Meet The Man With The World’s Longest Moustache Measuring 14 Feet Long


India’s Ram Singh Chauhan is the proud owner of the world’s longest moustache – measuring an astonishing 14 feet in length.

Chauhan, 58, who hails from the city of Jaipur in Rajasthan state, says his whiskers are his ‘most prized possession’.

He has spent an incredible 32 years cultivating the tash – which he spends two hours a day grooming.

Chauhan, whose tash has even landed him a part in James Bond movie ‘Octopussy’, said: “Growing a moustache is like taking care of a baby – you really need to nurture it.

“It has taken me a long, long time to get it to 14 feet. It’s not been an easy task.”

Chauhan started growing his moustache during his late teens.

“I haven’t used a shaving blade on my moustache, or trimmed them since 1970,” he says with a wide smile.

“The moustache is the symbol of pride and respect. In ancient India, a moustache meant everything. It is priceless. It’s a man thing.”

Chauhan, whose feat has been recognised by the Guinness Book of World Records, sports a moustache of 14 feet long.

While Chauhan is still cultivating his tash, its growth has slowed drastically in recent years – but despite a number of contenders to his title, no one has come close to the mark.

He said: “When I first started to grow my moustache, I did not intend to break any record. Moustaches have been a part of Rajasthani and Indian culture for centuries. This is an age-old tradition.

“We are Rajputs. It’s a common practice to sport a moustache in our clan. My father also sported a flowing one. Now my son has also started growing his.”
