Shah Rukh Khan's Close Friend Reveals Leaked Chats With Sameer Wankhede Are Fake, 'He Did Not Plead'

Shah Rukh Khan and NCB’s officer, Sameer Wankhede are currently ruling the headlines after their alleged WhatsApp conversation was leaked on social media on May 19, 2023. Pictures of their conversation are all over the internet, leaving netizens stunned and choked.

Shah Rukh Khan’s leaked WhatsApp chats with NCB's Sameer Wankhede are fake, claims SRK's close friend

However, now a close friend of Shah Rukh Khan has come forward, and in a conversation with ETimes, he has shared his views about the WhatsApp chats that have been leading all the headlines at the moment. Sharing his thoughts about the same, SRK’s friend challenged the authenticity of the conversation between the actor and the NCB officer. While explaining the reasons behind his claim, he stated that Shah Rukh doesn’t talk like this, and he never pleaded for Aryan. He stated:

"The chats could not have happened. SRK never uses WhatsApp. If these chats are authentic, then he created a chat box for Mr Wankhede. Is he so stupid as to put himself out there in the public domain? The language used, the pauses, the way the father is seen pleading for his son… are all highly unlikely to be authentic. SRK doesn’t talk like that."

Further, in the same interview, Shah Rukh Khan’s close friend also recalled the time when Aryan Khan was in jail, and the NCB was doing their investigation. Opening up about the same, he said that Shah Rukh had the utmost trust and belief in the judiciary system of this country. Hence, he never contacted neither Sameer Wankhede or any other officer or person, who was playing a role in his son’s case. Not only this, but SRK’s friend also added that the doting father was quite confident about his son’s innocence and knew that he would come out, which was why he waited patiently. Shah Rukh’s close friend stated:

"When his (Shah Rukh Khan) son was jailed, he contacted no one to get Aryan out. He believed firmly in letting the law takes its course. Night after sleepless night, SRK waited for his son to be released. He did not plead with any government officer for his son’s freedom. He knew Aaryan was innocent. He waited."
