Varun Dhawan has done one critically acclaimed film; October! And the film won the actor immense accolades for his intense acting skills. However; the film seemed tohave been ignored at the award season of this year, with the film finding no mention what so ever!


And now speaking about the same during an interview with Mid-Day; Varun was quoted," The press needs to write about the film [not being nominated]. Till date, I get at least one message a day for that movie."


The actor; who rightly so seemed miffed with the award shows however said," The award shows have a lot of other criteria (at play). I am happy to go, perform at these events and get paid for it. I never did October for awards. I did it because the script clicked with me. Awards will come and go. This film will stay."


Varun further continued to say," Recently, Jacqueline Fernandez watched the film on a flight and called me to appreciate my performance. That is the royalty I am collecting."


October came as a surprise project from Varun; as the actor is known for his blockbuster mainstream films. Directed by Shoojit Sircar; October, was considered a modest success at the box office, grossing over Rs 50 crore against a reported Rs 30 crore budget. Varun played a hotel management trainee, who dedicates his life to being with a girl whom he is in love with after she falls into a comatose.


Well; Varun returns to his foray with Karan Johar's magun opus Kalank, also featuring Alia Bhatt, Sanjay Dutt, Madhuri Dixit, Sonakshi Sinha and Aditya Roy Kapoor. The film is set to hit the screen on the 17th of April, 2019. He is also prepping for Remo D'souza directed; Street Dancer 3, the third installment of the hit dance franchise of ABCD!
