Shah Rukh Khan is braving a personal storm as his eldest son, Aryan Khan has been sent to NCB custody till October 7.
According to reports, the superstar has since been receiving calls and text messages from his close friends from the Bollywood film industry. While fellow B-town star Salman Khan and sister Alvira zoomed over to Mannat to be by SRK’s side, others, including Deepika Padukone, Kajol, director Karan Johar, Rohit Shetty and many others have been reaching out to him, states an India Today report.
It goes on to add that SRK’s team has put out a request to Bollywood celebs to avoid visiting the family at their residence, keeping in mind the security hassle with the paparazzi gathered outside the bungalow.
Several Bollywood stars have spoken up and raised suspicion over the motive behind the NCB arresting the star kids. While Hrithik Roshan’s ex-wife Sussanne Khan called the incident ‘unfortunate’, Hansal Mehta called it ‘disrespectful and unfair’. Several other stars and politicians have also taken to social media to stand in support with SRK.
Mika Singh even took to his handle this morning to questions the NCB’s motive behind Aryan Khan’s arrest. In his tweet, he wrote, “Wow what a beautiful @CordeliaCruises I wish I could have visited. I heard lots of people were there but I couldn’t see anyone else accept #AaryanKhan… Itne bade cruse mei sirf Aryan hi ghoom raha tha kya… hadd hai.. good morning have a wonderful day…”
Meanwhile, NCB Zonal Director, Sameer Wankhede refuted all allegations that there is an effort to target SRK and his son.
Speaking to ETimes, he said, “We are not targeting anyone at all. We have nothing against him. We have arrested more than 300 people in the last 10 months. Out of those, at the most, there would be about 4 to 5 known people. How can you say that we are targeting anyone? Most of those arrested in the last one year are hard-core, drug-related criminals.”
