Varun Dhawan and Shoojit Sircar are collaborating (for the first time) on a slice-of-the-life love story October, which has been extensively shot in Delhi. Varun, who was last seen with Taapsee Pannu and Jacqueline Fernandez in ‘Judwaa 2’, is all set to romance debutant Banita Sandhu in Shoojit Sircar’s ‘October’. The film marks the Bollywood debut of the actress. October is scheduled to hit the screens on April 13, 2018.

As October continues to hit the chartbusters with its latest song releases (like Thaher Ja, Tabhi Bhi Tu) the makers of the film had released a behind the scenes video from the film sets. The video not only reveals the making of Danish Walia (Varun Dhawan’s character in the film) but also gave us an insight on how hard Varun Dhawan worked for October. Reportedly the actor, who has gone through rigorous training to excel at all the skills required in the hospitality field, had to learn to master the art of riding a bike on a highway. Reportedly, Varun was scared of riding a bike on the highway but he didn’t want to disappoint Shoojit Sircar.

In a statement to a leading daily, source from the sets of the movie revealed, “The film has extensively been shot in Delhi and Varun’s character; Danish uses a bike as a means of transportation throughout the film. He was also required to ride a bike for 3 hours non-stop on the Delhi Highway in the peak of winter while shooting. While he knew the basics of how to ride a bike, Varun was very nervous as he had never ridden a bike on a highway, let alone on the roads of Delhi.” On the other hand, Varun stated, “I was riding a bike on the highway for the first time and that too at 4 am. Shoojitda wanted a long journey so I was riding for a good three hours in the winter with trucks going past me. I was scared but I didn’t want to disappoint him and also didn’t want a stuntman to do the shot.” ALSO READ: October Song ‘Tab Bhi Tu’ Highlights The Complexity Of Varun Dhawan’s Relationship With Banita Sandhu
