After enjoying great success with Badrinath Ki Dulhania and Judwaa 2 this year, Varun Dhawan is ready to grace the silver screen next year with his next movie October. Directed by Shoojit Sircar, the movie will release on 13 April, 2018.

It was earlier slated to release on 1 June next year. Newcomer Banita Sandhu will be making her debut alongside Varun in this film.

An excited Varun Dhawan has already shared his first look from October on Twitter with a caption, “As October comes to an end it arrives earlier next year. #October releases on 13 th Aprilnow.@ShoojitSircar @ronnielahiri @BanitaSandhu.”

Sircar has enjoyed phenomenal success with hit films like Piku (2015), Madras Cafe (2013) and Vicky Donor (2012). October would be a romantic one which is being written by Juhi Chaturvedi.

Varun who has mostly been comfortable with comedy and lighthearted movies in the past, will be seen portraying a serious role in October. His character in Badlapur also had the similar essence.

Initially, R Balki's social biopic Padman was scheduled to release on 13 April but the makers pulled it ahead to the Republic Day weekend. It will now clash with S Shankar's Tamil sci-fi entertainer 2.0.
