Kareena Kapoor Khan opens her heart on RK studios sale


The Kapoor Khaandan has taken a tough decision of selling the iconic RK studio after 70 years of being built. Kareena Kapoor Khan who has fond memories with the studio says that while the decision is upsetting, she cannot do anything about it.

In a report by DNA, Kareena was quoted saying,”I don’t know how far what is actually happening. In fact, I have been quite under the weather and I haven’t even met my father in the last four or five days… But of course, we have all grown up walking around in those corridors.”

At the Lakme Fashion Week, where Kareena was the showstopper for the finale show, she added,”I think it’s probably something that the family has decided, so it’s upto my father, his brothers and upto them… If that’s what they have decided, so be it.”

In an interview to Mumbai Mirror, Rishi Kapoor confirmed the reports and 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 Kapoors are 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,” he told the daily.”

A part of the studio had caught fire in September 2017 after which the family decided to sell the studio. The brothers were also fearful of the property becoming a cause of fights in the younger generation. Rishi added, “We brothers are strongly bonded. But who knows about our children and grand-children? What if differences crop up in the next generation? The studio would only end up in litigation as so many industrial and textile estates have. There would be family differences and only lawyers would end up charging heavy sums of fee. Do you think my father would have liked to see his labour of love become the subject of courtroom proceedings?”
