Ganesh Chaturthi  has always been a special occasion for Kapoor khandaan and they were known for their tradition of celebrating Ganeshotsav every year. The tradition that started almost 70 years ago, saw a huge number of people coming in from all over Chembur to participate. The Kapoor family’s Ganpati celebrations would considered as one of the best in the city and was an occasion where every member of the family would meet and celebrate the festivities and dance at visarjan. Usually, Kareena Kapoor and Karisma Kapoor’s father Randhir Kapoor, was a regular and along with him, his brothers Rishi and Rajeev and also Ranbir Kapoor would make an appearance.

However, things are changing now and as per a report in Bombay Times, the Ganpati celebrations that took place at RK Studios every year will sadly be discontinued. Randhir Kapoor shared the news with BT and said that previous year’s celebration was the last Ganesh Chaturthi celebration for them and now that RK Studios has been demolished they don’t have a place to celebrate the same way they did at RK Studios. The tradition which was started 70 years ago by Randhir Kapoor’s father Raj Kapoor has come to an end. He added, “We all love Bappa and have immense faith in him, but I guess, we can’t continue with the tradition anymore.”

The famed RK Studios in Chembur, Mumbai had to be sold and the Kapoors opened up about the news last August in 2018. It was not economically viable for them and they were not able to cope up with its high maintenance cost.
