World’s longest fingernails finally cut after 66 years

He stopped cutting his left-hand fingernails in 1952, after a teacher scolded him for roughhousing with a friend and accidentally breaking off the teacher's fingernail. He had chose to grow his nails when he was scolded by his school teacher as a result of accidentally breaking the teacher's long nail. Well, this is Shridhar Chillal - and he has been growing the fingernails on his left hand for a massive 66 YEARS.

The clipped nails will now be on display at the Ripley's Believe it or Not! museum.

Shridhar Chillal, an octogenarian from India with the world's longest fingernails measuring over 9 metres, is all set to finally cut his coiled appendages after 66 years at a ceremony in NY.

Shridhar Chillal, the 66-year-old Indian man with nails as long as a London bus, has finally had them chopped off.

It's not an easy business growing the world's longest nails.

"Ripley's is privileged to display this truly unique and one-of-a-kind exhibit. Mr. Chillal dedicated his life to something truly remarkable and Ripley's is the ideal home to honor his legacy", said Suzanne Smagala-Potts, a Ripley's representative. The teacher said Chillal would never understand the attention to detail and level of care required to take care of long fingernails.

The weight of the long nails left Mr Chillal's hand in a permanently fixed position, unable to separate his fingers.
