On October 3rd, The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) detained eight individuals for allegedly consuming, and dealing drugs at a cruise party at the Bombay coast.

However, some celebrities have taken a stand against those who have already declared him a sinner. The actors expressed their support for him and his family and have requested the media not to jump to conclusions before the court’s verdict.
Celebrities Speaking Up for Aryan Khan
Bollywood is a name praised for many reasons but notorious for one particular thing is nepotism. Due to this term, many people assume that star kids do not have the right to be famous for no reason and therefore pass judgments. According to several people, this is one of the reasons why Aryan khan is facing heated comments on social media like he is the son of king khan thus no govt or law can touch him. Given the current situation and ongoing investigation, some celebrities started expressing their support for Sharukh khan and his son. Some talked about how media is portraying a negative image of Khan whereas, others are condoling SRK and his family to be strong.
