Bollywood celebs heartbroken over burnt RK Films

Bollywood celebrities have expressed their sadness after a fire burnt down the iconic RK Films and Studios.

Bollywood celebrities like Karan Johar, Farah Khan and Vikram Bhatt have expressed their sadness after a fire burnt down the iconic RK Films and Studios here on Saturday.

A major fire broke out in the studio in Chembur. It gutted one of the main shooting venues -- the set of dance reality TV show "Super Dancer Season 2".

The studio, founded by late actor-filmmaker Raj Kapoor in 1948, was the venue for movies like "Jis Desh Me Ganga Behti Hain" (1960), "Mera Naam Joker" (1970), "Bobby" (1973), "Satyam Shivam Sundaram" (1978), "Prem Rog" (1982) and "Ram Teri Ganga Meli" (1985), which was the founder's last film before his death in June 1988.

Here is what some of the celebrities tweeted:

Karan Johar: Heartbreaking and unfortunate incident at RK studios... The archival loss is truly sad for all RK lovers such as myself.

Farah Khan: Such sad news. Have shot so many songs there including 'Happy New Year'. Iconic studio.

Vikram Bhatt: The images of the iconic RK Studios in flames fills me with despair. Shot the climax of 'Raaz' there. It holds a special place in my heart..

Sophie Choudry: I'm heartbroken to hear this. Beautiful studio, what memorabilia. Shot there for my video 'Ek pardesi' and so many other things. RK Studios.
