The film looks interesting and all these innovative ways of promoting it has only added more curiosity and excitement for the film. But there are some reports that say that October has been inspired by the Hollywood movie Her, which was also nominated for the Oscar. It’s said to be a love story with a difference, where a man falls in love with an interactive smart user interface voiced by a woman!
Banita makes her debut in Bollywood with this film and apparently she was chosen for the role by Shoojit as he had earlier worked with her for an ad and he thought she fit the role perfectly. Also as Shoojit mentioned earlier that he prefers a fresh pairing when it comes to the romance genre of films.
The film has been shot in Delhi and Himachal Pradesh and was wrapped up much ahead of schedule. Varun had earlier tweeted: “October wraps in November. Will release in April and will stay with you forever.” October is all set to release in April this year and we sure are looking forward to it!
