Raj Kapoor films to be converted into digital prints

The golden hits of legendary showman Raj Kapoor - such as Bobby, Prem Rog and Satyam, Shivam, Sundram - are all set to be digitalised after RK Studios announced its partnership with UFO Moviez, a pioneer in digital cinema solutions.

RK Studios will throw open its original film prints library to the solutions provider to be converted into the digital widescreen format.

Commenting on the decision to go digital, Raj Kapoor's son and the torchbearer of RK Studios, Randhir Kapoor, said in New Delhi, "The films have a limited shelf life and the print quality deteriorates with the passage of time and repeated screening.

We thought it is appropriate to have them released in digital prints to preserve these much-loved films for eternity."
