Actor Rishi Kapoor often manages to irk people with his frank, in-your-face and witty tweets, but it was his turn to be upset online when he saw a cartoon about the recent fire at RK Studios.

Sharing the cartoon, Rishi wrote, “This is bad. We take objection to this kind of depraved sick humour.” The cartoon shows RK studios burning as Raj Kapoor (from the world beyond) says ‘Fire is a good omen in my life, It all began with Aag’. Aag was Raj Kapoor’s first film as a director and producer and it was also the first to product from RK Studio.

A portion of the Kapoor family’s iconic RK Films And Studios caught fire on September 16. “A studio can be built again but the loss of the irreplaceable memorabilia and costumes of all RK Films, is tragic for all. Fire took it away,” tweeted Rishi, son of the studio’s founder, the legendary Raj Kapoor.

The blaze gutted one of the main shooting venues -- the set of dance reality TV show Super Dancer Season 2, but the shooting was not underway. RK Films has produced films such as Barsaat (1949), Awaara (1951), Boot Polish (1954), Shri 420 (1955) and Jaagte Raho (1956).

The studio was the venue for movies like Jis Desh Me Ganga Behti Hain (1960), Mera Naam Joker (1970), Bobby (1973), the debut film for Rishi Kapoor and Dimple Kapadia, Satyam Shivam Sundaram (1978), Prem Rog (1982), Ram Teri Ganga Maili (1985), which was Raj Kapoor’s last film before his death in June 1988.
