Bollywood megastar Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan was released from the Arthur Road jail in Mumbai on Saturday. Two days after he was granted bail by the Bombay High Court in a case related to the seizure of drugs on a luxury cruise off the coast of the Maharashtra capital.
Earlier, Aryan was expected to walk out of the prison on Friday evening, but owing to delay in release paperwork, he spent one more night in the jail.
According to media reports, Shah Rukh and his wife Gauri picked up their son at Arthur Road Jail where Aryan has been incarcerated these last few weeks following a drug bust aboard a Goa-bound cruise ship on October 2.
The 23-year-old was granted bail on Thursday by the Bombay High Court in the drugs-on-cruise case but spent another night in jail as his bail papers missed the 5.30pm deadline on Friday. Authorities then confirmed Aryan will be released on Saturday.
Actress Juhi Chawla, Shah Rukh’s co-star in the early days of his film career, signed the Rs100,000 bail bond for Aryan.
