Zomato, the popular food delivery platform, caused a stir on social media when they shared a captivating photo on their official Twitter account. The image featured a man clad in a Zomato t-shirt, reclining luxuriously on a mound of Rs 2,000 notes.
Accompanying the eye-catching visual was a caption revealing an interesting statistic: an astonishing 72% of their cash on delivery orders had been paid using ₹2000 notes since Friday. This attention-grabbing post sparked a conversation and garnered significant attention from Zomato’s followers.
The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) made an important declaration regarding the withdrawal of Rs 2000 denomination notes from circulation. Nevertheless, it is crucial to understand that these notes will retain their validity as legal tender. The RBI has set a specific deadline, which is the 30th of September, for individuals to avail the opportunity to exchange their existing Rs 2,000 notes.
The picture is originally a scene from the American crime drama series Breaking Bad. It has become a popular meme template that has been shared over the years. A comparison between the viral picture and a keyframe of the video shows that the image has been edited to add Zomato’s t-shirt and Rs 2,000 notes. The Quint reached out to a Zomato spokesperson who confirmed that the post was shared as a joke.
