No one cared how I felt as an actor before ‘October’: Varun

Wednesday, April 11, 2018

Varun Dhawan has mostly been part of massy entertainers except Sriram Raghavan's "Badlapur", in which he played an intense part, and now with Shoojit Sircar's "October", the actor is hopeful that the audience will find his performance novel.

The actor says irrespective of the box office result, he is confident the people won't come out saying he has repeated himself in the film, a romantic drama. "No matter how the film fares, I can say with surety that there's not a single frame where you would say, 'He has done this in that film'. There's no repetition of expression or dialogue delivery," Varun said in an interview.

Shoojit, who has directed the actor for the first time, had earlier said he wasn't aware about him and his work. But when the two started working on "October", Varun was surprised the way the director got him to do scenes. "Shoojit hadn't seen a single film of mine so, he wouldn't know how I act, but the way he broke a scene down was unbelievable," Varun added.

Varun said it was for the first time while shooting "October" that he realised that people around him cared how he felt as an actor. The first brief given to him was to completely detach himself from cellphones, which Varun did. "I stopped looking at my phone to calm myself. Much of our anxiety comes because of our cellphone. So the first thing he (Shoojit) told me was to not look at the phone, instead he asked me to look at plants or nature.” He created his own playlist and started listening to `Hare Rama Hare Krishna' by Jahnavi Harrison, Jim Morrison, among others to get into the space of his character 'Dan'.
