New Delhi: Actor Varun Dhawan, who is gearing up for the release of his film 'October' on Friday shared the first look of the movie. The film is a slice of life love story that is written by Juhi Chaturvedi. 

The actor had on Thursday announced on social media that he would be sharing something from the film today. 

Varun captioned the first look of his film writing, "#OctoberFirstLook. October will live with you forever.@ShoojitSircar @ronnielahiri @writeonj @BanitaSandhu."

The poster has dreamy-eyed Varun, in an intense look, lying on a green grassy field and is lost deep in thought.  

Meanwhile, it would be interesting to know that Varun slashed his fee almost by half to work for Shoojit Sircar's movie. According to TOI, when director Shoojit approached Varun for the project, he made it very clear that the film is a small budgeted. By that time, the 'Badlapur' star was already taken up by the story and showed his interest to do the movie. 

Hence, he agreed to the filmmaker's expectation and decided to slash his fee, by almost 50 percent, for the project. 

'October' is being made at a budget of Rs 20 crore. The film has been shot extensively in Delhi and Himachal Pradesh and the shooting was wrapped up in only 38 days, much ahead of schedule.

Apart from Varun in the key role, the film also features and newbie Banita Sandhu is a romantic film and is slated to release on April 13. 

Earlier, this is how Varun introduced his 'October girl':

Sircar is collaborating with Varun for the first time. During an interaction with NDTV, he said, "I think Varun is very bright. He is trying to open up to different genres. Actors should keep exploring different genres, stories and directors. At the end of the day, you have to challenge yourself and Varun does just that."
Banita, on the other hand, would be making her debut with the movie. She is an NRI model from Wales, UK, who has been acting in commercials and more since she was 12. She is also well known for the Vodafone TVC and has previously worked with Shoojit on a commercial too.
