The iconic banner RK Films was established by Raj Kapoor in 1948 and it has almost been about 21 years since the banner has not produced anything. The first film produced under the banner was Aag and the film released in 1948 starring the legendary Raj Kapoor and Nargis. In the years since, several other films such as Awaara, Shri 420, Mera Naam Joker, Bobby, Satyam Shivam Sundaram and Ram Teri Ganga Maili had released under the banner. Now, Randhir Kapoor has confirmed his plans of reviving RK Films and has revealed that he will be directing a love story under the banner.
After Raj Kapoor passed away in 1988, Randhir Kapoor took over the production house. In a recent interview with the Times Of India, Randhir Kapoor said, “Well, it’s happening. We are reviving the RK banner now. It will happen soon in a couple of months." He also said that he would be directing a love story. “The film will be a love story. I shall direct it,” he said. However, when asked further, he remained secretive about the cast, and said that the announcement of this film will be grand. “Well, I can’t tell you anymore about it at this point of time (smiles). But we’ll throw out the news of the cast with a bang,” he said.
It has been 21 years since a film was produced under the RK Films banner. The last film was Aa Ab Laut Chalen in 1999, directed by Rishi Kapoor.
Meanwhile, on the personal front, Randhir Kapoor has been absolutely elated and had expressed his joy after his daughter Kareena Kapoor Khan and Saif Ali Khan had announced that they are expecting their second child. While speaking to Mumbai Mirror, Randhir Kapoor had said, “I am absolutely delighted, I have been telling Kareena for so long that Taimur needs a brother or sister to play with. We are all very happy and we pray it’s a healthy, happy child.” ALSO READ: Randhir Kapoor Remembers Rishi Kapoor On Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Li’l Champs; Shares Interesting Anecdotes
