Actor Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan as well as his friend Arbaaz Merchant are also behind bars in a drug case. Both Aryan and Arbaaz are lodged in Arthur Road Jail.
Arbaaz Merchant’s father Aslam Merchant is a lawyer by profession. Aslam has said a lot about Aryan Khan in his recent interview. Aslam says Aryan Khan has a hope, as his father is Shahrukh Khan.
In an interview to a portal, Aslam said that he hoped that Aryan and Arbaaz might get bail soon in this case, but at the time it was going on, he was upset. “Personally I think what Aryan is looking forward to releasing is his father Shah Rukh Khan, who is a very popular and influential person,” he said. But neither Arbaaz nor his father have that kind of influence.
Arbaaz is very unlucky
He further said that we are just normal people who have no relation. I think Arbaaz is very unlucky. It was in the wrong place, at the wrong time. I think it’s just destiny, but I am happy with how he poses with his best friend Aryan. He is a very loyal friend. I call it Yaro ka yaar.
Let us inform that Arbaaz was also arrested by the team of Narcotics Control Bureau from the same cruise from where Aryan Khan was arrested. Some reports, citing NCB, claimed that the NCB team had received some amount of drugs from Arbaaz. Not only this, Arbaaz and Aryan’s WhatsApp chat was also claimed to contain drug related stuff. Arbaaz and Aryan are said to have international drug connections. However, NCB has not produced any evidence in this regard so far.
Currently, Aryan Khan is in judicial custody since October 8. Aryan’s lawyer had approached the Bombay High Court last week after his bail application was rejected by the NDPS court. Court will hear Aryan Khan’s bail application tomorrow (October 26). At the same time, no statement has come out from Shahrukh Khan after Aryan Khan’s arrest. Not only this, last Thursday, Shahrukh Khan reached Arthur Road Jail to meet his son. At the same time, Gauri Khan reached the jail today to meet her son.
