That’s one ‘eggxorbitant meal’: Shekhar Ravjianii orders three egg whites, billed Rs 1,672

AHMEDABAD: 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

The cost of the humble bananas, presented as a “fruit platter”, left a certain section of the hotel industry stunned as well.
