On Friday, country’s top singer and composer Shekhar Ravjiani took to Twitter and shared a picture of an “eggxorbiant” bill charging him $24 approx. (Rs. 1,672) for three egg whites at a fancy hotel.
An entire tray of 30 eggs usually costs around $3 (about Rs.200) in local Indian shops.

The bill quickly triggered rib-tickling reactions from netizens on Twitter, who called the food pricing at Indian five-star hotels “eggstreamly” over-the-top (OTT).

This is not the first time that a five-star hotel has stumped a Bollywood biggie with an over-priced food bill.
Earlier, in July, actor Rahul Bose tweeted about how he was charged $7 approx. (Rs. 442) for just two bananas.
The actor posted a video showing off the fancy freebies like chocolate cookies and decorative flowers, while asking his followers, “Who said fruit wasn’t harmful to your existence?”

After what happened with Ravjiani today, netizens patted him a “there, there” for his own “#RahulBoseMoment”.
