Mumbai: With Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan being detained with several others following a raid by Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on an alleged rave party on a cruise ship last night, actor Suniel Shetty on Sunday asked fans, media to ‘let the boy breathe’.
“The fact is, whenever there’s a raid, many people are taken. We assume that this child has consumed something, or this child has done that. The investigation is underway. Let’s give that child a breather. Whenever something like this from our industry happens, the media cracks down on it and we make assumptions, give the child an opportunity, let the real reports come out, till then, he’s a child, taking care of him is our responsibility,” Suniel Shetty told ANI.
