Indian-British actress Banita Sandhu says she hired a language tutor for her Hindi debut film October. She is now looking forward for the British audience to watch the "international film and a beautiful piece of art" helmed by Shoojit Sircar.

October is inspired from a personal incident, says director Shoojit Sircar

How did she master the language barrier?

"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, it is very hard to pick it up," Sandhu said in a statement.

The actress shared this problem with the director, who helped her improve her diction further by training her through video calls.

According to her, the accent was the key aspect and she wanted to learn the Indian accent which Sircar helped her to attain.
