Popular television actor Muneeb Butt has criticized leading hotel in Karachi for selling face masks at a high price.
In a video which is going viral on social media platforms, the actor said that he had forgotten his mask in his car and upon entry he was asked to purchase a mask.
"We came here to shoot and I had forgotten my mask in my car," he explained.
"The security guard asked me to pay Rs30 for a mask which is sold for Rs10 in the market."
It was not the money that was the issue at hand but rather the fact that the hotel was profiting amid the raging Covid-19 pandemic.
Referring to his recent trip to Turkey, with his wife Aiman Khan, the actor said that the couple was given masks for free wherever they went.
"This is a big hotel. At the very least they should give the masks for free in order to encourage others to wear it but rather they are selling it at an overpriced rate. This is the difference between Pakistan and other countries," he said.
