Kareena Kapoor Khan on Kapoor family selling iconic RK Studio
The studio is located in Chembur and had faced the major fire which affected the glory of the studio. Ever since the studio is facing massive loss. The Kapoor family took the decision of selling the property.
Interestingly, there are five films that had made under the studio which have become cult till now. Satyam Shivam Sundaram, Bobby, Ram Teri Ganga Maili, Mera Naam Joker and Shri 420.
Rishi Kapoor, son of Raj spoke on behalf of the family regarding the same and said, “The investment in rebuilding the studio would just not have yielded sufficient revenue to keep it going. Believe me, we had to take the larger picture into account and take a level-headed decision. Even before the fire, for years R. K. Studio had become a huge white elephant, toting up losses. The few bookings we would get from films, TV serials and ad shoots would expect free parking space, air-conditioning and discounts”.
Talking about the future Kapoor generations, Rishi added, “We brothers are strongly bonded. But who knows about our children and grand-children? What if differences crop up in the next generation? The studio would only end up in litigation as so many industrial and textile estates have. There would be family differences and only lawyers would end up charging heavy sums of the fee. Do you think my father would have liked to see his labor of love becoming the subject of courtroom proceedings?”.
Is Ranbir Kapoor buying the studio?
When asked if his son Ranbir Kapoor is interested in keeping the studio, Rishi reacted saying, “If he has the money, let him buy it from us then. But seriously, that’s a silly question. It’s Ranbir’s time to concentrate on his career, Sanju has validated him as a commercially successful actor”.
He finally spoke about how difficult to sell RK Studio it was for the family to come down to the decision of selling the property. Talking about the same, Rishi said, “Not really,” he said. “We had to place a stone on our hearts. Chhati pe patthar rakkhar, soch samajh kar decision liya hai”.
