

"'Piku' was like everyday affair, when people saw the film, they were like this happens with us everyday. In this film, love is shown through my eyes. What we do not notice about love in life is what I have tried to show.
