Man who's been growing his fingernails since 1952 has finally cut them

He had chose to grow his nails when he was beaten up by his school teacher for breaking the teacher's long nail.

Shridhar Chillal, 82, finally got his fingernails cut after 66 years of growing them out. Image sourceAccording to estimations, the combined length of Chillal's nails was a whopping 909.6 centimeters.

But now look! He has had them cut and they have gone on display at Ripley's Believe it or Not! museum of weird and wonderful things in NY in the US.

An 82-year-old Indian man who holds the Guinness World Record for longest nails on a single hand finally clipped them in NY.

Shridhar Chillal - who began his oddball hobby as a teenager in 1952 - traveled from Pune, India to New York City to have his nails cut and displayed at the museum.

This is the moment that he finally said goodbye to his record-breaking nails.

Adjudicators noted his thumbnail measured an unbelievable 197.8cm and curled into a tight coil at the end. But why did Shridhar grow them so long in the first place?

"When I had my nails I took special care of them because they're a very delicate part of our body, I took care of them for a lifetime", he said. I spent 66 years of my life on my nails. "While he may have cut his fingernails, his nails will be forever memorialized inside Ripley's Believe It or Not!".

"I can't move much, so every half an hour or so I wake up and move my hand to the other side of the bed", he told Guinness in 2015.

Growing his fingernails to this considerable length means he's not able to use or "open his hand from a closed position or flex his fingers". The world record holder suffered several difficulties due to the extraordinarily long nails that he had grown over the years.

Before Williams, Christine Walton held the title from 2011 with nails measured at 19 feet and nine inches until she cut them off. "Times Square", Ripley's Believe It or Not!
