In the unfortunate incident, a major part of RK Studios burned down to ashes. Rishi Kapoor, had revealed the extent of the losses in an interview.

Talking about the losses, Rishi had said that the family has lost all the memories built through the years, "Everything was gone, including the famous joker mask Raj Kapoor wore in Mera Naam Joker. There were costumes from every RK film, from Awaara to Chalen. Most of the stuff was kept neatly in trunks and some of it was even labelled,” he had revealed.

He further added that Kapoors had saved all the costumes worn by RK heroines at the studio and they have lost all of it, “The costumes worn by every RK heroine, from Nargis to Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, is lost. The jewellery worn by Padmini in Jis Desh Mein Ganga Behti Hai was also stored here with a lot of love. There were spears, sabres, artefacts, furniture and other regalia used for the various shoots. The Mera Naam Joker mask and clothes... Dabboo and I couldn't believe what hit us. This is probably why they say that one should never put all eggs in one basket. But for us, this was our father's legacy, and it was a treasure trove," Rishi Kapoor had revealed.
