This month,  officials form Guinness Book plan to meet Trupti to verify her claims.

Elated over the bumper opening of her film, Trupti, who's made an amazing on screen transformation, said: "This is the first time a woman has done a complete body make-up.

In the past, for films like Chachi 420 or Paa, the makeup was restricted to the upper body and mainly the face. But in Agadbamb I have used entire body make-up to play a fat woman."

Inspired from Eddie Murphy's film, Norbit, where he plays an overweight woman, Bhoir decided to use Indian make-up artists, for the project.

"We always turn to Hollywood for help, but ignore the immense potential in our own country. I have worked with local artists and technicians for my film.

Anil Pengrikar has worked with me on the body make-up. It took eight to nine hours to get under the body suit which weighed around 250 kg.

I acted and danced in the suit. Physically, it was the biggest challenge. We'd start make-up around 3 am and finish by 11 in the morning," she said.

Talking about the prosthetics used, Bhoir said: "I didn't want to do a shoddy job by taking a short-cut. We used liquid rubber, cement, foam and plaster of paris to cover my entire body.

The challenge was to make sure that joints like elbows and knees don't remain exposed. The suit had to cover my entire body."

Happy that the public has loved her in the role of an obese woman, Bhoir said: "My film has made Rs 45 lakhs in just the first three days of release. Even in the second week, shows are going housefull. I couldn't be more thankful."

Five British siblings are set to enter the record books as the world's oldest family - after racking up nearly 500 years between them.

The Bartletts were born to Victorian parents in the early 1900s before the common use of electric light or gas cookers.

Together they have seen off 19 Prime Ministers, five Monarchs and two World Wars.

Today Kathleen, 102, Gladys, 100, Lillian, 94, Leonard, 92, and Courtney, 86, are still around to witness the online revolution and birth of 3D television.

The quintet currently have a combined age of 474 years are now preparing to enter the record books as the world's oldest living siblings.
Their family put the achievement down to decades of hard work.

Gladys' daughter Lucille Ademante, 68, of Bristol, said: 'They are truly remarkable.

'They have all been pretty active for most of their lives but I would not say their lives have been easy.

'Our whole family is really proud of them - everyone thinks they are fantastic.'  Oldest daughter Kathleen Clark was born in 1908 - the year Herbert Asquith took office in Downing Street - and went out to work as a maid the age of 12.

She retired after years of factory work in her 70s and celebrated her 100th birthday two years ago with family at her nursing home in Weston-super-Mare, Somerset.

Orange (UK) - Most People Tagged In Online Photo set Guinness World Record

Most People Tagged In Online Photo,  Most People Tagged Guinness World Record 2011, Orange (UK) Guinness World Record 2011, Most People Tagged via Facebook, how many People Tagged In Online Photo
Orange has officially set a new world record for the most people tagged in an online photo. The snap, taken at Glastonbury 2010 during the England versus Slovenia World Cup match (at half-time), had been tagged, via Facebook, by 7053 people between 29 June and 7 September.

That figure is now up to 8332 (at the time of writing), although Guinness World Records has already confirmed its entry into its hallowed tome. There's nothing to stop you also tagging yourself on the picture though, and taking part in the fun. Those who suspect that they were there should visit www.orange.co.uk/glastonbury and join in with the tagging frenzy.

Now, it's all well and good having new-fangled tech-based world records, but where's it going to end? Most use of the word "magical" in a press conference? Biggest collection of black turtle-neck sweaters? We prefer the good old, traditional records, like longest fingernails, and most amount of weight lifted by a bloke's tallywacker, that sort of thing.

They certainly formed interesting topics of conversation round our households at Christmas back in the day.
