Taking to Twitter, Kaushik wrote, “Yes 25 yrs ago it was a disaster at BO bt it was my first child & will remain close to heart. Remembering madam #SrideviLivesForever & my sorry 2 @BoneyKapoor who gave me a break bt was broke after d film.celebrating #25yearsof RKRCKR”

Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja was one of the most expensive Hindi films to be made, when it was released in the 1993. The film was marred by considerable delays after its original director, Shekhar Kapur left and Kaushik was roped in as his replacement. The film had failed miserably at the box office. Anil Kapoor and Sridevi were two lead protagonists in the film, where they played the characters of two orphans. Anupam Kher was the lead villain, while Jacky Shroff had a small role in it too.

Anil Kapoor too wrote on Twitter while fondly remembering the film, which has just completed 25 years since its release. He wrote, “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 @bindasbhidu”

Kher, for his part, wrote, “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.”

Sridevi had married Boney Kapoor three years after Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja was released. The legendary actor passed away in February this year after accidentally drowning in a bath tub at the hotel she was staying in. Boney Kapoor and Sridevi have two daughter, Janhvi Kapoor and Khushi Kapoor.
