After Rahul Bose in July this year, it’s Bollywood music composer Shekhar Ravjiani’s turn to pay a huge amount for small things. In a tweet posted on Thursday evening, Ravjiani attached a bill that shows Rs 1672 as the cost of three egg whites. He tweeted, “Rs. 1672 for 3 egg whites? That was an exorbitant meal!”
Shekhar is half of the popular Vishal-Shekhar duo. He started his career in music composing in 1999 with Pyaar Mein Kabhi Kabhi, and has made music for films such as Bluffmaster, Om Shanti Om, Happy New Year, Sultan and most recently War. He has also acted opposite Sonam Kapoor in Neerja. Earlier, Bose had ordered two bananas while working out at the gym of JW Marriott in Chandigarh, and had received a bill of Rs 442.5. He later put out the bill on Twitter.

In Ravjiani’s case, the price is even more shocking. A Twitter user suggested the composer to go for local ‘thela’ where he could get one egg for as less as Rs 6.

Tired of celebrity ranting about 'eggxorbitant' meals in 5 star hotels... First you are not poor and if you can afford stay in 5 star you can definitely afford their expensive items. So either stop stating at such hotels or stop ranting and giving bad publicity to these hotels! — ( ´ ▽ ` ) (@whataboutery9) November 15, 2019
