The twist is that he was charged in Indonesian rupiah, which translates to 0.0051 rupee in Indian currency. Sharing the picture of the bill, Kiku wrote, “My bill for 1 cappuccino and 1 tea is 78,650/- but I am not complaining as I am in Bali , Indonesia and this amount in their currency converts to Rs 400/- in Indian currency #mehengaayee.” Kiku ended up paying 35,000 rupiah for a cappuccino and 30,000 rupiah for tea, plus 13,650 rupiah service tax.

A lot of fans of the comedian, who plays several characters on Kapil Sharma’s comedy show, had a good time laughing over the matter. A fan wrote, “Sir you have disclosed hotel name and room number, now the fans of Acha and Bacha Yadav will reach your location.
Another fan took a dig at him and shared a picture of his onscreen character Bacha Yadav and wrote, “London Se Tumhara Bhai Aayega Usko Batana (Tell them your brother is coming from London).”
