While a few names seemed to be crowd favourites, Dhawan took it from there and on Saturday announced who is going to sing the first track of October.
Judwaa 2 actor Varun Dhawan is gearing up for his next release October and he is keeping his fans on their toes with the promotions. As the release date nears, Varun is slowly unravelling details from the film. Yesterday the star asked his Twitter followers who they would like to hear in the first song from the film and his tweet was followed by a flood of suggestions. While a few names seemed to be crowd favourites, Dhawan took it from there and on Saturday announced who is going to sing the first track of October.
The chosen singer Armaan Malik featured on the announcement tweet of Dhawan singing the chorus from the first song and reinstating exactly why he has been chosen over other industry names like Arijit Singh and Atif Aslam. The first track from the film has been announced to be ‘Thehar ja’.
When Dhawan asked his fans for suggestions, a few fans went beyond industry playback regulars, a few even propped Alia Bhatt and Varun’s name. It seemed like since the actor was so open to suggestions, fans did not leave out their expectation of him helming the mic for the film.
October stars Dhawan and debutant Banita Sandhu. The movie is being helmed by Piku director Shoojit Sircar and is said to be a slow romance where the love story does not exactly see a happy ending. The movie is slated for a April 13 release.
