    A year back, Abhishek Bachchan created a world record for the maximum number of cities visited by a film star in 12 hours straight! This feat really made him the first Indian actor to be included in the Guinness Book of World Records. In an awards ceremony held recently, the star was honoured and presented with the Guinness Record in Mumbai.Talking to a news daily, a delighted Abhishek Bachchan said, “I`m quite excited by the victory, more so because it has been done for a film that`s so close to my heart. I am delighted to receive this honour at the prestigious Apsara Awards in front of the entire film industry.

    The issues addressed by ‘Delhi 6’ are relevant and have a strong message for our countrymen. This record I`d dedicate to the people of India.”For your knowledge, it was Will Smith, who first got the Guinness World Record for his movie ‘Hitch’ for making the maximum number of public appearances by a film star at different cities in 12 hours promoting their film. Jargen Vogel and Daniel Bruhl (Germany) broke Will Smith`s record and now Abhishek Bachchan takes the layer.The touch and go act was done under strict Guinness World Record guidelines and the current record was equalled within five hours, broken in eight hours and by the time 12 hours had lapsed, Abhishek had visited 7 cities further extending the test.

    This is how it went – tour began on 22nd February, Sunday in the afternoon at 12.05 pm in Ghaziabad in the presence of world media; Abhishek started his unique tour travelling to as many events in as many cities as probable within 12 hours. Other cities covered included Noida, Faridabad, Delhi, Gurgaon, Chandigarh and Mumbai.
