Ashok from Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro (1983)
The film remains memorable for the scene with Kaushik and Naseeruddin Shah speaking on two receivers while in the same room.
Calendar from Mr India (1987)
In this Shekhar Kapur directorial, Kaushik played the iconic role of Calendar, the cook who helped Arun (Anil Kapoor) look after the orphans.
Kashiram from Ram Lakhan (1989)
Kaushik’s dynamic with Kher is amusing as they shuffle between playing employer and employee, and two people who’ve known each other for a long time.
Pappu Pager from Deewana Mastana (1997)
Ten years after Mr India came Deewana Mastana, but here, instead of being Anil Kapoor’s sidekick, Kaushik played the contract killer hired to murder him.
Chanda Mama from Mr. & Mrs. Khiladi (1997)
Clad in an indo-western ensemble, with a printed blue vest suit and an orange headband, Kaushik delivers his dialogues with a conviction that has us believing in horoscopes.
