Man With World’s Longest Fingernails Finally Cuts It After 66 Years (Photos)

After 66 years, an eighty-year-old boy with the world's longest fingernails, which measured more than nine meters, has finally cut them. 

Shridhar Chillal is a well-known actor. 

Sridhar Chilal, an eighty-year-old man who stands over nine meters tall and has the world's longest neck, has finally had his curving limb removed in a ceremony in New York after 66 years of struggle. 

The video, which was provided by Guinness World Records, shows Chilal trimming his nails with an industrial cutter, rather than with conventional nail clippers, as is customary. 

In the video, it says, "At the age of 82, Shridhar Chillal (who holds the record for the longest nail in one hand - till now) finally clipped his nails on his left hand after 66 years of growth."

Chillal has requested that his clipped nails be preserved in a museum, and the Ripley's Believe It or Not Museum in Times Square has agreed to accommodate him. 

They traveled from Pune to New York with Chillal in order to cut his nails and preserve them in a museum for all time. Chillal's nails are clipped during a "nail cutting ritual" at the museum today, which is open to the public. 

There are around 909.6 centimeters in total length estimated for the nails (9.1 meters). Chillal's longest single claw measures only 197.8 centimeters in length, making it a small creature. 

He had made the decision to grow his nails after being assaulted by his teacher, who had attempted to break Master's long nails. 

Chilal, who is 82 years old, has not clipped the nails on his left hand since 1952, and he possesses the world's longest fingernails in his left hand. The nail-biting world record holder has finally bid his nails a tearful farewell in an emotive farewell video.
