Following their detention, Aryan Khan accused NCB of “ruining reputation,” while Shah Rukh Khan claimed they’d been branded as “criminals, monsters.”


According to a fresh allegation, Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan asked NCB officers if he deserved to be labelled a “international drug trafficker” despite the fact that no illegal substances were detected on his person. In October of last year, Aryan was arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) in connection with an alleged drug raid onboard a cruise ship off the coast of Mumbai. He was held in jail for several weeks before being released on bond.

He was accused of anything from illicit narcotics possession to links to international criminal gangs. The NCB, however, gave him a clean bill of health in May 2022, citing a lack of “adequate evidence.”

According to India Today, NCB deputy director-general (operations) Sanjay Singh, who led the SIT investigating the case, recalled his interactions with Aryan. He’d promised Aryan that he’d talk to him ‘with an open mind.’

Aryan, he claims, asked him a few “soul-searching questions.” “Sir, you have depicted me as an international drug trafficker, and you have accused me of financing drug trafficking — aren’t these claims absurd?” he asked. Despite the fact that no narcotics were found on my person that day, I was detained. Sir, you have disgraced me and tarnished my image. Was it really necessary for me to spend so many weeks in prison – did I deserve it?”

The actor has resumed work properly after spending several months beneath the radar. He’ll appear in three films next year: Pathaan, Jawan, and Dunki, all of which were announced in quick succession during the last few weeks. Suhana Khan will make her acting debut in the upcoming Netflix feature The Archies, and Aryan is reportedly penning scripts for streaming platforms.
