The price of luxury is a heavy one and Rahul Bose learnt it the hard way.
The actor is currently shooting in Chandigarh and is staying at a property of a high-end hotel chain. While working out at the gym, he ordered 2 bananas and the bill he got is absurd.
Rahul Bose got charged Rs 442 for 2 bananas, GST included.
He turned to Twitter where he posted a video sharing his experience with 'luxury', questioning the idea behind charging such exorbitant prices for something that is really quite cheap - all because you are staying at a fancy hotel.
You have to see this to believe it. Who said fruit wasn’t harmful to your existence? Ask the wonderful folks at @JWMarriottChd #goingbananas #howtogetfitandgobroke #potassiumforkings pic.twitter.com/SNJvecHvZB— Rahul Bose (@RahulBose1) July 22, 2019
In the video, he shows off his beautiful suite and all the 'elegant' freebies hotels offer, but when it came to the fruit platter (read: 2 bananas), the sky-high bill shocked the actor. He jokingly remarked that these bananas were 'too good for him'.
Naturally, Twitter weighed in the situation to take a shot at high-end establishments like this hotel and their penchant for overcharging.
