The Indian film industry is one of the largest film industries in the world. We, Indians are obsessed with movies. We eat, sleep and repeat movies. And we should be really proud of it. The Indian film industry holds so many captivating stories. Many of you might not know this, but apart from the many achievements our films and celebrities have under their name, there are many who also hold Guinness World Records. Wait, till you find out the reasons:
In 1999, the Kapoors or as we call them the first family of the Hindi film industry, entered the Guinness Book of World Records for having the maximum number of family members who were working in films. Since Prithviraj Kapoor, more than 24 members of the family have worked in movies so far. The world record also considered the relatives through marriage, including Amitabh Bachchan, Ramesh Sippy, Manmohan Desai and Felicity Kendall. Now, even Saif is related to this family for he is married to Kareena Kapoor.
SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali: The Beginning surely made some massive box office records, but there was one other record that it earned, all thanks to a massive film poster, which was made as a part of the promotions. It was more than 50, 000 sq. ft long and was made by the Global United Media Company Pvt Lt in Kochi on June 27, 2015.
The legendary singer made a record when she recorded more than 11000 solo, duet, and chorus-backed songs in over 20 Indian languages. Insane, right?
