Rishi Kapoor son of Raj Kapoor has spilled the beans on the revival of the legendary 'RK Films' banner. The veteran actor revealed that he would like to see the prestigious banner revived by remaking yesteryear’s film 'Aawara' which starred his father, with his son Ranbir Kapoor. He also said that in the remake, he would like to play the role essayed by his grandfather Prithviraj Kapoor. When asked about the director, Rishi Kapoor made it clear that he would definitely not be the one directing it.
RK Films banner established by Raj Kapoor is one of the oldest banners in Indian film history. The film 'Aawara', was one of its landmark successes which was received well both in India and abroad. However no films were made on the banner for the last decade and half. 'Aa Ab Laut Chale' released in 1999 was the last film made on this banner.
