October, directed by Shoojit Sircar and starring Varun Dhawan and Banita Sandhu has achieved critical acclaim and the status of one of the best movies of the year so far. Newcomer, Banita Sandhu has also gained a lot of positive notices for her role as Shuili, a hotel management intern who gets into a fatal accident, which causes change in her, and Dan (played by Varun Dhawan), a fellow classmate’s life. Banita, who hails from England, had to play an extremely difficult role in her debut movie, one which would demand her to sacrifice her hair, as she was going to portray someone who goes through multiple brain surgeries and is bed bound most of the running time of the movie.
But, it seems that Banita knows how to follow through her commitments, as a recently released video shows the Shoojit Sircar cuts her hair, as she sits before a mirror. The moment only showcases Banita’s dedication for her work, and that she isn’t afraid to choose projects that need such difficult decisions.
October has gotten rave review from the critics in India, who have hailed the movie for its realistic portrayal of grief, and unconditional love. The movie might not be doing the kind of business one excepts from a project starring Varun Dhawan, but it has enough acclaim for Varun, Banita, actress Gitanjali Rao and writer director Jodi, Juhi Chaturvedi and Shoojit that it is surely going to be recognized at the end of the year.
