Just a month after Bollywood actor Rahul Bose tweeted about the JW Mariott Hotel in Chandigarh charging him Rs 442 for two bananas, a similar post of sorts has now gone viral on social media where a customer of the Four Seasons Hotel in Mumbai was charged Rs 1700 for two boiled eggs. The bill also shows the rate of some other items, including omelet, which has been charged Rs 850, and diet coke, which costs Rs 260.

Don’t be so ignorant. The chef who boiled your egg came from France, and it’s cooked in spring water using Himalayan pink salt.

However, this is not the first hotel who has come under the fire for overcharging its customers. Previously, 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 after which he was left baffled. After the incident, the actor shared the video on Twitter complaining about the exorbitant bill. However, after the post went viral, the Excise team has launched a probe at the hotel as GST cannot be availed on fresh fruits and vegetables and fined them for Rs 25,000.
