Indian Comedy Star Officially Recognized as Smallest Actor in the World


Ajay Kumar is a comedy actor in India who was included in the Guinness Book of Records as the smallest actor in the world.

The Indian actor is only 2 feet 6 inches tall. He was noticed by specialists from the Guinness Book of Records only after he managed to star in 50 movies in 13 years.

"There's no point complaining about being a dwarf. I am small in size but I have got the talent and can work like a normal man," said Ajay.

The actor is mostly known by his stage name Unda Pakru. It is worth mentioning that the actor managed to become a household name in Kerala, a state located in southwestern India, where Ajay was born.

Being famous and earning a small fortune with his talented acting, Ajay is now being seen by a lot of families as a good husband.

In 2005 he married his wife Gayatri who is about twice the height of the actor. Their marriage was broadcast on local television throughout the southwestern states of the country.

"We had a traditional arranged marriage. My mother was looking for a match for me when our neighbor said she had a relative with an educated and beautiful daughter. My mother arranged the meeting and I liked her, so we got engaged," said Ajay.

The couple's 5-month-old daughter has a normal size, just like her mother, and Ajay is very happy about it. "There are hundreds of dwarves like me but they don't all succeed. It's about mind, not just the body," outlined the actor.
