Film producer Boney Kapoor recently opened up about one of his toughest phases in his career, the flop of his much hyped film Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja. In a chat with The New Indian, when asked about the 1993 film, which turned out to be a big flop, Boney shared that when a film of such a big scale, one loses their own money, and also the money of other investors.
“Besides losing your own money, you have lost money which you have borrowed,” he said but added that he has always come back stronger. He recalled that at the time, his first wife Mona Kapoor walked barefoot to Siddhivinayak Temple from his home. “My wife was there. She walked to Siddhivinayak Temple barefoot. My brothers stood with me,” he shared.
Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja starred Anil Kapoor and Sridevi and was directed by Satish Kaushik. The colossal failure of the film was a big shock to the makers. Boney shared that even though he went through big losses, he never changed his phone number to get away from debt collectors. In fact, the producer said that he has had the same two phone numbers since 1994. He shared that unlike other producers, he takes calls from unknown numbers as well, and even calls back when he misses a call. “I always respond to people whether I owe them money, or people I don’t know. This has been my hallmark,” he said.
Boney Kapoor is currently looking forward to the release of Ajay Devgn’s Maidaan and said that besides the cost involved with that film, he doesn’t owe anyone anything. “I have had three cycles of losses. Besides Maidaan, there is not a single penny that I owe anyone. And the money that I owed was a big amount. I liquidated some of my assets , paid off,” he said. Boney said that he sold of some of his assets to pay off his debts.
