Kaushik’s latest directorial was the film “Kaagaz”, starring Pankaj Tripathi. The film, inspired by real events, released in January.
Speaking on why he chose to come back to direction after a gap of six years, Satish said, “I read a news article about Lal Bihari Mritak many years ago and I was touched by his journey. When I researched about him, I felt that his story deserved to be told and I wanted to do that myself. That’s why I decided to helm this project after a gap of six years.”
“Kaagaz” is a satire based in a small village in Uttar Pradesh. Tripathi plays Lal Bihari Mritak, a man who was officially declared dead. The story narrates how he had to work towards proving that he is alive.
“Kaagaz” also features Mita Vashisht and Amar Upadhyay, and is presented by Salman Khan Films with Satish Kaushik Entertainment Production.
