watching movies non-stop for 120 hours.
Each movie lasted around 90 minutes and
Ashish was permitted a 10 minute rest after each film. He
was checked by a doctor every four hours.
In an interview with the newspaper, Ashish said: "By
chance, I saw that someone had set a record in watching films
and I thought I would break it. More so because I love watching
Sharma, from the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh,
over 48 Hindi films over a period of five days, breaking the
previous world record of 117 hours and four minutes
set by a German woman, Claudia
Sharma is known in Mathura as memory master.
He is planning a book on improving one's memory for the youth.
The movie enthusiast said that his attempt to
enter the Book of World Records was to put the name of his
home town Mathura "on the World map."
