The man with the longest fingernails finally cuts them!

Jul 13, 2018

The Guinness World Record holder for longest fingernails Shridhar Chillal has finally cut his 66 years long nails. His nails have now gone on display at the Ripley’s Believe It or Not museum in New York.

Shridhar Chillal from Pune, India stopped trimming his nails in 1952 after he was scolded by a teacher for accidentally breaking his long fingernail.

She said to him that he would never understand what it takes to take care of long fingernails so to prove his teacher wrong he dedicated his life taking care of his claws.

The 82-year-old's nails have a combined measurement of 909.6cm (358.1ins). His thumbnail, the longest of the set, measures an incredible 197.8cm (77.8ins).

The record holder’s nails have now gone on display at the Ripley’s Believe It or Not museum in New York.

The end of an era. After 66 years of growth, record-breaker Shridhar Chillal from India has cut off his enormous fingernails - which will now go on display at @ripleysbelieveitornot in Times Square, New York, USA. Shridhar's remarkable nails were first included featured in the Stop Press section of our 1979 book. They had remained uncut since 1952. Due to years of growing his nails and their weight, his left hand was permanently handicapped; he cannot open his hand from a closed position or flex his fingers. "I am in pain. With every heart beat all five fingers, my wrist, elbow and shoulder are hurting a lot and at the tip of the nail there's a burning sensation always."

It is not at all easy to grow world’s longest nails, He told that his nails were so fragile that he had to be very careful not to break them while sleeping.

Check out the video of the nail cutting ceremony below:

Recently, a technician wearing a face mask and wielding a power tool carefully removed them during a “nail clipping ceremony” in New York. Now his talons will be put on display for the public.

 “When I decided to cut my nails, it was difficult for me to make this decision, but when I realized that after cutting my nails, my nails will be at Ripley's Believe It or Not! And they're going to maintain it very nicely and for a lifetime, then I felt like I was doing the right decision and that's why I decided to cut my nails" said he.
