Varun Dhawan and Banita Sandhu are being the cutest October co-stars on Twitter and their fans are loving every bit of it. On Friday, Banita shared a clip from her interview to a Welsh news channel in which she called Varun the Justin Bieber of India. Of course, Varun didn’t mind the comparison at all.

Banita, a student at King’s College, London, was asked by ITV Welsh News about landing a big role in a Bollywood film and if her family and friends were impressed by the feat. She said that neither she nor her friends or family realise how big a deal it was until the October trailer hit 20 million views in just a day.

She called director Shoojit Sircar ‘a great guy’ who is ‘incredibly and critically acclaimed in the industry’ and Varun the ‘Justin Bieber of India’ to introduce her film. Varun retweeted the clip and wrote, “Did u just call me the Justin bieber of india @BanitaSandhu. Hmmmm I really dig his music so im Ohkay with that I think the welsh and me must have a talkkk me lady come soon.”

Banita too weighed in on the metaphor with an addition of her own. “I’ll be your Selena,” she said. However, we hope they know Selena and Beiber have called it quits on their relationship yet again.

About managing her film and studies, Banita said her main aim in life right now is to graduate. Her exams are coming up in summer while the film releases on April 13. We wonder if we’ll even see her at the film’s promotional events.
