Reportedly, four fire tenders and three water tankers have just rushed towards R. K. Studio in Chembur, Mumbai. There are reports of a major fire break out at the spot right now. As we all know, the famous film studio was both established by and named after the legendary Bollywood actor Raj Kapoor. It was founded in 1948, one year after India gained independence.
Like every other year, the Kapoor family recently celebrated Ganesh Chaturthi at R. K. Studio and we had even shared some photos of Rishi Kapoor and Ranbir Kapoor at the Ganpati visarjan.
Several onlookers have posted videos and pictures of the venue on fire.

We hope everyone’s safe and things get under control soon.
Co-incidentally, the first film ever produced by the studio was titled Aag.
