Shah Rukh Khan Gets More Support From Ali Fazal And Others After Byju’s Pulls Out Ads Amid Aryan Khan’s Arrest



Shah Rukh Khan’s woes are far from over. The Bollywood actor who was prepping and shooting to be back on screen and entertain his countless fans has indefinitely his work commitments following the arrest of his son Aryan Khan in a drugs case. The star kid remains in judicial custody after being arrested on October 3 with seven others by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB). He was arrested along with seven others in connection with a rave party and seizure of banned drugs onboard a Goa-bound cruise liner. It was reported that he has been booked under the sections 8C, 20B, 27 and 35 of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act related to charges of possession, consumption and sale of illegal substances identified under the law.

According to Hindustan Times, SRK’s son is currently in Arthur Road prison after a Mumbai court rejected his bail plea on Friday and was sent into judicial custody for 14-days. At the hearing, Aryan, through his lawyer Satish Maneshinde, said “I have parents and a family here. I have an Indian passport and I am not going to abscond. There is no question of tampering.” But the court rejected it on the grounds that it was not maintainable.

But while that was that, it was reported that Khan’s profitable association with ed-tech company Byju’s has come to a halt amid the high-profile, sensational case and arrest. Although it is not yet known if they have dropped him as a brand ambassador altogether, the company has pulled the featuring the actor despite advance bookings.

A source close to the development told The Economic Times, “They (Byju’s) have paused all SRK-related promotions for now. It had to be pulled as the company which is in the area of education wouldn’t like to be seen in promotions with him given the controversy (over the drug case involving his son).” The insider added, “These ads were booked in advance—as is the process—so it took some time to stop all of them.”

So much for business ethics. But at least the industry is standing up for SRK in what seems to be a case build and designed to distract from bigger issues like “the 3000kg Talibani-drug haul at the Adani port, and to distract from the murder of farmers by the son of a BJP member/MLA.” Ali Fazal to Vishal Dadlani and from Raj Babbar to Shekhar Suman, B-town celebs are rallying for the superstar and have joined the likes of Jackie Shroff, Pooja Bhatt, Hansal Mehta.

Meanwhile, Shah Rukh Khan will next be seen in Pathan where he will reunite with Deepika Padukone after Om Shanti Om star, Happy New Year and Chennai Express, alongside John Abraham as the protagonist. It is directed by Siddharth Anand of War fame and produced by Yash Raj Films. The film has not been officially announced yet and if the recent developments are any indication, it might be a while.
