"Corona can't stop the zeal and passion of movies. We have to fight it with courage and safety measures. #Love Movies #Love Acting," the actor captioned the picture.

Kaushik is awaiting the release of his next directorial "Kaagaz", starring Pankaj Tripathi.

The film is based on the life of Bharat Lal aka Lal Bihari from Azamgarh, who fought a legal battle for 18 years to prove that he is alive.

Though "Kaagaz" was completed much before the nation-wide lockdown was announced, it stands unreleased due to the closure of cinema halls.
