Since the last few days, a video of a Bollywood actress has been going viral where she is seen stepping out of a medical shop in Mumbai with a bottle. Netizens started commenting that the actress is Deepika Padukone and that she was buying alcohol during the ongoing lockdown.
The clip was doing the rounds with the caption, "Deepika Padukone buying liquor in Mumbai..... Best example in social distancing..... No servants.........No drivers."
Later, the video was shared on Bollywood photographer Viral Bhayani's Instagram account, captioned Rakul Preet Singh walking out of a medical and provision store in Bandra's Pali Hill, Mumbai.
Viral Bhayani's caption said, "Rakul was out to buy essentials, when we shot the video. It was shot near the provision and medical store at Pali Market from which she stepped out."
Later Rakul started receiving comments like, "What was @Rakulpreet buying during the #lockdown? She was buying alchohol?” read a tweet by @KRKBoxOffice. The video showed Rakul in a T-shirt, dark pants and orange sneakers. She also has a mask on her mouth and is seen carrying a few items in her hands, rushing to her car. Rakul replied, “Oh wow ! I wasn’t aware that medical stores were selling alcohol.”
Rakul’s fans asked her to ignore the haters. “Why bother answering detractors @Rakulpreet. This is invasion of your privacy by making a video and putting it online. Ignore it and move on,” wrote one. Others also quite rightly pointed out that there was nothing wrong even if she was buying alcohol. “Then What : if she’s buying alcohol I too ? Why typecast the things ! She’s too normal human beings with her right to choose , what to eat or drink,” read a tweet.
n the work front, Rakul will soon be seen in a cross-border romantic-comedy with actor Arjun Kapoor.
The film is directed by debutant Kaashvie Nair and produced by Bhushan Kumar, Nikkhil Advani and John Abraham.
