Nivetha Pethuraj Finds Cockroach In Food, Swiggy Off-Boards Chennai Restaurant!

Oh No!

Recently, Nivetha Pethuraj took to her social media to show the world that she had received a dish she had ordered with a cockroach in it. She had ordered it from Moonlight takeaway and had used the Swiggy app for delivery. She took to her Instagram story and wrote, “ I have no idea what standards Swiggy India and the restaurants nowadays are maintaining. I found cockroaches twice lately in my food. It’s very vital to inspect these restaurants on a regular basis and fine them heavily if not upto standards” She also shared a picture of the cockroach in the box of food that was delivered to her. 

The actor then went on to share messages from other people as well who have had a similar experience. “And from the messages I’m receiving, this is apparently not the first time the restaurant added a cockroach to their food. How can the restaurant be so reckless? Requesting Swiggy India to remove this restaurant from the app.” 

A few hours later, she tweeted a message from Swiggy India saying that the restaurant was off their app and henceforth restaurants would only be added after quality audits. The response said, “Firstly and as discussed on the call, the outlet has been off-boarded from our platform with immediate effect. Secondly, we have arranged for a private audit check to be carried out on the outlet.”

After this happened, she again took to her Instagram to thank people for sharing their experiences. She said it was only because of the joint effort, action was taken. She also said, “I’m really sorry some of your voices weren’t heard before with regard to the same.”

Nivetha Pethuraj was last seen in Sangathamizhan in Tamil and Red in Telugu. She is now working on a number of projects including ‘Virata Parvam’, ‘Paagal’, etc.
