When Sajeesh Mukhathala walked into the midst of mediapersons on Saturday making an announcement ahead of another record breaking attempt, viewers feared for his safety.

The 32-year-old started of by inserting 4.5-inch-long steel knives into his nostrils. After inserting four knives into his left nostril, he did the unthinkable by inserting an active drilling machine’s 3.5-inch drill bit into his right nostril. Then he went on to insert two 3.5-inch drill bits into both his nostrils simultaneously.

In his next stunt, Sajeesh tucked in eight 4- inch iron nails and six 3.5 inch nails into his nostril. Leaving the nails in his nostril, he demonstrated his another skill- writing simultaneously with both hands on a black board.

Through the half-an-hour performance at the Kollam Press Club on Saturday, Sajeesh aimed at entering the Guinness Book of Records. The visuals of the performance were recorded and it would be sent to the Guinness authorities.  Speaking on similar stunts in the pipeline, Sajeesh said that he was practising hard to insert a nail into his eyes and blow up a balloon using ear.

He was however, tightlipped about his personal life and inspirations behind performing such daredevil stunts.  Son of Gopinathan Pillai and Omanayamma, of Sajeev Bhavan, Neduvilakkara, Mukhathala, he had earlier entered the Limca Book of Records for retro-running 27-km distance from Kollam to Kottarakkara in two hours and 27 minutes in 2007. The former state school athletic meet medal winner was also in the news for running 150 km in 24 hours to reach Sabarimala.  Sajeesh, an ITI diploma holder, is currently working as a freelance sculptor. He had performed various stunts during the past few years.
