Putting everyone's speculations to rest Shoojit Sircar finally announced who will be starring opposite Varun Dhawan in his next directorial venture OCTOBER.
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. The director is now all set to launch Banita Sandhu in OCTOBER.
Banita is from Wales in United Kingdom and has done some advertising assignments including the very popular commercial directed by Shoojit last year.
“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,” says Sircar.
Talking about 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.”
After working with Juhi Chaturvedi in VICKY DONOR and PIKU Shoojit Sircar will be once again collaborating with her for this film as well.
OCTOBER is slated to release on June 1 next year.
