His cut fingernails are laid flat in a memorial case and span a length of over 31 feet, the height of a three-story building, according to a statement by Ripley's.

Shridhar Chillal, an octogenarian from India with the world's longest fingernails measuring over 9 metres, is all set to finally cut his coiled appendages after 66 years at a ceremony in NY. Beginning with his curling, 6.5-foot long thumb nail, the nails were removed with a mini power saw, as seen in a Guinness World Records video.

His thumbnail, the longest of the set, measures an incredible 197.8cm (77.8ins).

"I don't know whether the teacher is dead now or not but I would definitely like to say that the thing for which you scolded me, I took it as a challenge and I have completed the challenge and now, I am here", he said.

Ripley's said it was privileged to display the "unique and one-of-a-kind" exhibit.

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". Times Square museum features 20 galleries and more than 500 artefacts from around the world. Though his fragile nails complicated many everyday activities, like sleeping, Chillal has led a mostly normal life.
