To some, a way to entertain yourself when you are bored but to Bhanu Prakash, it’s a very serious matter. The 24-year-old from has set out to break the world record for the most selfies taken in an hour. He is so dedicated that in August he quit his job as a research assistant at a hospital to train.

He says that his personal best is already 1,700 selfies an hour and his goal is to get to 1,800. He has also been doing hand and wrist exercises to prepare for the big day. Prakash says he was inspired by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s record-breaking 105 selfies in three minutes Prakash had attempted to break the world record for most selfies taken in an hour on Sept. 18. 2015 and recorded 1,800 selfies an hour and is now practicing to take selfies for 200 hours nonstop!
