Since his arrest by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) in a Mumbai cruise drug bust case, Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan’s son Aryan Khan has been making headlines. For SRK and his family, the last three days have been extremely trying. SRK’s fans and friends have spoken out in support of him and Gauri Khan. Raju Rahikwar, SRK’s lookalike, has also shown his support for King Khan.
While talking to Pinkvilla, he said, “I am not the right person to comment on it, but all I can say is that they are like my family too. Unke naam se hi mera kaam aur mera ghar chalta hai. My wife keeps a fast for all the nine days of Navratri, and this time I have told her to pray for Khan Saab and his family. We are praying that Aryan bhai comes back home soon.”
He also remembered the time when time he met Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan for the first time. “I had seen him when he was very young, maybe a year-and-a-half or two years old. This was at the Holy Family Hospital in Bandra, I had gone to meet a relative there and Shah Rukh bhai and Gauri bhabhi were also there. So I went up to Khan Saab, touched his feet, and told him that I imitate him. He was curious, asked more about my work, conveyed his good wishes for my parents, and later even introduced me to Gauri bhabhi. He gave me his office’s number too to stay in touch. Such is that man, always so humble and supportive. I really hope that things get sorted soon, and Aryan bhai comes back home.”
Revealing about losing work during this time, he said, “I am sure they will come back in abundance tomorrow. I recently got an offer for two shows in October, but then the organisers called back cancelling them, stating ‘aapko toh pata hai mahol kya chal raha hai’. They even added that permissions for the events are becoming a challenge too because of the pandemic. So I understood what they are trying to convey, and I am absolutely fine with it. Khan saab ke naam pe 100 shows Kurbaan.”
