Twenty-year-old Banita Sandhu is set to make her Bollywood debut in the movie 'October'.

The next release from leading film director Shoojit Sircar stars Banita alongside heart-throb Varun Dhawan and releases worldwide in April.

Dan (Varun Dhawan) is a hotel management trainee, living the life of any carefree 21-year-old, revolving around a bunch of friends and fellow hotel interns who feed off each other’s everyday moments, ups and downs.

Shiuli (Banita Sandhu), is one such intern at the same hotel, who at times is at the receiving end of Dan’s brash and often harsh tongue.

Banita Sandhu, who is still in her final year at King’s College University in London, first met the legendary director whilst shooting a TV commercial in India.

She said, “When Shoojit-sir mentioned that he’d like me to be in his next film, I knew I couldn’t say no.

"I hadn’t read the script but knew that he was truly an actor’s director and that I would be in safe hands. I couldn’t have asked for a better first film, first director and first co-star in Varun, who made me feel so very welcome and comfortable throughout the making of this amazing film.

"It has truly been a dream come true.”

October releases on April 13th 2018.
