Always indebted to Shoojit Sircar for trusting me with October: Banita Sandhu

06/12/2018

British-Indian actor Banita Sandhu, who made her debut with October, says she does not want to limit herself to a particular genre. The 20-year-old actor says she enjoys commercial cinema and she wants to be associated with good content.
“I don’t want to box myself into anything. I have done October and I am super happy. I want to be versatile and work with different creative people. If it is a massy film, great or if it is going to be an independent film with first time director, that also will be great. I just want to be creatively passionate about the project.
“… We all have grown up watching (commercial cinema) and there is a reason they do well. But at the same time, I am so much driven creatively to push the envelope and boundaries and creating new content,” Banita told PTI.
The actor received appreciation for her performance as Shiuli, a hotel trainee who goes into coma after a freak accident. The film also starred Varun Dhawan.
“I am indebted to Shoojit Sircar (director) for trusting me with this role. It was a life changing role for me. It looked easy on screen but it wasn’t. We all worked as a team to pull it off. The response we got is incredible. I feel blessed and grateful to be part of the project,” she says.
After shooting the film, Banita returned to the UK to film Diljit Dosanjh’s music video ‘Jind Mahi’.
