Rahul Bose, a familiar face in Tamilnadu for his appearance in Kamal Haasan’s Vishwaroopam has posted a video in his official twitter account which is going viral across the Internet. The video is about nothing but a bill amount of two bananas in a luxurious hotel.
The 51 year old actor was asked to pay Rs.442 for just two bananas. On Monday, the 51-year-old actor shared a video on Twitter complaining about the bill. “You have to see this to believe it. Who said fruit wasn’t harmful to your existence?” before concluding with a hilarious hashtag- #GoingBananas

In the 38-second video, Rahul Bose praises the hotel before saying that he had asked for the fruit while working out in the gym. He then shows the bill, where he was charged Rs. 442 for a full “fruit platter”. “They’re just too good for me,” the actor remarks sarcastically before the video ends.
As soon as he uploaded the video many people started reacting and slammed the hotel for what they did. Many shared their Rahul Bose moment as well. Check out some their reactions here :
Reverse Rahul Bose moment: Was in Bengal recently. My colleague and I had tea from a road side joint. Gave him a 20. The shop owner asked for 4 Rs. I thought, Rs. 12 for tea was expensive. The shopkeeper returned the 20.

This is not something new in theatre they charge us 200₹ for popcorn which is available at 20₹ outside the mall . Every where is loot but it’s never big news . I think govt should take action against such institutions. #RahulBose

In a statement to Indian Express, Brar said, “Taking cognisance of the video and bill posted by the actor, I have ordered an investigation. I have directed Assistant Excise and Taxation Commissioner (AETC) Rajeev Chaudhary to conduct a thorough probe on how the hotel had charged GST on fresh fruits. Strict action will be taken if found guilty.”
