Satish Kaushik apologizes to Sridevi and Boney Kapoor. Know why
Actor-director Satish Kaushik has tendered an apology to late Sridevi and her producer-husband Boney Kapoor on Twitter. Satish, in 1993, had directed Anil Kapoor-Sridevi starrer 'Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja' which failed big time at the box office. Boney had backed the expensive project and was left broke. Therefore, on the occasion of the film's 25th anniversary today, Satish apologized for its debacle.

Can’t believe it’s been 25 years for #RKRCKR I remember the obstacles that we faced during the shooting of this film after as well but it was still a memorable journey. We miss the Roop Ki Rani every day. @BoneyKapoor @satishkaushik2 @Javedakhtarjadu @AnupamPKher @bindasbhidu pic.twitter.com/xdpkxD9JJ1— Anil Kapoor (@AnilKapoor) April 16, 2018
Twitter users hailed Satish for accepting the film's failure. "This takes quite a courage to say on social media considering rant now a days for no issues as well. Hats off @satishkaushik2 ji," wrote Jarvik. Dipti said, "It was an entertaining film. It wud have rocked at the BO had it not got delayed. The budget and delay were the decisive factors."
Apart from Sridevi and Anil, 'Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja' also featured Jackie Shroff and Anupam Kher. It was made on a budget of Rs. 9.2 crore (approx ) and had earned close to only Rs. 2.7 crore at the box office.
