Backstory: Fire at RK Studios burnt a lot of memories
Last year, a fire caused heavy damage to the studios, burning a lot of memories to ashes. Raj Kapoor's 'Mera Naam Joker' mask, the piano used in 'Awara', guns of 'Ram Teri Ganga Maili', all got destroyed.
So did the costumes worn by iconic actresses like Nargis, Vyjayanthimala and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
After the accident, Kapoors spoke about renovating the studios.
An uncertain future also reason behind this decision
While speaking to Mumbai Mirror, Rishi also said an improbable future is the reason behind this decision. He asserted there was enough love between the brothers, but nothing could be said about the kids or grandkids.
"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," Rishi said.
