Actor Salman Khan visited fellow actor Shah Rukh Khan’s Mumbai home around midnight on Sunday, hours after the Bollywood superstar’s son, Aryan Khan, was arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on drug-related charges.
Khan was seen arriving in a white SUV and being driven inside the gate of ‘Mannat’, Shah Rukh Khan’s sea-facing bungalow in the Bandra suburb of Mumbai.
Shah Rukh Khan’s son, Aryan, 23, was arrested along with seven others on Sunday following a raid by the Narcotics Control Bureau on a cruise ship party off the Mumbai coast.
Shah Rukh Khan was seen leaving his home and heading for his lawyer’s office shortly before the news broke.
The charges brought against Aryan include purchase, possession and use of banned substances, the NCB said. He is currently in the NCB’s custody and is to be presented in court today for his bail hearing.
The NCB is seeking custody for further probe in the drug case, as Aryan Khan’s bail plea is heard. Zonal director, Sameer Wankhede stated, “NCB will seek further custody of Aryan Khan. I cannot reveal the links and the findings of last evening’s interrogation, but there are areas we need to investigate.”
Shah Rukh Khan’s wife Gauri earlier was spotted leaving for court to attend the hearing in court.
