I was learning Hindi along with my university classes: Banita Sandhu 

The debutante actor talks about her efforts to learn the language for her upcoming film October

Published: 02nd April 2018

Indian-British actor Banita Sandhu says she hired a Hindi tutor for her Bollywood debut film October. She is now eagerly awaiting the release of the film helmed by Shoojit Sircar.

Talking about the language barrier Banita says, "The film was offered to me a year before it was shot. So I hired a Hindi tutor. I was learning the language along with my university classes. Learning a language like Hindi when you live in London and people around you speak in English, makes it very hard to pick it up."

The actor had shared this problem with the director, who helped her improve her diction further by training her through video calls. On Indian cinema, she says, "Language is no longer a barrier and with Hindi cinema, if the content is good, the film will be accepted by the audience for sure." 

Banita says she has watched the film and is proud of the way it has come out. She signs off saying, "I am eagerly waiting for all the British audience to watch it. It is an international film and a beautiful piece of art."

October, co-starring Varun Dhawan, is set to release on April 13.
