Shekhar Ravjianii got charged Rs 1672 for 3 Eggs in a 5 Star hotel

Shekhar Ravjianii orders three egg whites, billed Rs 1,672

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. Chef Manish Mehrotra from Indian Accent, which has been awarded the Best Restaurant in India for five consecutive years and ranked 17 in The World's 50 Best, said he would have preferred to give two ripe bananas for free at his restaurant. "Buying something from the market and offering it without putting any extra effort, doesn't justify the extra charge," the chef told indianexpress.com

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

WONDER WHY these POOR People go to 5 Star Hotels like Hyatt Regency - they could have gone to street vendor - LAZY PEOPLE can't walk a little for boiled egg.

I don't think many people have sympathies with these 'celebrities', going to a 3 star or normal hotel is against their status quo and when they are charged accordingly by 5-7 star hotels, they cry foul.

I'm going to make an appeal to Education Ministry to have special courses for Celebrities. Whilst everyone always looks at a Menu Card before ordering, not just for the price, but also for the variety, recent events that have unfolded have revealed that such Celebrities are unable to read / comprehend Menu items and their corresponding prices.

As such, they end up ordering part of the dish (Eg: Two bananas instead of Fruit Platter, or, Three Egg Whites instead of Boiled Egg or Egg Fry or Masala Fry or Omelette) Fools are ordering dishes which are not a part of Standard Menu and the Restaurant is rightfully charging the advertised prices.

It is just a publicity stunt, notwithstanding the fact that such celebrities throw even more money for items that do not cost anything more than pennies. To post this on Social Media is condemn-able.

These 5-star hotels should ban/bar such Celebrities from entering them again, or taunt by providing them a Welcome Kit note stating that they should be reading all prices of the Menu items before ordering.
