Bollywood star Abhishek Bachchan is on a promotional spree for his soon-to-release film Raavan and had a whirlwind tour of the capital, visiting ten different venues.

"I lived in Vasant Vihar for a few years when I was a kid so this is like coming back home for me," Abhishek told the crowd. He was accompanied by his co-stars Ravi Kishen and Ajay Gehi who play his brothers in the film.
"I am here with my two brothers. We did the same promotional tour through Mumbai yesterday and that was a lot of fun," said Abhishek, before heading to DLF Promenade nearby.A large number of the actor's fans had gathered to see him at the various places in the capital, braving the scorching summer heat.
"My character in Raavan is a bit mad and unpredictable, his personality has different shades. One moment he might be dancing and can kill a person in the other," said Abhishek.The stars' appearance was preceded by a performance where six dancers moved to the beats of the already popular song from the film Thok De Killi.
"We play brothers in the movie. Shooting for the film was very tough in the jungles among snakes and scorpions. Delhi is a city of cinema lovers and Mani is one of the finest directors in India, so give it all your love when the movie releases on July 18," said Ravi.
"Abhishek was a great friend on the sets, he never made us feel that he is a Bachchan," he added. Other places in the capital which featured on the actor's visiting list were PVR Saket, Ansal Plaza, Khan Market, Delhi Haat and Ambience Mall. The Raavan team is headed to Hyderabad tomorrow.
