Late actor Raj Kapoor’s RK Studios, which is located in Chembur, Mumbai, has been bought by Godrej Properties for an undisclosed amount. Rishi Kapoor had earlier said the Kapoors had collectively taken the decision to sell RK Studios as it had become increasingly difficult to maintain the place over the years. In 2017, a fire broke out in the studio during the shoot of reality show Super Dancer 2, which ended up destroying precious memorabilia, including costumes worn by actors such as Vyjanthimala, Nargis and Aishwarya Rai. Here are a few photos of the Kapoors and other celebrities at RK Studios.
