Satish Kaushik Praises Co-star Neena Gupta; Says He Admires Her Way Of Living- Deets Inside
Neena Gupta and Satish Kaushik’s friendship goes way back. Both have worked in several films together over the years. They are also alumni of the same drama school, the National School of Drama. Their friendship started when they were colleagues and has evolved beautifully over the period. Both the artists even revealed that Satish had proposed to Neena to marry her after she got pregnant in the 1980s. Neena was in a relationship with well-known cricketer Viv Richards when that happened. Neena appreciated the gesture very much and was emotionally moved by it. However, she refused and decided to raise her daughter as a single mother.
The projects they did together include films like Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro and Mandi which are evergreen. The duo is set to reunite professionally as they will be working together in the film “Kaagaz 2”. Although this time the situation is different as the film will be directed by Satish Kaushik while Neena will be playing a prominent role in the film. It will be interesting to see how this director-actor duo will turn out and how it would affect the film in general. Anupam Kher will also be a part of the film.
Recently Satish shared his thoughts on Neena and praised her for living life on her terms. He said “With Anupam, we have been working on and off together but with Neena, I am working after almost 13 years. She is a very old friend of mine. We knew each other before our college days, as we both used to live in Karol Bagh in Delhi and had a kind of the same upbringing.”
He further said “Neena has always stood for herself in a society which did not accept a lot of things back then. She lived on her terms and made society accept her as she is and that is something I have always admired in her.” Even the audience salutes Neena for her bravery and the way she has made a name for herself in the industry. All her recent performances whether it is for a web show like Panchayat or a film like 83 or Badhai Ho have been very well received.
Kaagaz 2 is the sequel to a biographical comedy film written and directed by Satish and produced by Salman Khan and Nishant Kaushik. Furthermore, Kaagaz 2 is a remake of the Malayalam movie Nirnnayakam (2015). The original Kaagaz (2021) starred Pankaj Tripathi, and Monal Gajjar among others while Kaagaz 2 has Anupam Kher, Neena Gupta, Darshan Kumaar, and more.
