Banita Sandhu’s Journey to Bollywood
Banita Sandhu, who hails from London, is set to make her Bollywood debut with a starring role in the upcoming film ‘Peepli Live’. Banita says her journey to Bollywood started when she moved to Mumbai to pursue an acting career. She shares, “I was living in Mumbai for about two years and I just got really sick of it. I was working as a waitress and I realised that I could do better if I had more opportunities so I decided to move back home.”
Banita credits her parents for supporting her during her journey to Bollywood. She says, “My mum is always there for me and my dad is such an amazing support. He’s actually been instrumental in getting me this opportunity because he knows how much I want to be a star.”

Banita Sandhu’s Debut Film October
Banita Sandhu’s journey to make her Bollywood debut began in London. After completing a degree in biomedical sciences, the aspiring actress moved to Mumbai and started looking for work. She enrolled in acting classes and found an agent, but it wasn’t long before she realized that the industry was far different than what she was used to in Britain.
“In London, I had been working as a researcher and doing some freelance work. I had always wanted to act, but when I came to Mumbai, I found out that there were no opportunities,” Banita recalls. “I did my research and found that there are only a few Bollywood films being shot each year. And even then, most of the roles are for young girls.”
Banita set about finding work in film production instead. She landed a role in a web series called ‘Bigg Boss 7,’ which gave her some valuable experience on-screen. It was also through this series that she met director Mohit Suri, who offered her the lead role in his upcoming film ‘October.’
‘October’ is based on the real-life story of two young women who fall victim to human trafficking in India. The film tells their story from both perspectives – that of the traffickers who exploit them, and that of the girls themselves, who fight against all odds to survive. Banita plays one of these girls – Rani – who is fighting not only for herself but also for her friends and family back
