Satish Kaushik’s directorial debut Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja holds the place in history books as one of the most expensive films of its time that failed at the box office when it released. Star Anil Kapoor, actor Anupam Kher who played the villain and director Kaushik all remembered the film and its late actress on Twitter.
Kapoor wrote about the long process of making the film, which took around six years to complete. “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,” he wrote.
He also paid tribute to his co-star and sister-in-law, and wrote, “We miss the Roop Ki Rani every day.”

Kaushik too has fond memories of the infamous film, he called it “his first child” and said it will remain close to his heart. He took over the directing duties on the film when Shekhar Kapur left the production midway.
He apologised to producer Boney Kapoor for the financial difficulties he faced after the release of the film, “My sorry 2 @BoneyKapoor who gave me a break bt was broke after d film [sic]. celebrating #25yearsof RKRCKR”.

The villain of the film, Anupam Kher, too mentioned he had great memories from the film and went on to say, “In some failures there are greater success stories.” Indeed, even though the film was panned by audiences and critics at the time, many recall the film and its songs fondly even today.
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.
