Sussanne Khan has come out in support of Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan’s son, Aryan Khan after his arrest in alleged connection with the seizure of banned drugs onboard a cruise ship off Mumbai coast on October 2. Aryan Khan was “at the wrong place at the wrong time”, the interior designer said on Tuesday, reacting strongly to social media users.
In the comment section of a journalist’s Instagram post, which said that Aryan’s arrest should be “a wakeup call for parents,” Sussanne Khan, who is a close family friend of the Khans, wrote, “I think this is not about Aryan Khan, as he was unfortunately at the wrong place at the wrong time.” Adding that Aryan is a “good kid” Sussanne wrote, “It’s sad and unfair as he is a good kid. I stand by Gauri and Shah Rukh.”
Meanwhile, Bollywood playback singer Mika Singh on Tuesday seemingly took a dig at the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) over Aryan Khan’s arrest. Taking to his Twitter handle, Mika shared the picture of the cruise and wrote, “Wow what a beautiful @CordeliaCruises I wish I could have visited. I heard that a lot of people were there but I couldn’t see anyone else except #AryanKhan… Itne bade cruise mein sirf Aryan hi ghoom raha tha kya (Was Aryan the only one roaming around on that big cruise)… hadd hai (too much)… good morning have a wonderful day..”
Salman Khan Visits Shah Rukh Khan at Mannat; Pooja Bhatt, Suniel Shetty Stand Behind SRK Over Drugs Case
Several film personalities including Salman Khan, Suniel Shetty, Hansal Mehta, Pooja Bhatt and Suchitra Krishnamoorthi have rallied in support of Shah Rukh Khan over the drugs case. Salman paid a visit to Shah Rukh at Mannat on Sunday. Actress Pooja Bhatt tweeted, “I stand in solidarity with you @iamsrk. Not that you need it. But I do. This too shall pass.”
Voicing his support for Shah Rukh’s son, Suniel Shetty said, “I would like to say that wherever there is a raid, several people are caught. And we assume that this child must have consumed drugs or this child must have done it. But the proceedings are on, let’s give that child a breather. Whenever something happens in Bollywood, the media scrutinises everything and jumps to conclusions. Give the child an opportunity. Let the real reports come out. Baccha hai (He’s a kid). Taking care of him is our responsibility.”
Meanwhile, actor Sikander Kher was asked about the arrest. Talking to India Today, the actor said, “”I don’t want to name anyone in particular. All I can say is that when it comes to anything that involves the law, let it take its own course. How can I just go around and say ‘he is guilty, she is guilty, ye murderer hai, woh murderer hai’? Do you even have any idea how you can destroy someone’s life with your loose mouth talking about, him or anybody else? I think it’s very important as a human being to first know facts, you can’t loosely talk about anyone. At the end of the day, there is a human being involved.”
