Man with world's longest fingernails grabs the clippers after 66 years

Longest nails 1

They flew Chillal from Pune to NY to cut his nails and memorialise them forever in the museum.The museum will host a "nail clipping ceremony" today where Chillal's nails will be cut.

The record holder, from Pune, India, stopped trimming his fingernails in 1952 after he was told off by a teacher for messing around with a friend and accidentally breaking the teacher's nail.

The holder of the Guinness world record for the longest fingernails has finally chose to trim his alpha-keratin opus, which grew over past 66 years to a combined length of a city bus and will now be put on display in NY. Chillal's fingernail exhibit will be officially unveiled at Ripley's Believe It or Not!

A school yard incident prompted the challenge for Shridhar Chillal to grow his nails on his left hand when he was a teenager.

"I don't know whether the teacher is dead now or not but I would definitely like to say that the thing for which you scolded me, I took it as a challenge and I have completed the challenge and now, I am here", he said. The teacher said Chillal would never understand the attention to detail and level of care required to take care of long fingernails. His right hand's nails are trimmed.

The weight of the long nails left Mr Chillal's hand in a permanently fixed position, unable to separate his fingers. "Chillal dedicated his life to something truly remarkable and Ripley's is the flawless home to honour his legacy". 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. However, as he aged, his long nails were proving more challenging to maintain an ordinary lifestyle. "Times Square", Ripley's Believe It or Not! He found it hard to sleep, and even a gust of wind was cause for alarm.
