Satyajit Kharkar, a youth from Aurangabad, is working as an IT professional in the USA, but still he has conserved his talent in art through activities like plays, movies and short-film. Today, he is a renowned director whose movie 'Coin Toss' has received tremendous response from all over Europe.
Aurangabad's MGM College of Journalism and Communication along with Yashvantrao Chavan Pratishthan, Mumbai, are organising a special show of 'Coin Toss' on March 30. The show will start at 5.30 pm at Rukhmini Hall of JNEC.
Satyajit, a student of Saraswati Bhuvan School and JNEC, has settled as IT professional in Chicago. Even in his busy schedule, he spared some time for his love towards art and is now an active member of the Maharashtra Mandal in Chicago.
Thinking about producing movies
Satyajit wrote a Marathi play 'Chal Sandhi Sadhu' in his college life. His many plays were telecasted on radio. Meanwhile, he acted in several plays. After IT graduation, he worked for some time in India and then shifted to Chicago.
One day, he gave an audition for a play and got selected. After the play, he acted in some other plays. To give a professional touch to his talent, he completed a short- term course in acting in Chicago. At the same time, he decided to produce a movie and, along with his brother Rahul Kharkar, formed 'Anmol Movies.'
My Dad My Hero
Satyajit's first directed film was 'My Dad My Hero,' which received some awards also. Later, he directed 'DWT,' a short-film in English to spread message of habit of talking on cellphone while driving, and a Marathi documentary 'Jagnyacha Arth Gavsala,' a story of a handicapped boy and his parents.
Cinema is an international language
Though 'Coin Toss' is an English movie, Satyajit believes that language is never a problem for a good movie. In fact, cinema itself is a language of the world.
Chance of interaction with Satyajit
Satyajit is going to interact with his audience after the special show. Organisers principal Prataprao Borade, Aparna Kakkad, principal Rekha Shelke, zonal president Nandkishor Kagliwal and secretary Mukund Bhogale have appealed to people to be present for the event and to encourage him and his art.
