The very famous RK studio in Mumbai is up for sale. However, that didn’t stoop the Kapoor family to celebrate Ganesh Chaturthi in the studio. Perhaps, for one last time. According to a report, Randhir Kapoor had earlier said that celebrations will be done like before only.
Earlier this year Rishi Kapoor said, “For a while, we did juggle with the idea of renovating the place with state-of-the-art technology. However, in reality, it isn’t always possible for a phoenix to rise from the ashes. We Kapoor’s area very emotional lot but then… 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 RK 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.”
Randhir Kapoor also said, “With the state of the roads and traffic today, no actor comes to Chembur to shoot in this studio. They would rather go to Film City. So, with a very heavy heart, we have decided to let it go. My whole family is very sad, but there’s no other way.”
