Last Saturday, a fire spread out reportedly from the electrical wing of the studio and engulfed the ground floor, which was actually the sets of dance reality show Super Dancer Season 2. In separate tweets, Rishi Kapoor mourned the loss of "irreplaceable memorabilia, writing: "Sad. A major fire broke out at RK Studios. We have lost the iconic Stage 1. Thankfully no casualties nor injuries. All your concerns appreciated" and "A Studio can be built again but the loss of the irreplaceable memorabilia and costumes of all R K Films, is tragic for all. Fire took it away."

Raj Kapoor headlined R K Studio and was only taken over by his son Randhir Kapoor after the legendary actor's death in 1988. Raj Kapoor's brother directed Prem Granth and Rishi Kapoor also helmed Aa Ab Laut Chalen under the production brand based in R K Studio - R K Films.
After <>Aag, Barsaat was the next film that was produced by the studio in 1949, also starring Nargis and Raj Kapoor. Awaara, Shri 420, Jis Desh Mein Ganga Behti Hai, Mera Naam Joker, Bobby, Satyam Shivam Sundaram and Ram Teri Ganga Maili are also some of the movies made by R K Films.
