After 66 years, Guinness World Record holder Shridhar Chillal has finally cut his nails, in a nail-clipping ceremony organized by Ripley’s Believe It or Not!
The 82 year old man from Pune currently holds the world record for the longest fingernails in the world, the collective length of which was found to be 909.6 centimeters.
The world record holder has not cut his nails since 1952, which has rendered his left hand completely handicapped. He said he decided to not cut his nails after being scolded by a school teacher for accidentally breaking her nail.
Chillal’s legacy will be honoured and immortalized in the form of an exhibit at the Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Museum after being unveiled at Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Times Square museum.
Ripley’s said it was privileged to display the unique and one-of-a-kind exhibit. “Chillal dedicated his life to something truly remarkable and Ripley’s is the perfect home to honour his legacy,” their PR manager Suzanne Smagala-Potts said in a statement.
