"Ripley's is privileged to display this truly unique and one-of-a-kind exhibit". He entered the Guinness Book of World Records in 2016 for having the "Longest Fingernails on a Single Hand Ever". His right hand's nails were trimmed so that he could work and do daily tasks.

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.

Shridhar's nails will now be displayed at Ripley's Believe It or Not! in Times Square. The world record holder suffered several difficulties due to the extraordinarily long nails that he had grown over the years. They were so thick that they needed to use a special cutting tool to remove them (which you would never use to cut your nails normally - so don't do this at home!).

The new Duchess of Sussex managed to steal the show in a navy dress by Christian Dior and a hat by royal milliner Stephen Jones . Prince Louis Arthur Charles of Cambridge has been christened, marking his first public event since his birth on April 23.

The nails prevented him from sleeping properly - he had to wake up regularly to check they weren't being crushed. Sure, the parts about guys doing record-breaking motorcycle jumps or whatever are okay, but what we're really here for is the people who are like 9 feet tall and those guys who can pop their eyeballs out of their head. But why did Shridhar grow them so long in the first place? He had chose to grow his nails when he was beaten up by his school teacher for breaking the teacher's long nail. The Guardian says the teacher told Chillal that he wouldn't understand what it meant to protect a nail unless he grew them himself. I took care of them for a lifetime. "Mr. Chillal dedicated his life to something truly remarkable and Ripley's is the flawless home to honor his legacy", said Suzanne Smagala-Potts, a Ripley's representative.

"But when I realised 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".
