Two months later, the Guinness Book of World Records informed me via email that my application had been accepted.”
Monirul added that they asked me to send a video of the record, as per that, I sent the video. On September 21, the Guinness Book of World Records said in an email that my record had been successful. “I am now a world record holder in this category. They said the certificate will be sent in a few months,” he said.
