Recently, several reports have claimed that actor Deepika Padukone's name has come up in the NCB drug probe involving Rhea Chakraborty. Other actors whose names have also surfaced during the investigation include Sara Ali Khan, Rakul Preet Singh and Simone Khambatta - all three are expected to be summoned this week. In light of these developments, many social media users have pointed out that somehow only names of women seem to have come up.

Journalist Barkha Dutt tweeted, "No men "Do Drugs" in the movie industry? You mean they are high on just testosterone?"
