Sushant Singh Rajput was a huge fan of Shah Rukh Khan and regarded him to be his idol. The actor never missed an occasion to show his affection for SRK, whether on-screen or off, at numerous events and interviews. That’s why SRK’s followers gathered outside his Mannat bungalow today to show their support for the superstar while his son, Aryan Khan, battles for his freedom after being jailed in an alleged rave party case.
Throughout this ordeal, Shah Rukh’s supporters have been by his side. They have been vocal in their support for SRK on social media and have demonstrated their love by writing ‘We stand with Shah Rukh Khan’ on large hoardings outside his home.
Not just fans, but the whole film industry has claimed that the agency has targeted SRK and his son in the case. Aryan’s lawyer, Satish Maneshinde, has requested for his bail in the matter while the inquiry is ongoing. The matter will be heard on Wednesday, October 13 at the Special NDPS court in Mumbai, where the NCB’s Additional Solicitor General, Anil Singh, will argue that Aryan requires judicial custody in order to continue the investigation into the drugs case in which the agency has made some new arrests.
Salman Khan, Hrithik Roshan, filmmakers Zoya Akhtar, Farah Khan, Hansal Mehta, actors Raveena Tandon, Pooja Bhatt, Suchitra Krishnamoorthi, Somy Ali, and comedian Johnny Lever are among those who have come out in favour of Shah Rukh and his wife Gauri Khan.
When the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) busted a narcotics party on board a cruise liner on October 3, Aryan Khan, 23, and seven others were arrested. He is currently being held in Arthur Road prison after his bail application was denied by a Mumbai court.
