NEW DELHI: Actor Akshay Kumar’s film has created another record even before its release - it has entered the Guinness of World Records for the largest film poster in the world, a record so far held by Michael Jackson’s This Is It.
Akshay’s fan club, which calls itself Team Akshay, decided to swing into action. Logistics were put into place and work had begun to make a special poster of Boss that would be the largest poster in the world which was completed in four months.
The largest poster in the world was achieved and unveiled at Little Gransden Airfield, Little Gransden, UK, on 3 October. Macro Arts (UK) did the manufacturing of the poster. Incidentally, Macro Arts is the same company that had made Michael Jackson’s poster.
The world’s largest poster of Boss is 58.87 metres wide and 54.94 metres high. When the Guinness officials came to measure it, it was recorded that the Indian Boss film poster had beaten Michael Jackson’s record by a 15 to 20 per cent margin.
The official certification for the same was done in the UK itself and the Boss poster also finds a mention on the official Guinness website.
Actor Akshay Kumar said, "It's a matter of honour. I thank everyone who made this possible."
