Actor Karan Patel said that Aryan Khan was being used to target Shah Rukh Khan. The star kid was arrested on October 3. He is currently in judicial custody and lodged at the Arthur Road prison.
Karan Patel has come out in support of Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan and his son Aryan Khan in a case related to the seizure of drugs following a raid at a party on a cruise ship off the Mumbai coast. The actor claimed that Aryan was being used to target Shah Rukh.
Taking to his Instagram Stories, Karan wrote “Using the ‘Prince’ to get back at the ‘KING’ is the most coward and shameful act that can be. Just because you needed a dark spot to hide a bigger issue, You are trying to stop the ‘Son’ from shining, well, you can’t… It’s in his genes. #ImWithSRKAlways.” To complete his post, Karan added, ‘#AfewThousandKilos vs #AnEmptyDuffleBag.’ Also Read-Aryan Khan Case: Kangana Ranaut Takes A Dig At Shah Rukh Khan For Not Apologising
Since Friday, Aryan Khan has been lodged at the Arthur Road jail after his bail plea was rejected by a metropolitan magistrate’s court on the grounds that it was not maintainable, which means that the forum chosen to seek bail was incorrect. A special Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act court will hear the application next on Wednesday.
