Writer Juhi Chaturvedi on October: Varun Dhawan's Dan is the kind of character who will force you to believe in 'unconditional love'

April 12:For writer Juhi Chaturvedi, the past three years have been all about October. The Shoojit Sircar directorial that finally hits the theatres tomorrow is the story of 21-year-old Danish Wallia (Varun Dhawan) who falls in love with Shiuli (Banita Sandhu) in the most unusual way. But for Juhi, the three years have been like a cleansing process, "It has been a long journey but October is the kind of film that offers you to declutter all the other things that are going on in your life. As the focus was so specifically on the purity and simplicity of this character, Dan."
Ask Juhi what is so special about Dan and she said, "If there is something called unconditional love, something called surrender, something called 'purity of emotions,' like when you do things knowing that there is nothing you are going to get in return, Dan is the kind of character who will force you to believe in that kind of love."
In its promotional videos, October has been billed as a story about love and not a love story. But Juhi maintains that the expression is not about claiming 'Oh it's so different and nobody has ever done it,' rather it is about the special way in which the film touches their hearts. "It is probably my and Shoojit's vision of romance and our expression of how love should be. But everyone is entitled to have their own," Juhi told.
Juhi further revealed how the story for October came into being. "During Piku, Shoojit told me that he wanted to make a film about relationships. But it couldn't be your regular run-of-the-mill love story. You see the kind of intensity and purity that Dan has in the trailer, that was actually my brief, the kind of completely unconditional love. And on that note, I started thinking of the story. But a lot of things have definitely come out from my own experiences, from Shoojit's own experiences. Agencies
