Abhishek Bachchan has been unable to impress with his acting skills during his 16-year-long career in Bollywood, however, it seems the actor has another talent.

Unlike his father and wife, Junior Bachchan has not bagged many awards but he has been able to make it to the Guinness Book of World Records. Surprised?

Abhishek is the current Guinness World record holder for the ‘greatest number of public appearances made by a star in 12 hours’.

A still from the film.

In 2009, while promoting his film Delhi 6, Abhishek made appearances at 7 different venues in 12 hours. The actor traveled some 1,800 km by car and private jet to several cities, including Ghaziabad, Noida, Faridabad, Delhi, Gurgaon, Chandigarh and Mumbai.

The record was previously held by Will Smith who appeared three times in two hours to promote his film I, Robot in 2004.

    At 50 , he is a big flop. He could have put his education ( in costly swiss schools ) to better use . Recommend

    I BELIEVE THAT HE IS S VERY IMPRESSIVE ACTOR
    He has an understated intensity that it takes a discerning eye to notice.
    Remember this is the guy who impressed in movies like Yuva, Guru, Sarkaar and many more. In my opinion he’s a brilliant actor.Recommend
