Actor Rahul Bose recently got a taste of unreasonable pricing at a high-end luxury hotel in Chandigarh. Bizarrely, Bose was charged Rs. 442 for two bananas and was left baffled. After the incident, the actor shared the video on Twitter complaining about the exorbitant bill.
In the video, he can be heard saying that he placed the order to two bananas while working out at the gym, and received them while returning back to the room but was completely shocked after seeing the total amount charged by the luxury hotel. The bananas were grandly listed as 'Fruit Platter' in the bill.
Bose ended the video by saying that the bananas are 'too good for him'. Sharing the video on social media platforms, he wrote, "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”

Meanwhile, it is not just the actor but the internet too is completely shocked by the high-price charged for the bananas. Many netizens took to the comment section of Bose's post in order to express their distress. While one netizen thought that it was wrong of them to charge GST on fresh fruit, another one remarked saying that it feels like 'daylight robbery'. Read some of the reactions below:
That seems like daylight robbery. What did the hotel say about it? You must have spoken to them before you tweeted this.— Seekingandspeaking (@manishapaula) July 23, 2019

Might be these bananas are last in the city.— Ajay Shah (@ajayshah80) July 23, 2019
You could get 177 bananas for that price if you go out and buy from a market!— Arnab De (@ArnabDe18052003) July 23, 2019
