Gossip spreading like wildfire went into overdrive last night after a video of Rakul Preet Singh stepping out of a medical store went viral on social media. Firstly, it was assumed that it was Deepika Padukone in the video and secondly, that she was breaking the lock down to buy alcohol.
Two days have passed since the Indian Government slightly eased back the lock down which allowed for liquor stores to open. However, due to the mass chaos that followed, the shops were told to shut again, reports Spotboye.
Singh responded to accusations that she was out buying alcohol by saying, “Oh wow! I wasn’t aware that medical stores were selling alcohol.” Other online comments revolved around people thinking it was Padukone and not Singh in the video. This led to to people saying that this is exactly what is wrong with “WhatsApp university.”

And whilst it has been confirmed that it was not Padukone in the video and not alcohol being purchased by Singh, the pair did garner online support with people asking what the problem was if this was in fact true.
Governments around the world are starting to address their lock down rulings but it remains to be seen how gradual any changes will be made.
