RK studios are known for its ganeshotsav ceremony which has been going on for over 6 decades. The Kapoors usually went themselves to immerse the Ganesh idol, in a procession, all the way from Chembur to sea near Shivaji Park in Dadar.

This particular year too, Randhir, Rishi Kapoor, Rajiv and Ranbir walked on the same route. However, they were hounded by the media people for 'bytes' in the heavy rain and they ended up getting slapped by the Kapoors. Watch videos here.

Rishi Kapoor denied the allegations of getting drunk on the auspicious occasion and even was quoted saying, "Ganpati visarjan by RK studios in Chembur is one of the biggest processions we’ve been doing for the last 64 years. There was a crowd following us and to top it, heavy rains. Then there was media hounding us into posing and giving bytes and getting in front of us while walking. When people don’t listen, what option do we have but to push? Even the police do the same." He even clarified that Ranbir did not slap or push even as he would not even hurt a fly!

Well, now that the studios are up for sale, we are sure that the Kapoors too will be bogged down by the memories. Do you remember any such incident from RK studio? Tell us in the comments section below.
