Priyanka Chopra's cousin Meera finds worms in 5-star hotel food
If you are staying at a five-star hotel, the least you could expect is to have your most basic demands met: clean rooms, safety, an attentive staff, a safe meal, etc. However, during her recent stay at the DoubleTree Hotel by Hilton in Ahmedabad, Bollywood actor and Priyanka Chopra's cousin Meera was shocked to find worms wriggling in her food. Here are more details.
On Friday, Chopra tweeted a video of the meal she was served at DoubleTree, which had worms inside it. "We are paying a bomb to stay at these places and they serve us worms in my food," she wrote. She also accused the staff of being "untrained" saying, "You'll be lucky if they will deliver the right order."
Chopra said in the video, "I've been staying here for the past one week and since the time I've checked in, I've been falling sick, and now I see the reason. For the first time, I could see worms in my food." In another tweet, she wrote, "I wonder why do they charge so much when they can't even provide basics."

Notably, Chopra tagged Food Safety & Standards Authority of India (FSSAI), Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan, the Food Processing Ministry, and Cabinet Minister of Food Processing Harsimrat Kaur Badal. FSSAI said they've raised the matter with the Regulatory Compliance Division and sought time for resolution.
The concern has been raised with our Regulatory Compliance Division. Please allow us some time.— FSSAI (@fssaiindia) August 24, 2019
Since Chopra's Friday tweet, others shared their complaints of poor service experience at Hilton Hotels. One user, who stayed at the Hilton in Jaipur, shared a video of worms in his tea kettle. The user also shared a copy of the hotel management's response, wherein Hilton simply apologized. Chopra, who also claimed that the hotel staff just apologized and did nothing, retweeted the tweet.
After seeing this i strongly feel that the license of @HiltonHotels should be officially revoked! They have #maggots everywhere. This is a serious health concern and just an apology would not be sufficient. @fssaiindia @drharshvardhan @MOFPI_GOI @HarsimratBadal_ @MoHFW_INDIA https://t.co/kX5jElxThi— meera chopra (@MeerraChopra) August 26, 2019
The incident comes a month after actor Rahul Bose shared his own bad experience while staying at the JW Marriott in Chandigarh. The actor shared a video claiming that he had ordered two bananas from room service and was charged Rs. 442.50, including Rs. 67.50 GST, for it. The two bananas were listed as a "fruit platter" on the bill.
Meanwhile, Chopra made her Bollywood debut in the 2014 horror comedy film Gang Of Ghosts. She will next be seen in the courtroom drama Section 375, starring Richa Chadha and Akshaye Khanna. She is the cousin of actors Priyanka Chopra, Parineeti Chopra, and Mannara Chopra.
