Mohnish Singh |Nov 20, 2019

Banita Sandhu made her silver screen debut with eminent filmmaker Shoojit Sircar’s “October”, co-starring Varun Dhawan. She has now reteamed with Sircar to play a pivotal role in his next directorial “Udham Singh”.

Banita Sandhu made her silver screen debut with ace filmmaker Shoojit Sircar’s 2018 film October alongside Varun Dhawan. Though the movie did not leave the cash registers jingling at the box-office, it recovered its cost by the end of its lifetime run and yielded some profit as well. Banita Sandhu and Varun Dhawan received unanimous praises for their subtle performances in the film.

One year after the release of October, Banita Sandhu has reunited with director Shoojit Sircar once again. The newcomer has been roped in to play an important role in Sircar’s much-awaited next directorial offering Udham Singh, which stars National Award-winning actor Vicky Kaushal in the title role.

Talking to a publication, Banita Sandhu said that she has already shot in Punjab and it was great to be back working with the October team again. “I am in Udham Singh. We shot for it in Punjab. Vicky Kaushal is amazing and it was great to be back working with the October team again.”

Besides Bollywood, Banita Sandhu is also exploring opportunities down South. She has already finished shooting for the Tamil version of Sandeep Vanga Reddy’s cult Telugu film Arjun Reddy (2017), which was remade as Kabir Singh (2019) in Hindi. Talking about the remake, the actress told the publication, “I have not watched the final film yet, so I would not be able to say how my role has shaped up. But Vikram sir (legendary Tamil actor Vikram whose son Dhruv made his debut in Adithya Varma) and I worked to give my character more agency and autonomy in the film. I hope that gets translated on screen.”

Udham Singh is based on the revolutionary Udham Singh who assassinated Michael O’ Dwyer, former Lieutenant Governor of Punjab of British India in 1940, to avenge the horrors of the Jallianwala Bagh massacre. The film is scheduled to buzz into cinemas in 2020.
