Banita Sandhu was recently seen in season 3 of the British series Bridgerton. She played the role of Miss Malhotra in the new season.

The stars of Bridgerton are known for bringing the Regency era to life on screen, but it seems they're just as happy to cut loose and embrace modern trends. Recently, the cast of Bridgerton Season 3 actors, including newcomers and familiar faces, joined the viral dance craze for Beyoncé’s hit song ‘Cuff It’.

The video, shared by cast members Emma Naomi and Caleb Obediah, features Nicola Coughlan (Penelope Featherington), Luke Newton (Colin Bridgerton), Claudia Jessie (Eloise Bridgerton), and the Season 3 addition, Banita Sandhu (Miss Malhotra), along with others from the cast. The group is energetic and clearly having a blast as they put their own spin on the playful choreography that has taken the internet by storm.

Dressed in Regency era attire, a far cry from their Bridgerton finery, the cast members move with surprising ease and enthusiasm. Coughlan, known for her comedic timing on the show, brings a touch of her signature humor to the dance, while Newton shows off some surprisingly smooth moves. Jessie's infectious energy is a highlight, and Sandhu seamlessly fits in, adding a fresh vibe to the group dynamic.

Another video was shared simply with a few cast members but Claudia was totally killing it in that too. Social media has been abuzz with reactions to the video, with fans showering the cast with praise for their dance moves and their overall enjoyment.

The ‘Cuff It’ challenge became a popular way for celebrities and everday people alike to showcase their dancing skills and appreciation for Beyoncé’s album, Renaissance. The song itself is a sultry and inviting R&B groove, perfect for letting loose and having fun.

Banita Sandhu was recently seen in season 3 of the British series Bridgerton. She played the role of Miss Malhotra in the new season. Part 1 of the series premiered on May 16, 2024, with Part 2 released on June 13, 2024. In an exclusive interview with Bollywood Hungama, Sandhu talked about cracking the audition during a vacation and how she had to quickly fly back to London. She said, “The project came just as an audition. Actually, it was in the summer of 2022 and my agent in the UK sent me a self-tape. I literally shot it and two days later, I had a call saying I got it. I was on holiday at the time. So I had to pack up my stuff and go back to London really quickly. And then next thing I knew I was in costume trials like it all happened very quickly.”

Speaking of the series, Sandhu admitted she hadn’t read the books but had watched the show. She continued, “I hadn't read the books before. But I've obviously watched the seasons before. I was really lucky to meet Julia Quinn, who is the author of the books. She's a wonderful writer, and I was telling her how excited I am for the future seasons and to go back and read the books.”

When asked what it about the show that left her awestruck, Sandhu added, “It's such a grand scale of production. But the attention to detail was what impressed me the most, because of just the level of detailing in the costume and the makeup in the sets. We would shoot in these real manors in England. We'd go to these different locations outside of London; we'd all be staying in a hotel; we'd be doing night shoots for the ballroom scenes. For one ballroom scene, it would take like at least four to five days. But it was just the grand scale of a production and there were so many moving parts, but everything worked so seamlessly, which was the craziest thing because one thing could derail the whole production. But the way it just kept moving, it was like a big piece of machinery. And it was a beautiful machinery to say.”

On the work front, Banita Sandhu will be starring in Adivi Sesh’s Goodachari 2, marking her debut in the Telugu film industry.
