Shridhar Chillal, 82, of Pune, visited Ripley's Believe it or Not! in New York's Times Square, where he finally cut the nails on his left hand for the first time since he was 14.

It is estimated that the nails have a combined length of 909.6 centimeters.

Shridhar's nails will now be displayed at Ripley's Believe It or Not! in Times Square.

They were cut by power tools at a ceremony in NY on Wednesday.

While Chillal holds the world record for longest fingernails on one hand, the current record for longest nails on both hands goes to Ayanna Williams of Houston, Texas, reported HuffPost.

Finally deciding to change his life, the Guinness World Record holder (for the "longest fingernails on a single hand") flew to NY to seek aid from 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!

Since being shared yesterday, the video has collected over 1.3 lakh views and hundreds of comments. I spent 66 years of my life on my nails. "Growing your nails as a retirement plan-who knew?" "I can't move much, so every half an hour or so I wake up and move my hand to the other side of the bed", he told Guinness World Records.

Growing his fingernails to this considerable length means he's not able to use or "open his hand from a closed position or flex his fingers".

Shridhar Chillal of India displays his newly cut fingernails in front of his granddaughter Shraddha Chillal. Historically, long nails are a sign of wealth for a man in India. "I never have to wait in a queue", he told Guinness World Records. He had made a decision to grow his nails when he was scolded by his school teacher as a result of accidentally breaking the teacher's long nail.
