A few years later, in 2018, another US citizen, James Smith, broke The Rock’s record as he clicked 168 selfies in three minutes. Now, after over four years, a widely popular Indian actor, Akshay Kumar, made the record his own with 184 selfies in three minutes, leaving The Brahma Bull way behind.

The People’s Champion accomplished this record-breaking action in 2015 at the world premiere of his film, San Andreas, at London’s Odeon Leicester Square. He clicked self-portrait photographs with his fans on the red carpet. They were thrilled to be a part of an exciting record attempt and also to get a selfie with The Great One.

However, several selfies were disqualified, keeping in mind the rules and regulations. Still, the remaining ones were enough to honor him with the title. 

This record has changed hands and may do so again in the future. As for Akshay Kumar, the actor has had a unique connection with WWE and especially The Undertaker.

Akshay Kumar’s indirect connection with The Brothers of Destruction

The world of WWE is well-known to all, especially because of its fascinating storylines. One of its characters that stood in the Attitude Era was Mark Calaway’s  The Undertaker. He was so popular during the late 90s that even one Indian movie, ‘Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi’, had the character impersonated by pro wrestler Brian Lee. The movie starred none other than the $65 million worth, Akshay Kumar and saw his character wrestle Brian Lee, who was named The Undertaker.
