You can never be bored with the Guiness Book of Records. Did you know that Russian model Svetlana Pankratova has the world’s longest (and loveliest) legs at 51.9 inches – she stands 6ft 5ins (1.98m) or that He Ping Ping is the world’s smallest man at just 21.9 inches (25cm)? That Brangelina (Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie) are considered the most powerful jodi in Hollywood? That the highest score on Guitar Hero is 899,703 points, which Chris Chilke scored for Through the Fire and Flames?
Now Abhishek Bachchan is hoping to join the elite of entries in the immortal book by visiting six cities in twelve hours to promote Delhi 6. “It’s an idea that has been with me for a while ever since I heard about some German actors who set a world record by attending five public events in twelve hours,” he says, “I want to beat their record. I’d do at least 6-7 appearances in 12 hours in six cities. It could go up to seven cities.” The cities in his target sights are Gurgaon, Delhi, Noida, Ghaziabad, Faridabad, Chandigarh, Baroda and Mumbai.
At the premiere of Delhi 6 in Delhi of course, Abhi must have been in fear of his life or worse as he was surrounded by gaggles of screaming girls demanding marriage or more. “Abhishek, I love you”, “Abhishek, marry me”, and “Abhishek, you’re the best”, were bandied about and a group of girls from Delhi University issued an ultimatum – “Abhishek, you have to pick one from us. We won’t let you go,” they declared. Luckily, Abhi was chaperoned by Aish at the event. “It’s mind blowing,” he said, “It’s amazing. I love Delhi and the turn out of the people here is fantastic.” The film also stars Sonam Kapoor.
