Amid all this, netizens have dug out an old video of Shweta Bachchan. In the video, netizens claim Shweta Bachchan appears to be under the influence of alcohol. Zoya Akhtar and many celebs are seen in the video. Shweta Bachchan is seen trying to hide her face as she exits the venue and is supported by Zoya and one more person.
