Suniel Shetty gets candid on the tomato price hike

Speaking with a news portal, Suniel Shetty said, 'My wife Mana only buys vegetables for one or two days we believe in eating fresh produce. The prices for tomatoes are skyrocketing these days, and this has affected our kitchen as well. I eat fewer tomatoes these days.

The Main Hoon Na actor also opened up on why he believes in buying groceries, fruits, and vegetables from one certain delivery app. He also pointed out the rise in the price of tomatoes. In today's time, Tomatoes are priced at Rs. 140/kg in Mumbai.


"If you look at the prices on these apps, you'll be shocked. They're cheaper than all the shops and markets. I order from the app, but not because it's cheaper, but because they sell fresh produce. I am also a restaurateur, and I've always bargained for the best prices. But with rising prices for tomatoes, people have had to compromise on taste and quality. I have too," said Suniel Shetty.

The prices of tomatoes in metropolitan cities are 15 times what they used to be. In May, tomatoes used to be priced at Rs. 10 per kg. The inflation in prices is alarming and worrisome, even for celebrities who live a lavish lifestyle.
