Rishi Kapoor - Studio Can Be Rebuilt, Not the Memorabilia

Rishi Kapoor talks about the memorabilia and precious loss after the fire mishap at RK Studios

Rishi had expressed grief over the fire that broke out at the RK Studios recently.

On September 16, a portion of the Kapoor family's iconic RK Films And Studios, which was established by legendary Bollywood actor & director Raj Kapoor in Mumbai in 1948, had got engulfed in a major fire. The 65-year-old actor did not find a cartoon related to the RK Studio fire accident even slightly amusing and called it "depraved sick humor". The fire was confined on the ground floor of the studio building in the electrical wing and thick dark smoke enveloped the entire area. The cartoon shows RK studios burning as Raj Kapoor (from the world beyond) says "Fire is a good omen in my life, It all began with Aag". Rishi Kapoor, who was quite saddened by the massacre, lashed out on Twitter when he came across a cartoon that featured the unfortunate incident. "All your concerns appreciated", read one tweet.

He tweeted, "A Studio can be built again but the loss of the irreplaceable memorabilia and costumes of all RK Films, is tragic for all".

Unlike other Bollywood studios of the time period, R.K. Films was able to preserve all the costumes used in its films but recent fire took it all away.
