Meet Varun Dhawan's new October girl!Sep 4, 2017 Abhishree Kulkarni
Hold on to your horses! By new girl we only mean the heroine of his next film – ‘October.’
Ever since Shoojit Sircar announced his next directorial outing ‘October’ with the ‘Judwaa 2’ actor, Varun Dhawan, there were many speculations about the leading lady of the film. While many big names were rumoured be a part of the film, Shoojit was very clear that he wants to cast a new girl opposite Varun.
And finally, Shoojit Sircar has introduced the heroine of ‘October’ - Banita Sandhu.
Shoojit is known to have a keen eye for spotting talent and launching them in his films. From Minissha Lamba (‘Yahaan’) to Yami Gautam and Ayushmann Khuranna (‘Vicky Donor’), he has played a mentor to many talented actors. And this time around, Shoojit has chosen Banita, who is from Wales in United Kingdom and has done some advertising assignments including the very popular Wrigley's Doublemint (Ek Ajnabee Haseena Se) Television commercial directed by Shoojit last year.
Talking about the casting process, Shoojit said, “When it comes to the genre of romance, it is always beautiful to see a fresh pairing. Something about seeing their chemistry blossom through the reels of the film, makes you feel a part of their journey from the very beginning. For ‘October’, that was one of the main reasons why I chose Banita for the lead role opposite Varun.”
Speaking of the film ‘October’, Producer Ronnie Lahiri of Rising Sun Films adds, “At Rising Sun Films, our endeavour has always been to create stories that are simple, connect with the audience and stay with them. ‘October’ will hopefully be one more step in that direction.”
‘October’ which will soon go on the floors, will be a story about love and promises to be yet another intriguing watch.
