HYDERABAD: "Selfies aren't just a girl thing. Boys click selfies too," declares Hyderabadi Bhanu Prakash Racha, who is set to challenge NFL star Patrick Peterson's Guiness World record of 1,449 selfies in an hour. The 24-year-old is confident of clicking 1,800 selfies to make that record his own at a city mall on September 18.
It was Dwayne Johnson's feat — of clicking 105 selfies in three minutes — that inspired Bhanu to take up the selfie challenge. In May this year, Bhanu was on his way back home from work in a bus when he heard a few youngsters talking about Dwayne Johnson's world record. "It immediately struck me that it's a guy who did this. I mean people keep saying selfie is a very girly thing, but here Dwayne Johnson was doing it. And I knew I was up for it now," says Bhanu, who admittedly clicked 120 selfies in three minutes the very next with his colleagues at work place.

Selfi moron wasting his time !
Norman from Cheers
Another "selfie" moron !
Dear Bhanu, Patrick Peterson or Dwayne Johnson are not the idols you should be emulating...you are 24, go get a life - it is full of real heroes everyday...beginning with your next day grocer/milkman who wakes at 4 AM to toil, just so that he can keep his family fed and see his children educated ! And here you are 'selfie'ing your way to greatness with a gifted mobile from Paapa ! Idiot !

This is not news! It is a total waste of time.....Imagine sitting around clicking non stop photos of oneself non stop is non productive and encourages other youths to do the same.
Superman,Batman,Spiderman ,Shaktiman and Now Selfiman :-)
If his act is helping his family or the country in any way then he should be encouraged. Otherwise he should be clubbed with Rahul Gandhi and Hardik Patel as the people with the lowest IQs in our country.
These records are making youngsters to waste time instead of studying.
Modiji will win the race in selfie taking.
Is that a record? May be for wasting his time
Excellent! All the records should be on Indian's name. Challenge on every record. Keep Indian flag high. Jai hind.!

If our beloved PM can take selfies wherever he goes, why not Bhanu?
He should have done something concrete
King of Cobras
give this fool a loaded pistol and take a selfie
This selfie culture is a crazy culture. Imagine some one trying to setup a world record for clicking most selfies. Thats not all imagine someone leaving his full time job to practice. Either this guy is too perfect to land another job easily or he is too arrogant. Let's see if he can create a new records. My wishes are with him.
