Director receives accolades for acting
By Behindwoods News Bureau.
November 09, 2007
Yet another Indian director is receiving accolades for his talent from foreign shores just that this time around it is not for his directing abilities but for his acting. We are talking about director Satish Kaushik for his performance as a Bangladeshi immigrant in the British film Brick Lane directed by British director Sarah Gavron.
Brick Lane

This movie is based on the critically acclaimed novel by Monica Ali, by the same name. It is the story of a young Bangladeshi girl Nazneen played by Tannishta Chatterjee, who settles for an arranged marriage to middle aged Chanu Ahmed played by Satish Kaushik and ends up seeing her soul die a slow death while her sister back home is living life to the fullest. This film set in the 1980’s east London which houses the Bangladeshi community and the backlash it faced from the locals. Monica Ali on seeing the film had praised Satish Kaushik’s performance in an interview to the Guardian and said that it was a slightly unnerving experience because it looked like her character just walked out of the page. Satish was overwhelmed by this and had said "To get such a reaction from the author! Because writers are very wary, you know, if their characters are being portrayed in the right spirit or not." We wish this experience will have a positive influence on his otherwise masala fare he dishes out as a director.
