For the Kapoor family of Bollywood, Prithvi theatre is one of the emotional links more than just studios. On one hand, it was deeply disheartening for the Kapoors to put up the 'For Sale' sign on the iconic RK Studio. On the other hand, they are celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Prithvi Theatre happily.
Though it can’t be blamed or lessening anything but the matter of the fact is, the iconic RK Studio was built by Raj Kapoor in the Fifties, and Prithvi Theatre was built by Shashi Kapoor and his wife Jennifer Kendal in 1978. The Kapoors mentioned why RK Studio has become a big investment without any returns and that is getting tough for the family to maintain.
