This is the first time that a star has encountered such an enormous fan following for an online chat. Recently Hrithik Roshan managed to get a good number of around 27,000 plus online fans for a chat while promoting Kites. But Abhishek has surpassed them all.
The very fact that the actor is being followed by hoards of fans on the streets wherever he is promoting his movie also proves that Abhishek is finally a star on his own right today.
Abhishek"s role as the mysterious Raavan in Mani Ratnam"s movie has been creating a lot of buzz. This will be the third time that Abhishek gets so much fan appreciation for his Mani Ratnam movie. The first being Yuva followed by Guru.
Abhishek Bachchan, is perhaps the only star in the Indian film industry, creating unique historical records with his film"s promotions. Last year, his whirlwind promotional tour for his film Delhi 6 across seven cities, was a world record for public appearances by a film star at different cities in 12 hours. The Junior Bachchan has now achieved yet another exceptional feat. For his upcoming film Raavan"s promotions, he created history by chatting with over 50,000 fans online at the office of Zapak. Tremendous excitement by his fans, eventually lead to a system crash. However, it was restored immediately.
