Bhubaneswar: After the Bollywood fraternity, Congress leader Shashi Tharoor has come out in support of Shah Rukh Khan after the arrest of his son Aryan in the drug-on-cruise case.
“I am no fan of recreational drugs & haven’t ever tried any, but I am repelled by the ghoulish epicaricacy displayed by those now witch-hunting @iamsrk on his son’s arrest. Have some empathy, folks. The public glare is bad enough; no need to gleefully rub a 23yr old’s face in it,” he tweeted.
Aryan is among the 11 so far arrested in connection with the alleged drugs party onboard a cruise ship off the Mumbai coast. He along with seven others have been remanded to NCB custody till October 4.
With Aryan custody being extended, Salman Khan’s sister Alvira and sister-in-law Seema Khan visited SRK”s Mannat on Monday to extend their support to the actor. Salman had visited him on Sunday. Maheep Kapoor, Sabina Khan and Neelam Kothari were also seen at his bungalow.
Filmmaker Karan Johar and Manish Malhotra reportedly left their work and arrived in Mumbai on Monday.
