Director-actor Satish Kaushik is best known for his roles in movies like ‘Mr. India’ and ‘Calendar’. He made his debut as a filmmaker in the year 1993 with the film ‘ Roop Ki Rani Choro Ka Raja’ which boasted of a multi-starrer cast of Sridevi, Anil Kapoor, and Anupam Kher. However, the multi-crore film failed to make an impact at the box-office.
As per a report in Times Now, he recently opened up about the setbacks, and disappointments he faced in his life after the movie, and what he learned out of it all.
First, he recalled his sojourn from Delhi to Mumbai 42 years ago to make a career in Bollywood. He said, “I was in a textile mill for one year, after coming to Bombay, just to know the city. I did not know anyone. Slowly things got better and that struggle was there.”
He continued, “After Roop Ki Rani, Choron Ka Raja, I went down and had more failures. Initially, it was the whole struggle to make it to Bollywood.”
He said, “You make it and then you fall. You accept your failures as much as you are successful and that is why I am still working, acting, producing and doing my theatre. Do not get bogged down by your failures. Take it normally and at the age of 54, I am still acting in back to back films”.
On the greatest lesson he has learnt all these years, he stated, “Be good to people always. You learn so many lessons at this age when you have worked for 40 years in the film industry.”
