But why did Shridhar grow them so long in the first place?

But he chose to cut away an important part of his life earlier this week when he flew to NY to have the nails removed by a doctor. "Mr Chillal dedicated his life to something truly remarkable and Ripley's is the flawless home to honour his legacy", said Suzanne Smagala-Potts, PR Manager, Ripley's Believe It or Not!

Shridhar Chillal, an octogenarian from India, finally got his fingernails cut - after 66 years.

The owner of the longest fingernails ever recorded on a single hand has had them cut after 66 years.

The 82-year-old had been growing his nails since 1952, when he was 14, after being told off by a teacher for accidentally breaking his long nail.

The holder of the Guinness world record for the longest fingernails has finally made a decision 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 tried to cut the nails himself with a clipper, despite the fact that his thumbnail looked like a legit tree branch, and unsurprisingly had little success.

"I took it as a challenge", said Mr Chillal, and there was no looking back.

"Ripley's is privileged to display this truly unique and one-of-a-kind exhibit".

Because the nails were very heavy and he carried them around with him for so long, he now has permanent problems with his left hand - even though the nails are gone. A nail technician performed the surgery armed with power tools at a ceremony in the Times Square Ripley's museum on Wednesday.

Mr Chillal's unusual choice didn't stop him from leading a normal life with his wife, two children and grandchildren. Museum in Times Square. However, as he aged, his long nails were proving more challenging to maintain an ordinary lifestyle.
