After breaking cinema BO records, last year's biggest blockbuster Kaho Naa... Pyaar Hai is set to enter the Guinness Book of World Records.
Not for raking in the moolah nor for the successful launch of Hrithik Roshan... but for winning a record number of awards.
At last count, the Roshan clan -- Rakesh Roshan, his son Hrithik Roshan, brother music director Rajesh Roshan -- and a host of other technicians associated with the film have so far garnered 92 awards.
"Yes, we have approached the Guinness Book of Records," says Rakesh Roshan.
James Cameron's biggest grosser Titanic finds a mention in it for winning 11 Academy Awards, he adds.
Rakesh Roshan's office in Santa Cruz, Bombay, is busy gathering letters from all the organisations that have conferred awards to the film.
"This is to authenticate our claim as they insist on letters from the organisations," Roshan said.
The film has bagged all the major popular awards, including Filmfare, Screen, Zee and the latest being the International Indian Film Awards (IIFA) held in Sun City, South Africa, on June 15.
All awards are very dear to the film-maker. His biggest reward? "My son, Hrithik!"
Roshan will soon start shooting for his next venture, Koi Mil Gaya, starring Hrithik and Preity Zinta in October.
