Kareena Kapoor Khan Has This To Say About RK Studios Going Up For Sale
After the Kapoors opened up about their decision to sell of the famous RK Studios, which was partially gutted in fire last year, now Kareena Kapoor Khan has spoken up about the decision. Before her walk at the Lakme Fashion Week last night, here's what Kareena had to say
Kareena Kapoor Khan made heads turn as she walked the ramp at the Lakme Fashion Week last night. Reportedly, the actress has been under the weather for some time now, but she looked stunning when she took to the ramp at LFW. Speaking to the media at LFW, she opened up about the sale of their family heritage, the RK Studios.
“I don't know how far what is actually happening. In fact, I have been quite under the weather and I haven't even met my father in the last four or five days. But of course, we have all grown up walking around in those corridors. I think it's probably something that the family has decided, so it's upto my father, his brothers and up to them. If that's what they have decided, so be it,” said Kareena.
Just yesterday we informed you how the Kapoors have decided to put the RK Studios up for sale. The late actor-producer-director Raj Kapoor’s wife Krishna Raj Kapoor along with sons Randhir Kapoor, Rishi Kapoor and Rajiv Kapoor, daughters Ritu Nanda and Reema Jain, all came together to take a joint decision. Reportedly maintaining the studio was no longer turning out to be practical.
A major part of the RK Studios was gutted in a fire last year in September. Rishi Kapoor had said that they would come back stronger and remake the studio with world-class facilities. However, when asked about the sale Rishi had said to Mumbai Mirror, “For a while, we did juggle with the idea of renovating the place with state-of-the-art technology. However, in reality it isn’t always possible for a phoenix to rise from the ashes. We Kapoors are very emotional lot but then...The investment in rebuilding the studio would just not have yielded sufficient revenue to keep it going. Believe me, we had to take the larger picture into account and take a level-headed decision. Even before the fire, for years R. K. Studio had become a huge white elephant, toting up losses. The few bookings we would get from films, TV serials and ad shoots would expect free parking space, air-conditioning and discounts.”
