BiographyEdit

CareerEdit

His first film as a director was Sridevi's Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja (1993). His second was Prem (1995), which was supposed to be Tabu's inaugural film. Both were box office disasters.[4] He continued to make films and got his first hit with Hum Aapke Dil Mein Rehte Hain in 1999.

He is well known for his role as "Calendar" in the hit film Mr. India, alongside Anil Kapoor and Sridevi. He also was noted for his character of "Pappu Pager" in the comedy Deewana Mastana (1997), directed by his friend David Dhawan.

He co-wrote and anchored a TV countdown show, Philips Top Ten, for which he won the Screen Videocon Award.

In 2005, Kaushik directed Arjun Rampal, Amisha Patel and Zayed Khan in Vaada.

In 2007 Kaushik, together with Anupam Kher, who had been his batchmate at NSD, launched a new film company called Karol Bagh Productions.[5] Their first film, Teree Sang, was directed by Satish Kaushik.[6]

His next work is based on the life of Tansen, one of the Navaratna in Akbar the Great's court. It is produced by Rajshri Productions. The role of Tansen will be played by Abhishek Bachchan, and the soundtrack will be composed by Ravindra Jain. The script for the film is being finished. Satish Kaushik is working to promote Haryana's film industry, and is committed to make five films there.

He was cast in the lead role of SAB TV's new show The Great Indian Family Drama, produced by Contiloe productions, as Nawaab Jung Bahadur. Now he decided to make sequel of his hit movie Tere Naam (2003). Recently, he played the role of Tayaji in the film Udta Punjab (2016).

BusinessEdit

Satish Kaushik was a partner in the Chandigarh Film City project with the real estate company, Parsavnath developers.
