It is frus­trat­ing to not get good scripts: Pa­tralekhaa

Financial Chronicle - - NONE OF MY BUSINESS -

Twenty-five years af­ter the de­ba­cle of “Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja,” ac­tor-di­rec­tor Satish Kaushik has apol­o­gised to pro­ducer Boney Kapoor for the film which was a dud at the box of­fice. Fea­tur­ing Boney’s wife Sridevi and brother Anil in the lead, the movie was Satish’s de­but as a di­rec­tor. He also paid homage to the Na­tional Award-win­ning ac­tor, who passed away in Fe­bru­ary.

As the film com­pleted 25 years on Mon­day, the veteran ac­tor took to Twit­ter to say sorry to the pro­ducer who went bankrupt af­ter the movie’s re­lease. “Yes 25 yrs ago it was a dis­as­ter at BO but it was my first child and will re­main close to heart. Re­mem­ber­ing madam #Sride­viLivesFor­ever and my sorry to @BoneyKapoor who gave me a break but was broke af­ter the film. Cel­e­brat­ing #25year­sof RKRCKR @AnilKapoor @Javedakhtar­jadu @Anu­pamPKher,” Satish wrote.

He also shared the poster of the film, which also starred Anu­pam Kher and Jackie Shroff. When a user com­mented that “Roop Ki Rani...” was a bad film, Satish wrote back, “... It is not about good or bad af­ter 25yrs. It is about own­ing your fail­ures with your head high in the air... You must be a very suc­cess­ful per­son but try own­ing your fail­ures and I as­sure you, you will be more suc­cess­ful.”

Anil also tweeted say­ing shoot­ing the film was full of ob­sta­cles but it was a “mem­o­rable jour­ney.” “Can’t be­lieve it’s been 25 years for #RKRCKR I re­mem­ber the ob­sta­cles that we faced dur­ing the shoot­ing of this film and af­ter as well but it was still a mem­o­rable jour­ney. We miss the Roop Ki Rani ev­ery day. @BoneyKapoor @satishkaushik2 @Javedakhtar­jadu Anu­pamPKher @bindas­b­hidu,” he wrote.

Anu­pam wrote, “I have great mem­o­ries of #RoopKiRaniChoronKaRaja which com­pletes 25 years. ‘Shai­tan Ki Kasam’ will al­ways be proud of my as­so­ci­a­tion with the film and with @BoneyKapoor @satishkaushik2 @AnilKapoor @bindas­b­hidu and @Sride­viBKapoor. In some fail­ures there are greater suc­cess sto­ries.”

The high­est-bud­get In­dian film with Rs 9 crore (ap­prox­i­mately) at that time, “Roop Ki Rani...” earned mere Rs 2 crore (ap­prox­i­mately).
