Ever since Shoojit Sircar's directorial, October released this Friday, everyone has been asking only about the 20-year-old British-Indian actor, Banita Sandhu. She has made her debut opposite Varun Dhawan in this one, and she has not yet finished garnering rave reviews!
This British-Indian model began her acting career, at the age of 11 through various TV shows.
Although she took her first step towards success when she appeared in a Vodafone and Doublemint advertisements made her an instant internet sensation.
But apart from having good looks and a stable modelling career, Banita also holds a graduation degree in English Lit.
Call it destiny or what you like, but Banita met the screenwriter and director of her dream debut project, Juhi Chaturvedi and Shoojit Sircar respectively during the shoot of Doublemint's 'Ek Ajnabee Haseena Se' commercial.
Juhi who holds credits of films like Vicky Donor and Piku, thought of Banita as the perfect fit for the role.
Banita also said that she agreed for the role without even hearing the script in detail because, she was "desperate to work with Shoojit sir again."
Before starting the shoot for the movie, she had to work on her dialect and speech since she had no common over the Hindi language.
For a debut film, the romantic drama October was definitely not an easy choice, but both Varun and Banita have been earning praises on social media for their performance.
Well we would love to see you again!
