- The film clocked 25 years on Monday
- The action-comedy released in 1993
- It was directed by Satish Kaushik and produced by Boney Kapoor
Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja is considered to be one of the most high-budget films of the Nineties. The movie went on floors sometime in 1987 with Shekhar Kapur as the director but after he opted out of the project, Satish Kaushik was signed up to helm the film, which finally released on April 16, 1993. The delay in the film's release had further accentuated the huge budget of the movie but tanked miserably upon release. Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja may have flopped at the box office but turned out to be a cult action-drama film over the years. The film cast both Anil Kapoor and Sridevi as orphans, who befriended each other at an orphanage only to be separated later. Years later, they reunited to avenge the death of their fathers.

Meanwhile, Twitter is making all efforts to uplift Satish Kaushik's spirits, hailing the film as nothing less than "superb". "Your failure doesn't undermine your talent. Your honest admission is the proof that you succeeded later and made a mark on the India cinema," wrote an user while another one demanded that the film be released again. "It's was awesome movie. Train sequence was awesome. Aj bhi copy ho rahe he ye sequence thoughts. Or Romio Naam Mera to dance number tha. It was in 1993.. awesome blockbuster movie. Dobara relese karo."

Actually it was great movie..and keep you glued throughout... Why it turned disaster?? Infact it have many best dialogues like.. Acha hua Bura Hua , Shaitan ki Kasam and the toning of Bete Jaan by @SirPareshRawal . It was a full packed entertainer— Rahul Jain (@rahul_jainrj) April 16, 2018

Here's how Anil Kapoor and Anupam Kher celebrated 25 years of the movie on Twitter:
Can't believe it's been 25 years for #RKRCKR I remember the obstacles that we faced during the shooting of this film & after as well but it was still a memorable journey. We miss the Roop Ki Rani every day. @BoneyKapoor@satishkaushik2@Javedakhtarjadu@AnupamPKher@bindasbhidupic.twitter.com/xdpkxD9JJ1— Anil Kapoor (@AnilKapoor) April 16, 2018
I have great memories of #RoopKiRaniChoronKaRaja which completes 25years. 'Shaitan Ki Kasam' will always be proud of my association with the film & with @BoneyKapoor@satishkaushik2@AnilKapoor@bindasbhidu & @SrideviBKapoor. In some failures there are greater success stories. pic.twitter.com/wWU0bBY2Jt— Anupam Kher (@AnupamPKher) April 16, 2018
Sridevi married Boney Kapoor three years after Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja was made. Khushi and Janhvi are their two children. In February, Sridevi drowned in a Dubai hotel bathroom and was later cremated with state honours in Mumbai. She has posthumously won the Best Actress National Award this year for her performance in MOM.
