Pihu directed by Vinod Kapri, is produced by Ronnie Screwvala and Siddharth Roy Kapur under their banners RSVP and Roy Kapur Films respectively.
Pihu is a one-of-a-kind film in every aspect as it is the only film to have just one character in it throughout, played by a 2 year old child. The producers are in talks with the Guinness Book and have begun the procedure to enter this spectacular film feat in the records.
Director Vinod Kapri said, “Honestly, I cannot believe that Pihu is being sent for the Guinness Book of World Records. This thought never came to my mind while making Pihu and capturing the innocence of the little girl. This film is really close to my heart and I am really excited to share the film with the audiences... making it to the Guinness book will be a really great achievement for me as a filmmaker in trying to push the boundaries of cinema."
The film has travelled across various film festivals and has garnered amazing reviews.
