Shoojit Sircar's Varun Dhawan-starrer 'October' is seeing a lot of buzz, and for good reason. Not only is the plot a secret, debutante actress Banita Sandhu is a mystery in herself. A Punjabi model from London, she has worked in several advertisements earlier, including one with the director. Interviews with Dhawan reveal that the actor is completely smitten by the lady and can't stop talking about her.
“I can't think of anyone else who could have done what she has done. I really can't think of anyone! The relatibility factor that she is going to bring to every girl watching this, every boy watching this, every parent watching this, is going to be incredible. She has a connect, she has an incredible connect,” he said. Not just Dhawan, even Sircar is all praises for Sandhu. When asked why he cast a fresh face, he said, “Until now, I have not met anyone who has seen Banita's picture and not gone mad about her. Everyone is like 'Who is this girl?' She is so beautiful, so petite, so innocent, so I think that's the reason. What you saw about her- her innocence, her beauty, her down to earth nature and her girl next door image, that's what I also saw. And that's why I cast her and presented her in 'October'.”
So much buzz around the model makes us curious. Whether she lives up to the reputation, will be seen in April this year.
