“Trust me. In time when you connect the dots… I promise you, It’s gonna make sense,” actor Hrithik Roshan wrote in a heartfelt note for Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan. The 23-year-old was arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) for alleged possession of banned drugs and substance in the Mumbai drugs-on-cruise case and has been consistently vilified on social media after his arrest.
Striking a reassuring note, Hrithik Roshan wrote, “You know you are chosen when amidst the chaos you can feel the pressure to hold your own. And I know you must feel it now. The anger, the confusion, the helplessness. Aaah , the very ingredients that are needed to burn the hero out from inside you.”
Reflecting on his relationship with Aryan Khan, Hrithik wrote, “I’ve known you as a kid and I’ve known you as a man. Own it. Own everything you experience. They are your gifts.”
“You must go through the dark. Calm, still, owning your own. And trusting the light. Within. It’s always there,” Hrithik Roshan signed off the note adding, “Love you, man.”
The note comes as Aryan Khan will be produced before a court in Mumbai today as his custody ends. His counsel will apply for bail in the case again. On Monday, Aryan was denied bail and sent to custody till Thursday by a Mumbai court although in court his lawyer argued that he was a special invitee to the cruise ship and therefore “cannot be roped in with the entire seizure in the case”.
Aryan Khan was arrested by the NCB after officials in disguise raided a rave party on the Cordelia Cruise ship which was on its way to Goa. Eight persons including Aryan Khan were detained on Saturday evening. The anti-drugs bureau said the raids produced a haul of 13 grams of cocaine, 21 grams of charas, 22 pills of MDMA and 5 grams of MD.
