Satish Kaushik, who has essayed several comic characters with elan in the past, will soon be seen doing another one. The film-maker-actor is playing a typical rich, Punjabi man in the upcoming film, Wedding Pulao.
The film that marks the debut of cinematographer Binod Pradhan as a director, is a tale of love and friendship. It also marks the debut of Anushka Ranjan as an actress.
“I play the hero’s dad, who is loud-mouthed like a typical Punjabi. He is over-the-top and brags all the time,” says Kaushik, who is happy to be a part of Pradhan’s directorial debut. “We go back a long time. He was the cinematographer of Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron as well. Our friendship began then.”
Kaushik is also looking forward to the release of Promise Dad directed by Ritesh Sinha. “It is a very beautiful film that talks about the aspirations of a young boy to fulfill his father’s dreams. I play the father of the boy,” he informs as he says that the film has been wrapped up a while ago and should release this year. “The backdrop of the film is ice-skating and has been shot really well,” he adds.
