After 26 days, Shah Rukh Khan's family rejoiced with happiness after the Bombay High Court granted bail to Aryan Khan in the cruise drug case. It was on October 3, 2021, when Aryan was arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau after they had raided a cruise ship. The court had rejected Aryan's bail multiple times, however, October 28, 2021, came as a pleasant surprise to SRK and his fans, who were rooting for Aryan and were praying for his bail.
The former Attorney General of India, Mukul Rohatgi, had represented Aryan Khan in the Bombay High court. In his plea to the court, Mukul Rohatgi had said that Aryan was invited on the cruise as a guest, and there was no recovery of drugs from him. The other two accused in the case, Arbaaz Merchant and Munmun Dhamecha, are also granted bail from the Bombay HC.
After Aryan Khan was granted bail, everyone rejoiced in happiness. And it was Aryan's sister, Suhana Khan, who couldn't control her emotions. Taking to her IG handle, Suhana shared an adorable collage with him and their father, Shah Rukh Khan. The collage consisted of four monochrome pictures of Aryan and Suhana, being their goofy best with SRK. She captioned the post as "I love you."
Mukul Rohatgi, who had appeared for Aryan Khan, revealed that Shah Rukh Khan had tears of joy in his eyes when he met him after the bail hearing. Talking about the same, the former Attorney General said:
"He was a relieved man [today]. He had been a worried man. He used to make his own notes for the case and discuss them with me over the last few days."
Several fan clubs celebrated Aryan's bail as pre-Diwali. SRK's fans patiently waited outside the court and his house, Mannat, with posters of Aryan, when the news of his bail broke out. As soon as Aryan was granted bail, his younger brother, AbRam had come out at the terrace of Mannat and had waved at the happy crowd in true Shah Rukh Khan style.
After Aryan was granted bail, Shah Rukh Khan's legal team had released an official statement with a couple of pictures with the superstar. In the statement, they had written:
"Aryan Khan has ultimately been released on bail by the High Court. No possession, no evidence, no consumption, no conspiracy, right from the first moment when he was detained on October 2, 2021. Nor is there anything as of now. We are grateful to the almighty that our prayers were accepted by Mr Justice Nitin Sambre and he granted bail to Aryan. Satya Meva Jayate."
In the pictures, the actor was seen posing with the team of his lawyers, who had fought his son, Aryan's case and his manager, Pooja Dadlani. However, Shah Rukh's happy smile had depicted the pain he had gone through in the past few days.
Congratulations to Shah Rukh Khan and his family.
