Himesh makes Satish Kaushik extra-cautiousJuly 6th, 2009 - 2:04 pm ICT by Sampurn Wire
If you think recession has not hit our tinsel town; put on your thinking cap, again. Not only has it hit small-time production houses; even big producers are now thinking twice to put their money in exceptionally exorbitant projects.
Say for example, when we asked actor-director turned producer Satish Kaushik about his venture “Hey Guju”, which was scheduled to go on floors last year, his reply took us by surprise. We were flabbergasted when he said, “Hey Guju is very close to my heart. Considering the fact that recession has already hit India. And the film demanded advance action and various foreign locations for the shoot; we felt the need to keep it on hold.”
Satish Kaushik turned co-producer with langotiya yaar Anupam Kher under Karol Bagh productions and they are ready with their second film “Teree Sang”, which is slated to be released on August 7.
It needs a mention here that Karol Bagh’s first production “Karzzz” starring Himesh bombed at the box-office. And that Hey Guju was supposed to feature Himesh Reshamiya in a double role. Considering all the facts it seems the phrase “once bitten, twice shy’ perfectly befits this case. What do you say Mr. Kaushik?
