As Aryan Khan was arrested in connection with the drugs that were collected by the NCB at one of the parties on a cruise, he has been making news for many reasons. He was released earlier this month and since then he has remained under the lock. There seemed some hope on the 20th October hearing, however, the bail seemed rejected on the said day and we see SRK lawyers knocking the doors of the High Court. Also, we saw SRK visiting the jail to meet his son and they are now eyeing on the hearing on 26th October when Bombay High Court is going to go for the hearing on the drugs case.
In the meantime, as per Bollywood Hungama portal, the name of a middleman has appeared who has alleged that they have demanded around INR 25 Crores from SRK to release Aryan Khan in this case. As per reports, an independent witness called Prabhakar Raghoji Sail came up with the claim of 25 Crores to release the son at the said cost. However, the NCB official has called this claim to be malicious and false. We saw Sail releasing the video with the affidavit stating that NCB has detained Aryan Khan on the basis of the alleged WhatsApp chat.
As per reports, around 18 Crores was meant to go for the NCB and 8 Crores was meant to go for the Zonal Director Mr. Sameer Wankhede. It also claimed that they had the meeting at Lower Parel where the manager of SRK was present. However, there was no positive response coming from SRK’s manager. It also alleged that Wankhede had taken signatures on around 10 blank pages while he was investigating the drug bust case.
