Dubai’s tallest man – is a Lahori!

The Daily Times reports that Muhammad Malik Khan, a former actor and wrestler from Lahore and now a security guard at a supermarket in Dubai, may be the emirate’s tallest resident.

Khan, 41 years of age, is 7 feet and 9 inches tall. He left his home in Lahoreto fight on the professional wrestling circuit in Japan for six years. He fought as the “Raja Lion” in more than 3,000 bouts, winning two belts and a huge trophy after beating Jeet Singh, the “Indian Tiger”, according to the newspaper.

“We had to eat 30 eggs for breakfast and half a kilo of uncooked minced mutton every day. I did not enjoy it but then got used to it,” – he was quoted as saying. :-|

Can you believe it?! Uncooked! :-|

As an actor, he has worked in 25 Lollywood movies, including International Lutera and Sawaal, and even in an American film, Final Fight (also titled Blood Fight and Sportfight).

“I am the only one with abnormal height among my seven siblings. I know I do not look like normal people, but that doesn’t bother me any longer. The extra attention and interest that once annoyed me now makes me feel extraordinary.”

The purchasing manager at the supermarket Khan works at, said shoplifters usually confessed quickly when they saw Khan. :D

They couldn’t look more different – but Mohammad Malik Khan and Jack Gurung are both amazing people size-wise.

They are thought to be Dubai’s tallest and shortest people.
