After actor Rahul Bose had to pay Rs 442 for a pair of ripe bananas, it is music composer Shekhar Ravjianii who faced a similar situation during his stay at Hyatt Regency in Ahmedabad — a bill worth Rs 1,672 for ordering three egg whites. “Rs. 1672 for 3 egg whites? That was an Eggxorbitant meal”, he tweeted.

“ANDAaaz apna apna? Ye toh eggtremely shocking hai”, singer Harshdeep Kaur replied to his tweet.

In India, an egg usually costs Rs 5 or 6 if you buy it at a local mart. But if you look at the bill closely, it says that three boiled eggs cost him Rs 1,350 along with 18 per cent GST and 5 per cent service charge, which amounted for Rs 322 as tax.

Previously, in the case of Rahul Bose, we also went bananas and tried finding out the fruit’s cost — no, not at sabzi mandis, but from chefs. Bose, in a video of himself at JW Marriott in Chandigarh, wrote: “You have to see this to believe it. Who said fruit wasn’t harmful to your existence?”. He had signed off with hashtag- #GoingBananas

Cheaper or even free: That is how much two bananas could have cost Rahul Bose

More recently, actor and comedienne Mallika Dua also shared her ordeal on Instagram. In a story, she tagged Bose and wrote how she, too, was charged an insane amount for two bananas during her stay at Marriott Fairfield in Lucknow. “Wow, guess who made the mistake of ordering two bananas at the Marriott Fairfield in Lucknow. Four hundred and forty three bucks for two bananas conveniently billed and listed as “fruit platter”. You deserve to shut down, Marriott. For the s**t service and for scamming customers. How dare you?” she wrote.

The cost of the humble bananas, presented as a “fruit platter”, left a certain section of the hotel industry stunned as well. Chef Manish Mehrotra from Indian Accent, which has been awarded the Best Restaurant in India for five consecutive years and ranked 17 in The World’s 50 Best, said he would have preferred to give two ripe bananas for free at his restaurant. “Buying something from the market and offering it without putting any extra effort, doesn’t justify the extra charge,” the chef told indianexpress.com.
