Other stories indicate that he lives in a one-room house in a Delhi slum and has a Guinness World Records for magic certificate.

Since he is a magician with the secret to one of the world greatest mysteries and is living in a slum it is clear that he doesn't have good management. ;-)

I was unaware that there were "World Records" for magic and that Guinness was certifying them.

Heavens to Betsy: A magician who engaged in hyperbole with the press.

Shocking.

PS: And member of the press not engaging in some simple fact checking; double shock.
