Today, in the year 1969 released Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s Satyakaam…It is said that when Mukherjee was casting Satyakaam he was most worried about finding a suitable child star to play Ashok Kumar’s grand child in the film. Hrishida had worked with Baby Sarika and Master Sachin in Majhli Didi and decided to cast Sarika in the role of a boy.
Sarika had a crucial scene with Sharmila Tagore and Ashok Kumar in the film and on the day of the shoot everyone was tense if the little one will live up to the scene. She did, and with such conviction that she received a standing applause from the unit.
Interestingly Sarika did two films with all her co-stars. Majhli Didi, Satyakaam with Dharmendra. Satyakaam, Aashirwaad with Ashok Kumar and Satyakaam, Griha Pravesh with Sharmila Tagore…
