Man with world's longest nails gets them cut with a saw!



  • It is estimated that the nails have a combined length of 909.6 centimeters.
Shridhar Chillal, an octogenarian from India, finally got his fingernails cut -- after 66 years.

Chillal, a Guinness World Record holder, had the longest fingernails in the world, not having cut them since 1952.

The Ripley's Believe It or Not museum in Times Square hosted a "nail clipping ceremony" where the nails on Chillal's left hand were cut.

It is estimated that the nails have a combined length of 909.6 centimeters. Chillal's longest single nail is his thumbnail, measuring 197.8 centimeters. He had made it to the the Guinness Book of World Records in 2016 for having the 'Longest Fingernails on a Single Hand Ever'.

Chillal, from Pune, had requested that his cut nails be immortalised in a museum. Ripley's has flown Chillal from India to the United States to cut his nails and forever memorialise them in a Ripley's Believe It or Not! museum. Chillal's fingernail exhibit will be officially unveiled at Ripley's Believe It or Not! Times Square, according to a media advisory.
