Chandigarh: The public relations nightmare for a five-star hotel in Chandigarh, peeled for trying to charge actor Rahul Bose Rs. 442 for two bananas, refuses to die down.

Tax authorities have fined JW Marriott Rs. 25,000 for violating regulation by collecting tax on an exempted item, news agency ANI reported on Saturday.

On Monday, Rahul Bose’s video complaint went viral on Twitter after he roasted the hotel for charging him Rs. 442 for two bananas.

“You have to see this to believe it. Who said fruit wasn’t harmful to your existence?” the 51-year-old Shaurya star said.

The incident unleashed a wave of memes and jokes on Twitter with people sharing what soon came to be known as their “Rahul Bose Moments”.

Amid the disaster online, the Excise and Taxation Department in Chandigarh also visited the hotel and seized documents related to the sale.

JW Marriott is yet to comment on the episode. Rahul Bose, who was shooting for a film in Chandigarh, left for Amritsar the following day.
