The man with the world's longest fingernails finally had them cut

The man with the world's longest fingernails finally had them cut

During the latest measurement, his nails had a combined length of 29 feet and 10.1 inches, about as long as a London bus.

The world's longest fingernails have been cut.

The video, which was shared by Guinness World Records, shows Chillal getting his nails getting cut using an industrial cutter instead of the regular nail clipper.

Chillal made a decision to see how long he could grow them, even though the Guinness Book of World Records didn't exist then.

Shridhar Chillal of India displays his newly cut fingernails in front of his granddaughter Shraddha Chillal. The teacher said that Chillal would never understand the importance of what he had done because Chillal had never committed to anything. Chillal's longest single nail is his thumbnail, measuring 197.8 centimeters.

Former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif sentenced to 10 years of imprisonment
The security personnel manhandled members of the press as they attempted to enter the court's premises. He further added that Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz are returning Pakistan on July 13.

After growing his fingernails for 66 YEARS, the man with the world's longest fingernails has finally had them cut - and they've gone on display in NY!

While Chillal kept the nails on his right hand trimmed, his record breaking nails on his left hand weighed heavily on his daily life. Due to years of growing his nails and the weight of the nails, his hand is permanently handicapped.

"When I chose to cut my nails, it was hard for me to make this decision, but when I realized that after cutting my nails, my nails will be at Ripley's Believe It or Not! and they're going to maintain it very nicely and for a lifetime, then I felt like I was doing the right decision and that's why I chose to cut my nails", Chillal said.

It went on to quote Chillal as saying, "I am in pain".

Mr Chillal was officially recognised in 2014 by the Guinness World Records as the person with the longest fingernails ever on a single hand. However, as he aged, his long nails were proving more challenging to maintain an ordinary lifestyle. The Guinness World Record holder is now finally said goodbye to his nails in an emotional farewell.
