HUFF & PUFF: Singh learnt this unique style of smoking cigarettes from his chain-smoker friends.
To make it to the Limca Book of Records and the Guinness Book of World Records, Singh practices smoking in his special way.
"I am not a habitual smoker of cigarettes. It is an art, which I came to know from one of my friends. One day while bathing I found that air bubbles were coming out of my ear. I told this to my friend and he told me to try lighting a cigarette in my ear and inhaling the puff. I lit a cigarette and found it clicked," said Singh.
"It was my friend who encouraged me and convinced me that it is an art which will earn me fame. Since then I have never looked back I know smoking is injurious to health," Singh added.
However, Dharmendra's father Amar Singh, who understands smoking is not a good idea for anyone's health but is glad that his son is trying to earn a name from a not so likeable habit.
"I know smoking is a bad habit. Everybody smokes by his or her mouth but Dharmendra smokes from his ear. It can make him famous and if he earns a name and fame, it will be good for him," said Amar Singh, Dharmendra's father.
