While interacting with the media as well as fans Varun said: "'October' comes from an extremely special place from my heart because as my career forwarded, I just felt that I started becoming more selfish and I wanted to do a selfless character like Dan."
"Dan is within all of us, we have just forgotten it with time. Let's not lose the humanity in human and that's what I wanted to say with 'October'," he added.
The "Badlapur" actor pleaded with his fans that it is important to give time to people in life.
"Now that the film is out I can finally say this. Life is so unpredictable and we don't know when we might lose someone who is close to us. It is so important to give time to people in life and know what is your priority in life," he said.
The film written by Juhi Chaturvedi and presented under the Rising Sun Films banner hit the theatres on Friday.
