Deepika Padukone is making the headlines, along with Sara Ali Khan, Rakul Preet and Shraddha Kapoor, after Narcotics Control Bureau (NCM) served them summons. They were called to the NCB office in Mumbai to investigate drug usage in Bollywood, after their names cropped up during investigations related to Sushant Singh Rajput's death. The questioning of the actresses is happening on September 25, the same day as farmers all over India have gone on a nation-wide strike.

Social media is flooded with any and every update from Deepika's travel plans to videos of news channels following her car. At the same time, an old interview of hers is going viral. The reason this old clip is going viral on Twitter is that in the video she is praising Rahul Gandhi as a youth politician. So Tweeple are wondering if that's the reason why NCB is bothering her.

The clip is taken from a 2011 interview given by the actress to DD News show Ek Mulaqat, three years before BJP's Narendra Modi defeated Rahul Gandhi's campaign to be the Prime Minister. At that time, Dr Manmohan Singh was the Prime Minister of India, and Rahul Gandhi was stepping himself up to be the next eligible PM candidate.
