After the fiasco of Rahul Bose's unexpected experience of paying INR 442 for two bananas at a plush five-star hotel in Chandigarh earlier this year, a similar situation has cropped up again. This time it is Bollywood singer-composer Shekhar Ravjiani, who was at the receiving end of 'exorbitant' pricing of a five-star hotel in Ahmedabad, Gujarat.
Shekhar posted the bill on his Twitter account with the caption "Rs. 1672 for 3 egg whites??? That was an Eggxorbitant meal". With the caption, Shekhar narrated that he was exorbitantly charged Rs. 1672 for just three egg whites by the hotel on Thursday. In the bill, we can see the order of three boiled eggs at a whopping price - INR 1350. Added to that is the GST and service charge, which brought the price of the eggs to a total of INR 1672.66.

The Twitter post had more than 800 retweets and more than 3 thousand 'likes', with many people criticising the unreasonable price of mere three eggs. Twitter, obviously, had a lot to say about the bizarre situation, with some even calling it the composer's 'Rahul Bose moment'. While some sympathised with Shekhar for being charged so much, singers Papon and Harshdeep Kaur had a rather humorous take on the situation. The hotel, however, hasn't reacted to Shekhar Ravjiani's Tweet yet.
While Rahul Bose's incident led to a fine of INR 25,000 on the hotel by the Excise and Taxation Department for over-charging from the actor, we are yet to see how it will unfold with Shekhar Ravjiani.
