The legendary RK Studios, owned by Bollywood's iconic Kapoor family, is up for sale. The two-acre R.K. Studios, headquarters of the film production company, RK films was started by the actor and director, Raj Kapoor. Now, the Kapoor family believes that the renovation of the studios may not be 'a level-headed decision' as Rishi Kapoor told a leading daily.
During the shoot of a dance reality show last year, the studio caught fire and suffered damage, including a part of the studio that gutted. Since then, the family seemed to have been in minds about the decision, considering repair or sale. However, the decision seems to have been made now, as it is financially a smarter decision to sell the studio.
When asked about the same, Kareena Kapoor Khan stated that she was not a part of the decision. "I don't know how far what is actually happening. In fact, I have been quite under the weather and I haven't even met my father in the last four or five days... But of course, we have all grown up walking around in those corridors. I think it's probably something that the family has decided, so it's up to my father, his brothers and up to them... If that's what they have decided, so be it," said the actress to a leading newspaper.
The studio was started in 1948 and has since been responsible for producing some great movies including Awaara, Shri 420, Jis Desh Me Ganga Behti Hain, Mera Naam Joker, Bobby, Satyam Shivam Sundaram, Prem Rog, Ram Teri Ganga Maili. RK Studios was also the iconic backdrop for Ranbir Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor's debut movie, Saawariya in 2007.
