Man with the world's longest fingernails gets them cut

Longest nails 1

No word on how Chillal is adapting to the lighter load on his left hand, but life just became easier for him in many ways.

They were only fingernails, but to Shridhar Chillal, cutting them off probably felt a bit like cutting off his own hand. It is estimated that the nails have a combined length of 909.6 centimetres. He was flown from Pune to NY for this ceremony by Ripley's Believe It or Not museum - where his nails will be immortalized.

To that end, you may or may not be aware of Shridhar Chillal - the man with the longest fingernails in the world. Chillal, also a Guinness World Record holder, has not cut the fingernails on his left hand since 1952 and has the longest fingernails in the world. The Guinness World Record holder is now finally said goodbye to his nails in an emotional farewell.

Chillal's longest nail alone measured 197.8 cm.

But the 27-year-old burst onto center stage in knockout matches as Martinez pushed him into a more attacking position. We're playing them on Sunday'".

Well, Shridhar. I hope you absolutely make the most of the rest of your life, no longer inhibited by your horrific nail situation.

Before Williams, Christine Walton held the title from 2011 with nails measured at 19 feet and nine inches until she cut them off. The Guardian says the teacher told Chillal that he wouldn't understand what it meant to protect a nail unless he grew them himself. "While he may have cut his fingernails, his nails will be forever memorialized inside Ripley's Believe It or Not!".

I think we can all basically agree there is no better part of any given Guinness World Records book than the section about people with extreme body stuff going on.

Despite Mr Chillal's fingernails causing him to lose function in his left hand due to their weight and length, and his fingers being permanently fused together, he went on work as a photographer for a government agricultural magazine for 22 years. Odditorium in Times Square.
