Har Prakash had all of his teeth removed in order to make more room in his mouth so that he could set the Guinness World Record for stuffing the most straws into his mouth. The 70-year-old managed to hold almost 500 straws in his mouth at once.
The attempt took place on the set of the Indian GWR TV show, " Guinness World Records : Ab india Todega," where it was filmed before a live audience on March 17, with the episode airing on April 30.
Prakash, who legally changed his name to Guinness Rishi, held 496 straws in his mouth for 10 seconds to meet GWR guidelines.
Rishi already has another Guinness World Record under his belt. On May 13, 2010, he received the title of "most flags tattooed on body" after he got tattoos of the flags of 305 countries. Rishi also has tattoos of 185 country maps.
