Since Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan was arrested, a number of Bollywood stars have stepped forward to show their support for the Khan family. Shatrughan Sinha, a veteran actor and politician, is the latest to weigh in on the situation, claiming that the star youngster is being singled out because of his father.
Aryan Khan, the son of actor Shah Rukh Khan, is now detained at Mumbai’s Arthur Road Jail. Aryan was taken into custody by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on October 3 after the cocaine bust on the Cordelia Cruises Empress ship on October 2. The rising celebrity was remanded in detention of the NCB until October 7.
Following an appearance in magistrate court, Aryan and the others arrested in the case were sentenced to a total of 14 days in judicial custody. The magistrate court in Mumbai denied interim bail to Aryan Khan on October 8. Today is the day that his bail application will be heard (October 13).
In support of Aryan Khan and Shah Rukh Khan, Shatrughan Sinha has gone out in the open. The veteran actor claimed in an interview with ETimes that Aryan has been singled out because he is SRK’s son. They want Shah Rukh to fight his own struggle, he stated regarding the film business needing time to coalesce for him.
“We cannot argue that SRK’s religion has gotten in the way,” he adds of the allegations that he is being singled out for criticism because of his faith. Everyone who calls themselves an Indian is a son of India, and under our constitution, everyone is treated equally. Shatrughan, on the other hand, was eager to point out that Aryan is the target of animosity since he is SRK’s son. He went on to say, “The youngster is being hunted down because of Shah Rukh. Nothing is said about other names like Munmun Dhamecha and Arbaaz Merchant. The previous time something similar occurred, the spotlight was on Deepika Padukone, even though other names and well-known faces were also engaged.”
The industry, according to Shatrughan Sinha, is taking its time before it fully backs Shah Rukh Khan. However, a few of Bollywood stars have declared their support for the actor from the start. Many Bollywood stars, including Hrithik Roshan and Raveena Tandon, took to social media to show their support.
