Bollywood has been always in the front row when it comes to celebrating any festivals. Ganesh Chaturthi is one of them as it is a popular festival in B-Town from Salman Khan to Shilpa Shetty to Jeetendra, many actors celebrate Bappa's homecoming every year with pomp and fervor. But if we talk about the best and the oldest Ganesh Chaturthi, which is celebrated in RK Studios as the celebrations at the RK Studios have been well-known and people from all around the city come to Chembur to celebrate the festival. It is a tradition for Kapoor to come together for the festival every year.
For many decades, Kapoor family has been welcoming Lord Ganesha on this auspicious day, but this Ganesh Chaturthi seems to be the last at the RK Studio. Well, there is not any secret that RK Studio is on sale. After a major part of the 70-year-old studio was gutted in the fire last year, Kapoor decided to let go of the two-acre studio since the renovation doesn't seem like an economically viable idea.
Talking about the decision of putting RK studios on sale, Randhir had earlier told the Media, "It’s not economically viable for us to set up a new studio - we had to dismantle the entire place after the fire. It’s, even more, an emotional loss than the monetary loss. We all have just lost the entire memorabilia of Raj Kapoor. Whatever had been built by Raj Kapoor had burnt down. Everything is gone."
RK Studios, the headquarters of the film production company RK Films, was founded and named after the Great Showman, Raj Kapoor, in 1948. Many hit films including 'Barsaat', 'Awaara', 'Jagte Raho' 'Shree 420', 'Sangam', 'Bobby' and 'Prem Rog' were shot at the studio.
