Kuldeep Kaushik: For direction, one needs to slog a bit long!

Actor, writer, producer-turned-director Kuldeep Kaushik believes that it takes a little long slog to run a film project.

“I have worked with Anurag (Basu) dada for a lot of films and he has also made me work for projects in various departments such as life in a subway more tv shows love story, Dada says that it is necessary for a director to learn everything from clapping to budgeting, acting, sound recording, writing, production and direction. Now, that I have directed my first Hindi feature film, I understand why it is extremely important to focus on every field,” says UPit on his visit to Lucknow.

After trying his hand in different fields, Kaushik left for Mumbai in 2004. “I played cricket, boxed, worked as a sales executive because I had no vision for the future. Then I realized that I want to direct films. So, after working in various departments for almost 18 years, this is my first directorial debut. I can very well understand why in Hollywood in the 40s and 50s, getting into direction after mastering different areas. He says.

Kaushik started with TV series remix And then did theater as well, working in the production and direction departments. His first solo directorial was a Punjabi film Vadda Artifact (2018) then made his debut as a writer-director. His latest project was shot entirely in Uttar Pradesh, with a large number of crew members from the region.

Talking about his UP Connect, Kaushik says, “I was born in Meerut in my Nanihal (mother home) where I completed my early studies but my formal education eventually took place in Delhi. Both my younger brother and sister were born there while my father is from Bulandshahr. So, shooting my film male suri There was a conscious decision in Mathura and Vrindavan.”

Talking further about his film, he says, “Our DOP Vikas Babu, Casting Director Vivek Yadav and actor Kiran Lata Bharti who plays the coach (national level basketball player) are from Lucknow. Also, 12 female actors are from different places including UP, as it is a pan-India story inspired by real events. It was a deliberate decision not to cast popular actors (besides Lalit Parimu) as the story itself is the real hero of the film.

Kaushik’s next film is again a women-centric film. “This time the title will be veiled woman And it is about the wives of 12 ex-servicemen. We have seen a lot of movies based on army personnel but this is with their families. I want to shoot the film in UP again,” he concluded.
