3. Abhishek Bachchan

That’s right, this talented actor holds a world record for making the maximum public appearances in different cities within 12 hours, during the promotions of his movie Delhi-6 in 2009. Reportedly, the actor defeated Will Smith, who had also attended three press events within two hours in 2004.
