Aryan Khan's arrest is opening a lot of new angles in the drug fiasco as it is expected to bring many A-listers of Bollywood into the limelight. For the unversed, it was on the night of October 2, 2021, when Aryan was arrested by the NCB (Narcotics Control Bureau) officials after they had raided a party on a Goa-bound cruise ship. It was alleged that Aryan was booked for the consumption of drugs.
After the NCB had scanned Aryan's WhatsApp chat and had submitted it to the special court, the officials had sent a summon to Aryan's friend and actress, Ananya Panday. It is reported that Aryan was discussing about drugs with a Bollywood actress during the Mumbai cruise party. After Ananya had reached the NCB office, the actress was grilled for nearly 3 hours.
