Kapoors- Largest on-screen family of Bollywood
It is usual for children to emulate their parents and family, and it is also common for star children to follow in their parents’ footsteps into Bollywood. Since Prithviraj Kapoor first appeared on the big screen in 1929, twenty-four members of the Kapoor family have performed in Bollywood films. As a result, the Kapoor family has been making history since 1999.
Kaho Naa… Pyaar Hai– The most number of awards for a movie
The superhit blockbuster and Hritik Roshan’s debut film received a total of 92 awards. It was listed in the Guinness Book of World Records in 2002 as the film with the most awards.

Love and God (Kais Aur Laila)- Longest production of a Bollywood film
The production of this picture took an unusually long time. Due to a variety of factors, it took more than 20 years to finish Love and God. The death of Guru Dutt and then-director K. Asif in 1971 caused significant delays. In 1986, Sanjeev Kapoor was cast in the starring role, and the film was eventually finished. It set a new world record for the longest Bollywood film production.
