The movie is expected to bring more moola during the weekend, but only time will tell if Varun Dhawan’s new movie will be able to repeat the magic of his earlier blockbusters.
#October has a slow start… Biz will have to witness miraculous growth over the weekend + maintain a strong trend on weekdays to leave a mark… Word of mouth is extremely mixed… Fri ₹ 5.04 cr. India biz.

All of Varun Dhawan’s previous films are successful at the box office, so it will be interesting to see if he can maintain this record with this offbeat movie. October’s primary plot revolves around an ordinary young man called Dan, and how he falls in love with a girl called Shiuli under unusual circumstances forms the rest of the story.
