Michael Jackson’s ‘This Is It’ held the Guinness World Record for being the largest poster in the world. Akshay Kumar’s upcoming film Boss breaks the record. 

The actor's fan club, Team Akshay, put together logistics into place and work made the special poster of Boss aiming to make it the largest poster in the world. The poster was completed in four months.

The largest poster in the world was unveiled at Little Gransden Airfield, Little Gransden, UK, on October 03, 2013. Macro Arts (UK) did the manufacturing of the poster. Incidentally, Macro Arts is the same company that made Michael Jackson’s poster.
