Over last 25 days, the country has been frenzy over one big news that struck the nation, it is arrest of Aryan Khan, the son of Bollywood Badshah Shah Rukh Khan. Aryan was arrested by Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) in a drugs case. It is said that Aryan was traveling on a cruise ship from Mumbai to Goa and he was caught with drugs. This news sent shock waves across the Bollywood and even across the nation.
Shah Rukh Khan till date has not been involved in any kind of major controversies. He has always avoided controversial things and held his position as the Kind of Bollywood. But his son’s arrest and subsequent sending him to jail was something that he never imagined.
Though Bollywood was not vociferous on its support to Shah Rukh, but he got considerable support from people for being caught in this unfortunate situation. The Badshah cancelled all his shootings and stayed back in Mumbai. He managed to stay away from media and making any kind of comments, similarly there was no reaction on the episode from his fans. This triggered his haters and tried to provoke him.
Interestingly, the case took different turns, only to prove that Aryan Khan was a victim of bigger conspiracy, said many people. He was named as person who was caught consuming drugs, he was branded as a habitual drug user, but all these failed to be proved despite several blood tests and other tests were conducted on him. Later the police and NCB called Aryan Khan a drug peddler, even this was not proved. But he was denied bail.
If he was a drug user or abuser, he should have been recommended for rehabilitation. Unfortunately nothing of that sort was done. Despite numerous attempts at getting bail, Aryan Khan and his lawyers failed.
In the meantime, the integrity of the NCB head who is probing the case was questioned. He is being called as known offender; he has got the job by producing fake certificates and is also the person who is corrupt. His own bodyguard had come out in public and made it clear that they were trying to strike a deal with Shah Rukh Khan’s manager for Rs 25 crore to close the case!
In another incident the person, who had caught hold of Aryan Khan at or near the cruise ship, is also involved several other cases and he was arrested by Pune police. There is a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader also involved in the case it is also being probed. From drugs case to investigation on the investigating officers and the people involved in getting Aryan Khan arrested, the fizz has been lost.
Finally, Aryan Khan is granted bail and he comes back to home with lots of conditions given by the court. It seems Shah Rukh Khan’s son has been implicated in the case and over a period, without any logical proofs in hand, will be released from the case, but the politics of the entire episode will lead to the political game that was played and also the corrupt officialdom!
