Varun Dhawan recently shared a picture on social media with a girl and captioned it as ‘#October girl’. The actor, who is busy promoting his upcoming movie ‘Judwaa 2’, will also been seen in Shoojit Sircar’s ‘October’, which is scheduled to release next year.
It has been confirmed that UK based Banita Sandhu will be starring opposite Varun in ‘October”
When Shoojit was asked about casting Banita, he said “We did look at other actors (for the female lead), but then one day, I called her and told her that I may be casting her in the film and that she should start doing workshops” Shoojit said.
He said that he had looked at other actors like Juhi Chaturvedi and Ronnie Lahiri but then zeroed down to Banita as he felt she would fit into the character well.
When asked why he decided to cast a newcomer instead of an established actress, Shoojit said “It has never mattered to me if I am working with established or non-established actors. The demands of the script is all that matters. The script required a certain face, vulnerability and innocence, so we did many auditions”
‘October’ stars Varun Dhawan and Banita Sandhu in the lead. the film will go on floors in October this year.
Check out the picture of Varun with Banita:
She is beautiful !!!
lol upper lip lift surgery gone wrong…averge looking girl
Not very appealing. Hope she acts well.
In picture she doesn’t look innocent tho..
I wonder when will the day come when directors will actively cast acresses based on talent and not models based off of looks
There are tons of goodlooking actresses out there
Script requires a certain face. I can’t see any innocence in this face.
Varun judwa 2 will beat akki rr. Varun is bigger star than akki
after robot 2 disaster akki will start begging on roads again
big salutes to your efforts
reading your comments for more than 4 yrs and akshay proved you wrong still you are keep saying this rubbish.
if i put this much regular effort in studies i think i am the university topper..
Funny that few guys are commenting on the girls avg looks ….. bachon try karke dekho ….. tum ko spot boy ki bhi jaga nahin milegi ….. Banita ignore these bitc%#* n go n conquer the world
Varun is a bigger star than Ajay Devgan.
Those who questioning, watch her video of doublemint (ek ajnabee hasina se). She is very adorable in that ad though can’t comment on her acting skills.
she is the most beautiful girl i have ever seen….BETTER THAN DEEPIKA N PRIYANKA!!! I hope people give her chance ….she has a great FUTURE!!! the only thing is she should change her name from BANITA TO NEETA/NITA.
she looks like Suhana at-least to me :-)
I have seen her in that double mint wala ad, she looked innocent in that. The song was ek ajnabee haseena se yun mulaqat ho gayi..
Why chor country UK based NRI actress, not Indian, its very shameful.
