Bollywood actress Banita Sandhu will be seen in Priscilla Quintana starrer action series Pandora, reports Hindustan Times.
The series stars Oliver Dench, Raechelle Banno, John Harlan Kim, Ben Radcliffe, Banita, Martin Bobb-Semple and Noah Huntley. Production is underway in Bulgaria. A premiere date has not yet been set, reports deadline.com.
An excited Banita, who made her debut in Bollywood with the film October in 2018, had tweeted: ‘So thrilled to announce my next project with The CW.’ Banita’s October co-star Varun Dhawan tweeted on Thursday morning: ‘Wohoo so proud of you Bani. Does this mean I have to get in touch with your agent now to see you.’ Banita was quick to respond and wrote, ‘I will have her contact you now.’
Set in the year 2199, Pandora centres on Jax, played by Quintana, a resourceful young woman who has lost everything after the death of her parents but finds a new life at Earth’s Space Training Academy where she and her friends learn to defend the Galaxy from threats, both alien and human.
When secrets about the nature of her own identity begin to surface, she must uncover the truth, and whether she will be humanity’s saviour or the instrument of its destruction.
Banita will play Delaney Pilar, Jax’s roommate in the series.
Jax is super smart, naturally inquisitive, empowered, and with a quick acerbic wit. As traumatic as the death of her parents was for her, her world will be turned upside down even more when she learns her whole life is a lie. Quintana’s recent feature credits include Traffik and Polaroid.
