The Show must go on, but curtains will have to fall on this one

The eastern suburbs of Mumbai, Chembur, will be soon deprived of the iconic R. K. Studio, built by Raj Kapoor in 1940s. On 26th August, Rishi Kapoor, the youngest of the Kapoor Khandaan, shared this piece of information in an exclusive interview to Mumbai Mirror.

He, on behalf of his mother, Krishna Raj Kapoor, brothers Randhir and Rajiv, and sisters Ritu Nanda and Rima Jain, confirmed to have taken a collective decision to sell the 2 acre studio after deliberating over a period of time, especially after a major part of it was gutted in a fire in September last year

R. K. Films was formed in 1948, however, their first commercial venture Aag (1948) did not meet it’s required success. The studio only triumphed it’s victory with their 2nd venture Barsaat (1949). After then, the studio has been host to several other successful and classic endeavours, which have left their mark in Bollywood cinema.
