Dehradun based prominent journalist, Satish Sharma has been roped in to play an important part in Karan Razdan’s Hindutva. Satish will play the role of lead actress Sonarika Bhadoria’s father in the film. The cast comprises Dipika Chikhalia, Anup Jalota, Ashish Sharma, Sonarika Bhadoria, Ankit Raaj, Mohd. Reza, amongst others. The maiden feature film of Karan Razdan Kreatives production house is produced by Natarajan Balasubramaniam, Mukesh Gaba, Sharon Nadan and Karan Razdan. It is written and directed by Karan Razdan. The music is composed by Ravi Shankar and the lyrics are written by Shweta Raj.
Satish, who has been part of many big Bollywood films like Sultan, PM Narendra Modi, Maazi, Viraam, Genius, said, “I am elated that the film is being shot in my state Uttarakhand. Our state is the abode of Gods and the film also conveys the message of human spirit, love and friendship. During the pandemic, it is important that films start making business and when things improve, people start watching a film in theatre. Theatre-film-watching experience does not match anything at all.”
Satish Sharma has landed interesting roles, in his films, earlier too. While helping a friend, writer-director Nitin Shingal, to scout locations in Mussoorie he was offered a role in director Jaideep Chopra’s 2013 thriller Maazii, which starred Sumit Nijhawan and Mona Wasu. He followed that by playing the chief minister in GOL – Gangs of Little, a Vaibhav Vikaas-directed film which starred Roshni Walia. Then director Manoj Sati offered him a role in Pampapur Ki Ramlila, which features Gulshan Grover and Rajpal Yadav and was partly shot in Uttarakhand.
His future projects include films like Bole Chudiyan, Firkee, Vissh the Poison, Amangal and a crime-based web series. He said, “I am happy that after coming from a writing and publishing background, I was able to also act and pursue my passion in films. Karan Razdan is a highly talented writer and director and it is a privelege to work with him.”
