Shah Rukh Khan’s son, Aryan Khan, has been hitting the headlines for quite some time now and that too for all the wrong reasons. He was arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau for the Mumbai cruise drug case on the night of October 2, 2021. Since then, his star parents are leaving no stone unturned to get him out of the custody of the NCB. However, despite various attempts, his bail has been rejected and denied multiple times and the custody was extended days after days.
It was 20 days after Aryan's arrest that his father, Shah Rukh Khan, had paid a visit to his son. On the morning of October 21, 2021, the doting father, who is away from his son for quite some time now, was spotted visiting his son, Aryan Khan, in the Arthur Road jail for the first time. SRK was previously connecting with his son through video calls. However, his first public appearance after his son's arrest had reflected it on his face that he was going through testing times.
On October 26, 2021, further hearings of Aryan Khan's bail plea were held. According to various reports, NCB had filed its response to the Bombay High Court in regard to Aryan Khan's bail plea. The anti-drug agency stated its suspicion that his bail might lead to tampering with evidence since he is influential. The report read as:
''Further, considering the influential position Aryan Khan holds in the society, he may tamper with the evidence and influence other witnesses whom he personally knows is very much possible.''
NCB's report also mentioned the name of Shah Rukh Khan's manager, Pooja Dadlani, who got in touch with one of the witnesses, Prabhakar Sail. For the uninitiated, Sail had brought in allegations of bribery against NCB Zonal Director Sameer Wankhede. The agency further added:
Affidavit clearly names one Pooja Dadlani, manager connected to this applicant (Aryan Khan). It so appears that the said lady appears to have influenced such panch witness when the investigation is ongoing, such interference at the stage of investigation is a malafide attempt to ensure that the same is derailed and the quest of truth is obstructed."
Well, it seems like Aryan's parents, Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan are quite hopeful about his bail. According to a report in Bollywood Hungama, Shah Rukh and Gauri have planned to keep their son, Aryan Khan under house arrest for two to three months once he is back home from jail. A source, who also happens to be a family friend of the Khan family disclosed to the portal that while the actor and his wife are unaware that what their son is guilty of, they want him home as soon as possible and are planning to ground him for the next couple of months.
Going further, the source also shared that during this period, Aryan Khan will not be allowed to attend any parties, get togethers, late nights or go out with friends. Shah Rukh Khan and his wife, Gauri Khan have also decided to keep a strict check on their son's company. In short, the protective parents are planning to ensure that he stays away from anyone and everyone who can bring even the slightest of troubles to him.
For the unversed, in the last hearing, Aryan Khan's custody under the NCB was extended till October 30, 2021.
