“Shameful politics”: After Sunil Shetty, Hrithik Roshan, now Raveena Tandon extends public support to Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan


After Sunil Shetty and Hrithik Roshan, actor Raveena Tandon has openly supported Aryan Khan, days after Shah Rukh Khan’s son was arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau in a drug case.

Terming Aryan’s arrest ‘shameful politics,’ Raveena wrote on social media, “Shameful politics being played out.. it’s a young mans life and future they toying with … heartbreaking.”

The NCB had arrested Aryan after carrying out a raid on a Goa-bound cruise ship last week. Seven others were also arrested from the ship.

A Mumbai court on Thursday had refused to extend Aryan’s custody by the NCB before starting a hearing on his bail plea.

Sunil Shetty was the first prominent figure from the Hindi film industry to throw his weight behind Shah Rukh Khan on his son’s arrest. He had told reporters, “When a raid is conducted at a place, many people are taken into custody. We assume that a particular boy must have consumed it (drugs). The process is on. Let’s give that child a breather. Let real reports come out.”

Day later, actor Hrithik Roshan wrote an emotional note asking Aryan to stay strong in the face of a tough time faced by him and his family.
