After three weeks, superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan was granted bail on Thursday by the Bombay High Court. As told by Aryan Khan’s lawyer Mukul Rohatgi, SRK was relieved and was in tears after the order.
Following the order, SRK was seen posing with his legal team and manager Pooja Dadlani. During such a critical point in time, a few of SRK’s industry friends and partners reached out to him to congratulate him. Among those fellows were Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar and Suniel Shetty.
While Salman has as of now visited SRK three times in Mannat, SRK’s other friends have continually been in contact with him via phone. The equivalent is the situation with Gauri, who has been on calls with her friends continually to help her through these difficult times. Last evening, October 28, when the news on Aryan Khan being granted bail broke, SRK got congratulatory calls from a significant number of his industry friends. A friend close to the family told media, “SRK got calls from everyone from Salman Khan, Suniel Shetty, Akshay Kumar. Gauri was heard crying on the phone to her friends Maheep Kapoor and Seema Khan, who have been with her daily on the phone giving support. Gauri broke down as soon as the text came in regarding the bail. She was in tears and was seen falling on her knees and praying. Suhana Khan spoke to Aryan’s friends in the US and UK and thanked them for their support in the last few weeks.”
A source told media that SRK had been staying elsewhere for quite some time now, particularly after the Aryan Khan case began drawing in fans and the paparazzi outside Mannat. Aryan Khan was set under the Narcotics Control Bureau’s authority on October 3, and later sent to judicial custody on October 8. In the midst of this, fans had assembled outside Mannat to help SRK and Aryan.
Another source told media, “It seems SRK was concerned about the law and order situation, and to avoid that, he decided to check into Trident in Mumbai. In fact, he has not been using his usual car either. SRK is currently commuting in a Hyundai Creta instead of his usual BMW.”
This was not any surprise as the media had earlier showed how SRK had asked his friends to land up at Mannat to guarantee security.
