RK Studio will be rebuilt, confirms Rishi Kapoor

A major fire destroyed the iconic stage 1 of RK Studio four days ago. Raj Kapoor had established this studio decades ago. Though there were no casualties reported precious memorabilia of Kapoors was destroyed by the fire.

After the fire broke out, Rishi Kapoor had said, “I still cannot believe it. I'm partially in denial even now. I spent several hours looking around the studio and as the embers fell, I felt distressed and helpless. Yet, here I am at home and I'm still thinking that perhaps it was just a bad dream."

The actor added, “My mother is devastated. She keeps indifferent health and we asked her not to come to the studio because the fire was quite bad. There was smoke bellowing all around.” 

Rishi Kapoor took Twitter and wrote: “2017 September 16th. Gutted by a devastating inferno. Scars shall remain but will build a state of the art studio.”

“My brothers and I can build the four walls again and even add a roof. But how can we compensate the loss of the precious memorabilia? That will never come back. Countless films, besides those made under our home banner, have been shot at RK Studio.It has also been the venue for our Holi and Ganpati celebrations. The loss is not just ours as a family, it is a loss for the entire film fraternity,” he had earlier said.
