Bollywood superstar, Shah Rukh Khan's life has been a hell of a rollercoaster ride in the past few months. He was under complete stress ever since his elder son, Aryan Khan, was arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau in connection with the Mumbai drugs case. The doting father was on his toes and had left no stones unturned to get his son out of jail. And now that his son is finally out on bail, the Raees actor is trying his level best to ensure the safety of his child.
However, as per the reports, King Khan is all set to start shooting for his upcoming movies, Tiger 3 and Pathan. Moreover, he is worried about Aryan's safety in his absence, as he will be caught up in his hectic schedule. Therefore, he has been on the lookout for a bodyguard for Aryan, who would accompany him on his visits to the NCB office, and protect him from all the troubles.

A few days back, a source close to the Khan family had revealed that Shah Rukh Khan had intensified the search for a bodyguard for his son, Aryan Khan. The source was quoted as saying:
"Shah Rukh will soon have to head out of the city and country for the shoots of his films. And Ravi Singh, who has been assisting Aryan to and back from the NCB office will leave with SRK. In their absence, he wants someone reliable to accompany Aryan."

However, Shah Rukh has now finally decided that instead of looking for a new person for Aryan, he will let his bodyguard, Ravi Singh, stay in the city and ensure the safety of Aryan. A source close to his family told BollywoodLife that Shah Rukh will take on a new bodyguard with himself while he goes out for his shoot, and stated:
“Aryan is not someone to get very comfortable in a new person’s company but he has known Ravi Singh for years now and shares a good rapport with him. He is supposed to visit the NCB office every Friday and with the new team investigating the case, there may be frequent summons and in such a case, Shah Rukh feels it is best to have someone known and trusted along with Aryan. So that he can be at peace when he is away from home for shoots.”
Aryan Khan is supposed to visit the NCB office every Friday, and with the new team investigating the case, there may be frequent summons, and in such a case, getting a bodyguard with Aryan is the best option. This would also allow King Khan to be at peace and focus on his shoots, away from home.
Ever since Aryan has come out of jail, he has become quieter and has gone into a shell. A close friend of Shah Rukh Khan had told Bollywood Hungama that Aryan, who was an introvert, was traumatised by the jail experience. He had also added that Aryan has become more reserved and spends much of his time in his room only and doesn't even interact with his friends. The source had said:
"He is not saying much, and he is keeping to himself. He stays in his room most of the time, shows no interest in going out to meet friends. He was always quiet. Now he is even quieter. As the days since his bail turn into weeks, Aryan remains clammed up. The family lets him remain the way he is."
For the unversed, Aryan Khan and seven others were arrested by Narcotics Control Bureau on October 3, 2021, after drugs were seized on a Mumbai cruise party that he was attending. He was lodged at the Arthur Road jail, and it was on October 21, 2021, that his father, Shah Rukh Khan, had visited him in jail. Aryan was represented by Mukul Rohatgi, who had flown down from London for the hearing. The court had rejected multiple bail applications of the 23-year-old, Aryan. However, on October 28, 2021, the Bombay High Court granted bail for the superstar's son, Aryan.
On the professional front, Shah Rukh Khan will be next seen in the film, Pathan.
