The Iconic RK to be sold soon: Rishi Kapoor
Actor Rishi Kapoor has confirmed that the Kapoor family, has decided to sell off the iconic RK Studio with any objections from the other family members, the studio was established by the legendary late actor Raj Kapoor some four decades past at Chembur, Mumbai. In an interview to city Mirror, Rishi Kapoor has said that while there is also an emotional attachment to the place, the studio “had become a huge white elephant, toting up losses.”
“We brothers have a very strong bond amongst ourselves. However, who knows about our children and grandchildren as to what would they do? What if variations happen within the next generation? The studio would solely find yourself in the legal proceeding as such a lot of industrial and textile estates have. There would be family differences and solely lawyers would find yourself charging a good sum of fee. Do you think my father would have likable to check his labor of affection and love become the topic of court proceedings?” Rishi said while talking concerning the choice of the Kapoor family of selling the iconic RK Studio.
Last year, a fire broke out into the RK Studio building throughout the shoot of reality show Super Dancer 2, that destroyed priceless RK Films record.

Iconic films like Awaara (1951), Shree 420 (1955), Mera Naam Joker (1970) and policeman (1973) among others were shot within the studio.
Rishi Kapoor further said that there’s no timeline and it might take up to 2 days, months or years in the selling of the beloved studio.
