When it is about fetching fame from establishing world records, people do all sorts of daring things. One of these record-making humans is Dinesh Upadhyaya, a man from Mumbai who held 22 lit candles in his mouth to set a Guinness World Record.
The official page of Guinness World Records has uploaded a video of Upadhyaya holding 22 lit candles in his mouth all at once, and the sight is literally mind-blowing. In an interview to Guinness World Records, he said that he practiced a lot of yoga and massaged his mouth every day so that he could stuff a lot of a material in it. In fact, Upadhyaya wants to break all possible records of mouth stuffing.
The video of his attempt crossed 5 lakh views in less than 48 hours of being uploaded on the official Facebook page of Guinness World Records. Have a look at the video in Facebook post below, but please, DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME.
Upadhyaya is a teacher by profession, and a multi-talented man otherwise. According to his Twitter bio, he holds more than 89 Guinness World Records, 3 Ripley’s world records, more than 57 Limca records and many other international records to his credit. These include Guinness World Records for holding maximum (10) billiards balls in his hand and eating maximum grapes (73) in one minute.
Guinness World Records recognized his attempt to hold maximum billiards balls in one hand in August this year.
