An eighty-year-old boy with the world's longest fingernails, more than 9 meters, has finally cut them after 66 years.
Sridhar Chilal, an eighty-year-old man with the world's longest neck at over 9 meters tall, has finally cut off his curvy limb after 66 years in a ceremony in New York.
The video, which was shared by Guinness World Records, shows Chilal cutting his nails using an industrial cutter instead of ordinary nail clippers.
"At the age of 82, after growing the nails on his left hand for 66 years, Shridhar Chillal (longest nail in one hand - till now) finally cut it," the video reads.
Chillal has asked for his clipped nails to be preserved in a museum, and the Ripley's Believe It or Not Museum in Times Square says yes.
They flew from Pune to New York with Chillal to cut his nails and keep them forever in a museum. Today there is a "nail cutting ceremony" at the museum where Chillal's nails are cut.
The nails are estimated to have a total length of 909.6 centimeters (9.1 meters). Chillal's longest single claw is miniature at 197.8 centimeters.
He had decided to grow his nails when he was hit by his teacher to break Master's long nails.
The 82-year-old Chilal has not cut the nails of his left hand since 1952 and has the longest fingernails in the world. The Guinness world record holder has finally said goodbye to his nails in an emotional farewell.
