Yesterday Chhabra, Today Sircar


It’s been happening over and over that someone supposed to be launched with an A-grade project has found themselves launched by someone else. This will likely keep happening too. 

Currently, audiences and industry insiders alike are talking about the debut of Banita Sandhu. And why not? The girl who’s done a few commercials is set to be launched by none other than Shoojit Sircar, in his next film, October – opposite Varun Dhawan, no less. 

We would like to mention here that, prior to this, Sandhu had been locked by casting director Mukesh Chhabra to play the leading lady in his directorial debut. And that project was to be produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali. 

Well, whatever the reason for that project never taking off, Sandhu’s career is now all set to soar. Here’s wishing her tonnes of luck!
