“what do you pay for only two bananas?” : Actor Rahul bose exclaimed
Actor Rahul Bose, known for films such as Chameli and Mr. and Mrs. Iyer and for recently directing the drama, Poorna, was in Chandigarh shooting for his next film.The actor was lodged up in JW Marriott and ordered two bananas after a workout session at the hotel’s gym. A perfect normal thing to have but what amazed everyone was not at all normal .
As, the actor was prepared for the bill : maybe 60-70 or maximum 100 but the total was 442. The hotel had charged him Rs. 442 for the two bananas.
While it’s not particularly unusual for five-star properties to charge exorbitant amounts for food and beverages, 442 for two bananas is objectively obscene, even by Marriott standards.Bose took to Twitter to make a sarcastic dig at Marriott and Twitter just rolled with it.
The actor shared his surprise on social media, writing, “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.”
Twitter soon erupted in righteous middle-class fury and some jokes. While some said the bill was “just bananas”, others called out the hotel for “cheating their customers”. Many advised the actor to complain to the hotel and sort it out with the hotel.
