Mumbai, Feb 24: In a bid to promote his movie Delhi 6 and to get the audience response, Abhishek Bachchan made a whirlwind tour of 7 cities in just 12 hours.
The security staff at the multiplexes were kept on their toes as Abhishek attempted to break the Guinness record of maximum public appearance in 12 hours with his seven-city promotional tour through Ghaziabad, Noida, Delhi, Gurgaon, Faridabad, Chandigarh and Mumbai.
Abhishek visited the EDM Mall in Ghaziabad, Spice at Noida, Crown Plaza in Faridabad, Select Citywalk, Ambience Mall and Central Mall in Chandigarh and Shoppers' Stop in Juhu in Mumbai.
Setting out, Abhishek said he was excited to see the response to ‘Delhi 6’.
"It is really exciting to get first hand response about your movie. The cinema halls were running packed wherever I went," the junior Bachchan told reporters. "I will make the (Guinness Book) record, god willing," the 34-year-old actor said.
At precisely 7.35 pm on Sunday in Chandigarh at the PVR Theatre Central Mall, Tribune Chowk in Sector 29, Abhishek broke the existing Guinness record of German actors Jorgen Vogel and Daniel Brohl in the category of the greatest number of public appearances by a film star at different cities in 12 hours.
Though a bit exhausted, Abhishek said he was feeling “on top of the world” for having broken the record.
