A post highlighting what a consumer claimed was an exorbitant bill, has gone viral on social media. Twitter user Kartik Dhar tweeted a photo of a bill from the Four Seasons hotel in Mumbai, where he says he was charged Rs 1700 for two boiled eggs. When questioned, the hotel refrained from commenting on the incident. “We don’t have a comment on this,” a senior official of the hotel said.
“2 eggs for Rs 1700 at the @FourSeasons Mumbai. @RahulBose1 Bhai Aandolan karein?(Should we protest)” Dhar said in the tweet, which soon went viral. Dhar tweeted a photo of the bill, in which he claimed that he was charged Rs 6,938 for an order that included 4 omelettes, two boiled eggs and 3 aerated beverages.
However, the post triggered mixed reactions online, with some questioning the authenticity of the bill due to its content and the format.
“I don’t understand this order. Who eats like this??” said one of the many comments on the viral post. However, many also criticised the hotel for the pricing of items.
