Production houses hold lots of memories and films that constitute a good trace in the audience mind. It felt sad to know about the R.K Studio of Mumbai which has been sold to the  Godrej properties due to some financial imbalance of the Kapoor family. Founded in 1948 R.K. studio is one of the oldest production houses of India. ‘Aag’ was the first movie produced under the banner of R.K. Studio.  Many  other acclaimed and  marvelous films like Barsaat(1949), Jis Desh Mein Ganga Behti Hai(1960), Mera  Naam  Joker(1970), Bobby (1973), Satyam Shivam  Sundaram(1978) and Raj Kapoor’s last film Ram  Teri Ganga Maili(1985) fascinated  the Bollywood industry towards a new  avenue.

After the death of Raj Kapoor in 1988, Randhir Kapoor took over the studio. His younger brother Rajiv Kapoor directed Prem Granth(1996), and Rishi Kapoor directed Aa Ab Laut Chalen (1999). After these, the Kapoors have produced no more films under the banner of R.K. Films.

The studio used to preserve all the costumes used in the films but suddenly on 16th  September 2017, there caught fire in R.K. Studio, and everything collapsed. The Kapoor family then decided to sell the iconic R.K. Films and studios built by the legendary actor Raj Kapoor to Godrej properties due to heavy losses. On 3rd May 2019, it was officially announced and told that Godrej properties are starting a new project in Chemchur Mumbai where they will begin to build a residential complex in place of the legendary Raj Kapoor’s studio.

It is a tearful message to the Bollywood industry as the studio gave birth to the famous films of that time and its just a history now. The production houses in Guwahati are at the high end to reach the level of RK.Studio. Still, production houses like EGP are working hard to make legendary and marvelous films for enriching the Assamese film industry.
