Sending shock-waves across social media, Bollywood’s girl next door Parineeti Chopra, recently posted a Instagram post saying that she spent a million bucks to buy two T-Shirts.
Now before you jump to conclusions and start accusing celebrities of not valuing money and other stuff, please know that the prices or these two shirts are in Rupiah, that is the Indonesian currency.
The exchange rate for 1 Indian Rupees is 214 Indonesian Rupiah. This means that the value for these two shirts in Indian Rupees is a little under 5000.
Parineeti, was recently in Jakarta for a show and went shopping. On finding the crazy price difference, she posted the pic on her Instagram account along with the hash tags, #CrazyCurrency and #Jakarta. Soon after posting that pic, which had sent her fans in a frenzy, Parineeti sent out a tweet expressing her amusement at her fans reaction:
Haha I love how everybody got their calculators out! 1 million for shirts, 4 million for lunch,the craziness goes on!! #KaunBanegaCrorepatiAdvertisement
