The combined length of Chillal's fingernails is 909.6cm and one of his thumbnails alone is two meters long.

Chillal said, "I have paid a price for my terrifying talons. My nails were nothing but trouble in my younger years. My passion of growing nails started when I was beaten up by a teacher in school for breaking one of my nails and was told that I would never understand the kind of care required not to break them. My family members opposed but I decided from that point on that I would never cut my nails again. This was the biggest goal in my life."

Chillal has offered to dedicate his nails to a museum.
