Celebrated actor and director Rahul Bose is pretty active on social media, much to the delight of his fans. A week ago, he had taken to his social media handle to share that he was staying at the 5 star hotel JW Marriott in Chandigarh and when he was in the gym, he asked for two bananas while working out. They delivered it to his room along with a bill of Rs 442.50.

Soon after, the video went viral on Twitter. Along with the clip, the actor also wrote: “You have to see this to believe it. Who said fruit wasn’t harmful to your existence? Ask the wonderful folks at @JWMarriottChd #goingbananas #howtogetfitandgobroke #potassiumforkings.” After Rahul’s complaint, Chandigarh Deputy Commissioner and Excise and Taxation Commissioner Mandip Singh Brar ordered an investigation into the matter and imposed a fine of Rs 25,000 on the said hotel, for violation of section 11 of CGST (illegal collection of tax on an exempted item).

When this news surfaced, netizens had a field day and took to their social media handles to share memes about the incident. In fact, even marketers used the ‘Rahul Bose moment’ to their advantage. Some even began using #RahulBosemoment to share their stories. One twitter user wrote: “My Rahul Bose moment when I paid 3000 Rs for hair cut” while another tweeted: “All airports and multuplexes are basically made for us to feel My Rahul Bose moments.”
