October: When tourists mistook Varun Dhawan for a hotel employee!


Varun Dhawan who is gearing up for the release of his upcoming film October this April, has gone through an on set training for his character of a Hotel Management student in the Shoojit Sircar film. Turns out that while shooting for the film at a hotel, one of the tourists happened to mistake Varun for a hotel employee.

The makers shot the entire sequence with hotel as a back drop at the real location of a five star hotel in Delhi. The helmer Shoojit Sircar who believes in honest and authentic ways of shooting, made Varun do everything that a real hotel management student goes through – from washing toilets, cleaning dishes, vacuuming, cooking, etc.

The actor was required to do all these tasks to pick up the mannerisms of a hotel employee.

Since they were shooting in an actual hotel which hosted a lot of guests from other countries, tourists would consider Varun Dhawan as a real employee and order him things to do. The actor was asked to get food orders for the guest and even stopped to request to come for cleaning the room. Varun being in his character completely would even adhere to their requests.

A few times during these practices, Shoojit Sircar would take his shots for the film which Varun was unaware about until he was shown how perfect the shots are.

Produced by Ronnie Lahiri and Sheel Kumar, October stars Varun Dhawan and Banita Sandhu. A Rising Sun Films and Kino Works Production, directed by Shoojit Sircar the film is set to release on April 13, 2018.
