Back in October 2021, a huge controversy had taken place as Shah Rukh Khan‘s son Aryan Khan was arrested in a drug case at a Mumbai cruise party. ell, the news was up in the air for almost a month with a new twist each day. Now, almost after half a year, veteran actor Shatrughan Sinha took a dig on this.
Talking to Bombay Times, Shatrughan Sinha told that his mindset seems to have been acquitted now. The actor said that he not only supported Aryan Khan but also supported Shah Rukh Khan. He further added, “All the people involved in framing an innocent boy and sending him behind the bars for no rhyme or reason, without any evidence and without any proper investigation must be taken to task with deterrent punishment. So that in future they might have to think one thousand times before taking such a step.”
“This seems to be politics of vendetta. This is not acceptable, especially by a high profile institution like NCB. I can understand the pain, anguish and helplessness that Shah Rukh Khan must have gone through,” said the actor.
Well, a year back, during this controversy, Sinha had opened up about his kids’ upbringing. “Chunauti ho ya na ho, aisa zaroor hona chahiye. Mera shuru se maanna hai, main toh preach aur practice karta hoon, anti-tobacco campaign karta hoon. Main humesha kehta hoon, ‘say no to drugs and shun tobacco’ (Whether it is challenging or not, they must guide their children. I practice what I preach; I am part of anti-tobacco campaigns. I always say, ‘say no to drugs and shun tobacco’).”
Further adding he revealed that he is actually proud that his kids are never part of such scams. He stated, “Aaj main iss maamle mein bhagyashaali samajhta hoon ki mere bachche hai, Luv-Kush aur meri beti Sonakshi, main inn bachchon ke baare mein bohot fakhr se keh sakta hoon ki inki upbringing itni achchi hui hai ki inko kisi kism ki aisi koi habit ya aise maamle mein na unko kabhi suna hai, na dekha hai, na paaya hai na woh karte hai aisi koi harkat (I consider myself lucky that my children – Luv, Kush and Sonakshi… I can proudly say that their upbringing is so good that they don’t have any such habit. I have never heard them being associated with or seen them doing such things).”
