R that airs on Sab TV. She currently also appears on ‘Fakebook with Kavita,’ a satirical comedy series telecast on BIG Magic as well as on 92.7 Big FM radio.
In 2001, Kaushik auditioned for a role in the serial ‘Kutumb.’ She got the part and moved to Mumbai to pursue her acting career. Due to her tall stature, Kavita usually got acting roles that were either negative or glamorous in the initial phase of her career.
After Kutumb, Kaushik featured in many serials such as ‘Manya Doshi’ in the widely popular Balaji Telefims production ‘Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii’; as Sub Inspector Anushka in C.I.D; as Naina in the daily noon soap ‘Kumkum’; and as Pallavi in Remix, etc. Her big acting break came when she was offered the lead role of police inspector Chandramukhi Chautala in F.I.R. Her portrayal of the slightly manly inspector’s character not only won her critical acclaim but also won over the hearts of the viewers. She subsequently went on to win many awards, including Best Female Actor In A Comic Role Indian Telly Award, for her role.
Kaushik has also acted in varied movies like ‘Ek Hasina Thi,’ ‘Phillum City,’ and ‘Mumbai Cutting’ as well as an item girl in the song ‘Shakila Bano’ in the 2013 film ‘Zanjeer.’ She is currently shooting as the main female lead in the movie ‘Lollipop Since 1947’ directed by Anirudh Chautala.
Kavita had left F.I.R. for a brief period and started working on another serial called ‘Tota Weds Maina.’ That series was eventually shelved due to low viewership; Kavita then returned as Chandramukhi to F.I. R.
