In ‘Road, Movie’, Satish Kaushik’s performance has been widely appreciated at all the international film festivals.
So, what Satish Kaushik has to say about this image change? Satish Kaushik says, “Unfortunately, in Bollywood I have been mostly offered only comic roles and few of those characters earned huge popularity. But when it comes to west, I have done very different roles whether it’s ‘Brick Lane’ or my latest venture ‘Road, Movie’. I’m extremely happy that I earned a place with audience and received their love, affection and respect. But, I don’t think I have formed any image among international audience.”
