The Anil Kapoor-Sridevi starrer Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja was considered to be the most expensive film of its time. Produced by Satish Kaushik’s friend Boney Kapoor, the film completed 25 years today. Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja was the directorial debut of Satish, who took this occasion to tender an apology to his friend.

The actor turned filmmaker shared a poster of Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja featuring Anil Kapoor, Sridevi, Jackie Shroff and Anupam Kher. He apologised to Boney Kapoor in the same tweet. He mentioned that the film was a disaster at the box office, adding that it will remain close to him as it was his first child. He apologised to Boney Kapoor because the film gave Satish a break but the box office flop made Boney lose a lot of money.
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 pic.twitter.com/xdpkxD9JJ1— Anil Kapoor (@AnilKapoor) April 16, 2018
Anil Kapoor, who played the lead role in Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja, also shared a post on Twitter. He said that he misses the film every day, and he remembers the struggles the team faced during the shooting of the film.
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.

The Movie was ahead of its time i think Sir... U had shot some exceptional equences like the TRAIN Sequence....And it was a GRAND, GRAND Movie....— Amol Bidkar (@bidkar_amol) April 16, 2018
But what caught our attention is that Twitter came out in support of Satish’s guts to accept the film's failure and apologise for it. Some people even said that they enjoyed the film. RKRCKR was helmed by Shekhar Kapur in 1987 but he had left the film mid-way, resulting in Satish Kaushik taking over and releasing it in 1993.
