October Girl Will Play Female Lead In Arjun Reddy Tamil Remake, Banita Sandhu Confirms

 The  shakeup in the  cast and crew of  Varmaa, the Tamil remake of  the game-changing Telugu  blockbuster  Arjun Reddy,left  the project with only the hero  in  place. And  that is Tamil cinema’s doyen Vikram’s son Dhruv  whose launch-pad  Varmaa is meant to be.

However  the producers were  so deeply   disappointed  by what director Bala  had achieved that they decided to  scrap the  entire film after  it was complete, dismantle the entire cast and crew , except  of course Dhruv(it’s his launch , remember?)  and  remake the  film from scratch.

For a  few days now news reports  of  Britain-based  actress Banita Sandhu who playedVarun Dhawan’s comatose  soul-mate in Shoojit Sircar’s  October,  replacing the orginal  female lead,  Meghna a model from  Kolkata, in  Varmaa was doing the rounds.

 Banita has confirmed  to me that she is indeed doing  Varmaa.

Says Banita, “Yes I am doing Varmaa. And I  am  quite excited  about it.After  Octobernothing  really interesting was coming way. Until now.”

Banita  looks forward to  begin  preparation to play the  out-of-control alcoholic  hero’s quiet subdued love interest. “I am waiting for  the acting workshops to begin.The  shooting date is yet to be finalized. But I am hoping it  would  begin  in  the next month or so.”

The pretty young British Indian says she can’t wait to start shooting. “I was just waiting for  the right  film to come along after October.This(Varmaa) made perfect sense.I am super-excited  about getting back on a film set.”
