If we talk about the most liked subject on the colorful screen of the film world, then everyone's answer is a film that is liked by the family class audience. Actually, not one or two but four or more viewers reach the theater together to watch the favorite films of the family class. Being a favorite film of the family class, even today the record of the most watched film by the audience is in the name of the film Hum Aapke Hain Kaun released three decades ago. But very few people would know that like the film screen, the film world is also ruled by families. Let's talk about some prominent families that rule the Hindi film industry.

Prithviraj Kapoor Family

If we talk about the oldest and most influential family in the Hindi film industry, then undoubtedly the name of the Kapoor family comes first. This family, which has been garnering praise from the audience for its excellent acting on the cinema screen for almost a century, is soon going to enter its 100th year in the film world with its fifth generation. The first person from this family to step into the world of films was the great actor Prithviraj Kapoor, who started his acting career in the year 1929 with a film called Bedhari Talwar. Born in Pakistan, Prithvi came to India after independence. He also started the famous Prithvi Theater in Mumbai, which is still a well-known name in the world of theater. Carrying forward the legacy of their father, his three sons Raj Kapoor, Shammi Kapoor and Shashi Kapoor also achieved a position in the world of films. Especially Raj Kapoor's fans are still present not only in India but also in many countries including Russia. The third generation of the Kapoor family also adopted the profession of acting, making their ancestors proud. Especially Raj Kapoor's son Rishi Kapoor ruled the film screen for a long time due to his romantic chocolate boy image. His elder brother Randhir Kapoor also left his mark in many films. Till the third generation, the Kapoor family did not allow the girls of their family to step into the world of cinema, but in the fourth generation, Randhir Kapoor's daughters Karisma and Kareena Kapoor not only stepped into the film world, but also earned fame on the basis of their work. On the lines of his late father Rishi Kapoor, the fourth generation actor of the Kapoor family, Ranbir Kapoor, is also one of the top box office actors in the current era. His wife Alia Bhatt is also one of the top actresses of Bollywood. Kareena is married to well-known actor Saif Ali Khan. In this way, Saif is also now a part of the prestigious Kapoor family. However, the fifth generation of the family has also stepped into the world of glamour. Yes, megastar Amitabh Bachchan's grandson Agastya Nanda and Shweta Nanda are the grandchildren of Ranbir Kapoor's aunt Ritu Nanda. Big B's daughter Shweta is married to Ritu Nanda's son Nikhil Nanda. Agastya, who appeared in the film 'Archies', is associated with many other projects.
