Akshay Kumar breaks Guinness World Records™ Title for ‘Most Self-Portrait Photographs (selfies) taken in 3 minutes’
Akshay Kumar has an immense fan following worldwide, and as an exceptional tribute to his fans across the globe, he has now gone ahead and done the unthinkable—broken a Guinness World Records title for the ‘Most self-portrait photographs (selfies) taken in three minutes”. This took place at a meet-and-greet with fans in Mumbai at Mehboob Studios.
This was part of the promotions for his upcoming movie, Selfiee, releasing tomorrow (Feburary 24). The superstar, who is known for his disruptive stunts and distinctive records, is now a Guinness World Records title-holder for this special feat with 184 selfies.
Akshay has broken the previously-held world record of 168 self-portrait photographs taken in three minutes by James Smith (USA) aboard the Carnival Dream cruise ship on January 22, 2018. Earlier to this, in 2015, Hollywood actor Dwayne Johnson held this record with 105 self-portrait photographs (selfies) in three minutes at the premiere of San Andreas in London.
Speaking on breaking this unique record, Akshay said, “I am ecstatic at breaking this unique World Record and sharing this moment with my fans! Everything that I have achieved so far and where I am at this moment of my life is due to the unconditional love and support of my fans everywhere. This was my way of paying a special tribute to them, of acknowledging how they have stood by me and my work in my entire career.”
Akshay Kumar, after a brief cameo in Mahesh Bhatt’s Aaj, made his lead debut with Saugandh in 1991, and has since acted in over 150 films, producing about 20 movies and also singing in Ajnabee and Special 26.
