'October' starts slow, becomes Varun Dhawan's lowest opener
Varun Dhawan and debutante Banita Sandhu starrer 'October' has started slowly at the box office.
The Shoojit Sircar directorial has raked in Rs. 5.04 crore on its opening day, thus, becoming Varun's lowest opener till date.
'October' has fetched extremely mixed reviews from the critics as well as the audience. It will now be interesting to see how the film fares over the weekend.
Not the ideal numbers
#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.— taran adarsh (@taran_adarsh) April 14, 2018
'October' is an unconventional story of unconditional love
'October' is not a run-of-the-mill love story that the audience is used to seeing.
Writer Juhi Chaturvedi chose a less traveled path that would not appeal to a larger audience.
However, both Varun and Banita are being hailed for their stellar act in the film.
Most of the critics have even termed it as the best performance of Varun's career.
