In the video, maggots can be seen walking on the plate in which the food is served. The actor has also asked FSSAI to take some immediate action against this incident. In its response, the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) said that the concern was raised with their Regulatory Compliance division and asked for some time to address the issue.
On the work front, Meera Chopra will be soon seen in Bollywood film Section 375, which also stars Richa Chaddha and Akshaye Khanna in the lead roles. The film is slated to hit the screens on September 13.
Recently, actor Rahul Bose had tweeted about getting billed Rs 442 for two bananas at a hotel. ''You have to see this to believe it. Who said fruit wasn’t harmful to your existence? Ask the wonderful folks at JW Marriott Chandigarh,'' the Chameli actor, who was shooting in Chandigarh, captioned the video, adding ''bananas are just too good for me''.
In a statement, FHRAI Vice-President Gurbaxish Singh Kohli said that the 18% GST levied by the hotel on Bose’s bill was “a legal requirement incumbent upon the hotel”.
