Dangi, 21 and a half inches, met the world’s tallest living man, Sultan Kosen, 8 feet, 9 inches, for the first time in London in November 2014 to celebrate Guinness World Records Day.

“Even though he is short and I am tall, we have had similar struggles throughout our lives and when I look into Chandra’s eyes, I can see he’s a good man,” Kosen told the Daily Telegraph in 2014.
