In a plot straight out of the all-time favorite American comic book 'Richie Rich', rich and poor Aryan Khan told the DEA that his father and megastar Shah Rukh Khan are still so busy he sometimes needs a date just to meet him.
Ironically, life took a complete turn when two days ago, Shah Rukh Khan had to ask the Narcotics Control Bureau for permission for a brief meeting with his son in custody, when the 24-year-old cried in front of his famous father, though eventually, it has surfaced that no drugs were recovered from him.
Aryan Khan, along with at least 10 other people, were arrested and detained on several occasions Sunday and Monday in the NCB's first raid on a luxury ship, Cordelia Cruise, as it was preparing to lift anchor for a fun-filled two-night gala voyage to Goa with around 1,300 affluent passengers on board.
The other youngsters in the NCB net are Munmum Dhamecha, Arbaaz Merchant, Vikrant Chhoker, Nupur Sarika, Ismeet Singh, Mohak Jaiswal, and Gomit Chopra, and the rest nabbed in the second NCB operation aboard the cruiser on Monday.
The NCB raid, which shook the heart of Bollywood when a possible future child star of a ruling actor was involved, almost sounded unbelievable till a video clip of a dazed Aryan Khan sitting on a bench inside the agency office in south Mumbai emerged on Sunday evening.
In Monday's court session, during one of the heated moments of the controversy, Aryan's lawyer, Satish Maneshinde, said that it was not as if "Khan (Aryan) was selling drugs on the ship, if he wants, he could buy the ship. ".
While they were held for several hours, subsequently arrested, and now in the custody of the NCB until October 7, there was support at the border of concern from Bollywood circles about Aryan's well-being inside the dank and inhospitable prison. from the agency.
Concerned about her son's nutritional health, Gauri Khan ran to the NCB office armed with some packages of McDonald's burgers in her car, hoping Aryan would enjoy them.
The central office is expected to strictly but politely deny their pleas and breach the bill for "security reasons," just as they refused to allow the co-defendant the luxury of home-cooked food in prison after they were caught and dumped. -on the floor of the luxury boat.
However, the young people accused of the delusional party are not entirely hungry, and in recent days, they have been gifted with street food such as "puri bhaji, dal chawal, sabzi parathas" from the roadside stalls, as well as biryani or pulao dishes from a nearby restaurant, said to be a favorite even with the CIA.
The usual band-box style of aura and glam appearance of Aryan and the other boys-girls was starkly missing, and most did not seem to have changed their attire for nearly 3 days - a far cry from their routine of wearing and discarding designer outfits at the drop of a hat!
In the past three decades, the only other two people to ever spend time behind bars have been Sanjay Dutt and Salman Khan, who have sparked a similar media frenzy with much absurd love from their battalions of fans.
While Dutt was completing his full sentence in Yerawada Central Jail, Pune, as a full convict, Salman spent a total of approximately 3 weeks in Rajasthan Jail as an initial measure.
