Satish Kaushik wants to extend his "global profile"
"I have done a lot of work in Bollywood over the years as an actor and director. I now want to pursue projects that will give me a global profile," the 'Tere Naam' director said.
Kaushik I s here this year as part of the cast of Benegal's 'Road, Movie', an Indo-US co-production that also features Abhay Deol and Tannishtha Chatterjee in pivotal roles.
"The last time I was here, in 2007, my performance in the British film 'Brick Lane' garnered great reviews. It was a real high," Kaushik says.
'Brick Lane' was Sarah Gavron's adaptation of Monica Ali's bestselling novel of the same name, and Kaushik, who usually plays comic sidekicks in mainstream Hindi films, played the part of Chanu Ahmed, middle-aged husband of a younger Bangladeshi girl.
"I am hopeful my character in 'Road, Movie' will fetch similar notices," says the actor-director, who plays a motor mechanic who loves movies in the movie.
The film, which was screened for a select audience, has already generated a buzz at the festival.
Kaushik has another important task to complete in the course of the latest edition of the festival. He has brought along the long-in-gestation script of 'Main Zinda Hoon', the off-beat story of a living villager who is listed as dead in the government's records.
"I am looking for funds for the film here
