October came and went. And though the beautiful film fetched Varun Dhawan and his director Shoojit Sircar a truckload of acclaim, British-born debutante Banita Sadhu did not benefit from the glowing reviews at all.
After a long break she is back in India. Having just completed the Tamil version of Sandeep Vanga’s Arjun Reddy, Banita is now a part of Shoot Sircar’s historical Udham Singh where Vicky Kaushal plays the title role.
Confirming her return to her October director’s cinema Banita says, “Yes 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.”
About her role of the wild drinking snorting fornicating Arjun Reddy’s love interest in Adithya Varma the Tamil version of the controversial film, Banita says, “I haven’t watched the film yet, so I wouldn’t be able to say how my role has shaped up. But Vikram sir (legendary Tamil actor Vikram whose son Dhruv makes his debut in Adithya Varma) and I worked to give my character more agency and autonomy in the film. I hope that got translated on screen.”
