Mumbai | It’s been over 15 years since RK Films made any films and actress Kareena Kapoor Khan reveals as of now there are no plans of reviving the banner. Time and again there have been rumours that RK Films, the banner established by the late filmmaker Raj Kapoor, will be revived.
There are no plans of reviving the banner. We have not thought about it. My grandfather had made so many films and launched such a good established banner. We made some really good films but at the moment there is nothing happening, Kareena said.
Kapoor established RK Films in 1948. The films made under the banner include Aag, Barsaat, Awaara, Boot Polish, Jagte Raho, Shri 420, Jis Desh Men Ganga Behti Hai, Mera Naam Joker, Bobby, Satyam Shivam Sundaram, Ram Teri Ganga Maili and others.
When Kapoor died in 1988 in the middle of shooting Henna, his son Randhir took over the studio. Randhir Kapoor directed Henna, Dharam Karam, while Rajiv Kapoor helmed Prem Granth and Rishi Kapoor made Aa Ab Laut Chalen in 1999 which was the last film made under the banner.
The Kapoor family has presided over show business across four generations from Prithviraj Kapoor to Raj Kapoor to his three sons — Randhir, Rishi and Rajiv — to Karisma, Kareena and Ranbir Kapoor.
