Satish Kaushik returns on Television

This year, the audience will see more of me as an actor: Satish Kaushik

For Satish Kaushik, The Great Indian Family Drama is a comeback of sorts on television.  The actor-director, who plays a nawab in this stand – up comedy series, says, “I am doing TV after 16 years and it’s very special for me. The role is a delicious one – that of a nawab who has lost everything except his nawabi attitude. It gave me a chance to play with the language, style, especially  since the show is set in Lucknow. It’s nicely written and I’m enjoying being part of it.”

What hooked Satish to the show was its format. “It’s almost like doing a play. We are performing for a live audience and I’m putting my theatre experience to good use,” he laughs. Taking about his co-stars on the show, he says, “Both Archana and Navneet are fantastic actors. We improvise on the gag and try to make it more interesting. It’s possible primary because we are great friends ad have good chemistry.”

Satish was last seen on television anchoring a countdown show, Top 10. Ask him how the television scene has changed in the last few years, and he says, “It has made tremendous progress and I think it will become even bigger in the next five years. There are some interesting sitcoms and historical shows . The serials have a racy format. It’s almost like cinema has come to the tube.”

Will we see him more on television then? “Why not?” he asks. “Acting is my first profession and I’ve been p;art of the television industry before. In fact, this year, the audience can see more of me as an actor, be it on films or TV. I was lying low as an actor because of my productions. But now. I’ve taken up some interesting assignments.”

The Great Indians Family Drama airs Saturday- Sunday at 9 pm, on Sab TV.
