“Global United Media Company Pvt Ltd (India) has made the Largest poster ever as part of the promotion for Baahubali, a massive Indian film that was released earlier this month. The film has the most expensive production in the history of Indian cinema and so it seems only appropriate that it should have an equally impressive advertisement, said an official Guinness World Records note.
“The poster covered an immense space of 4,793.65 m² (51,598.21 ft²) – a space equivalent to 18 tennis courts. The movie poster humbles the previous record-holding poster which had an area of 4,709.30 m² (50,690.28 ft²) and was achieved by AK Parti (Turkey), in Istanbul, Turkey, only a month before”, according to the Guinness World Records. They also report that a drone was used to capture images of the poster.
The idea of creating the Baahubali poster was conceived by Mr. Prem Menon, MD, Global United Media Private Limited, Kochi, who assembled a 30 member team which worked round the clock for three days to complete the poster.
The Poster which was unveiled on June 27, 2015 in Kochi, Kerala as part of the audio launch of the movie, was officially awarded the Guinness World Records Certificate on July 22, 2015.
“You don’t get to do things like these every day and a big thank you to the entire team to make this wonderful event happen. A special thanks to producers Shobu Yarlagadda, Devineni Prasad and director Rajamouli,” Global United Media managing director Prem Menon told IANS, quoting International Buisness Times.
