Pakistan’s 23-year-old Zia Rashid who hails from Multan in Pakistan’s Punjab region measures a massive eight feet in height is finding it difficult to find a bride. His height has now become an obstacle in finding a match for him.
He is just three inches short of surpassing the world record for the tallest man. Turkish farmer, Sultan Kösen, who stands at 8 feet 2.82 inches tall is the current title-holder
Rashid stated that “I’ve not been able to find my life partner so far. I’ve not found someone who is tall enough for me. It is almost impossible. Also, my family has struggled to find a match for me. They took my marriage proposal to several families but no one showed interest in me, personally, i have stopped thinking about it.”
Rashid revealed that”At the age of 10, suddenly my height started increasing. My whole body became weak. Doctors said the weakness was due to calcium deficiency and advised me to eat calcium-rich food. But within a year, I became the tallest person in our family.”
He further added that “Despite all the odds, I feel proud of my height. I feel proud that I’m different from others. It gives me a lot of happiness that because of my height people come and take selfies with me. I get a lot of love and attention from people and that makes me feel proud.”
