'SRK had tears of joy': Mukul Rohatgi who fought for Aryan Khan's bail
Mumbai/IBNS: Superstar Shah Rukh Khan had "tears of joy in his eyes" when he was given the news of bail for his son, Aryan Khan, arrested earlier this month in connection with the drugs-on-cruise case, India's former Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi, who represented him in the Bombay High Court, said.
"He has been very, very worried the last three-four days that I was there and I'm not even sure whether he had proper meals. He was just having coffee after coffee. And he was very, very worried. And I could see a big sense of relief, yeah, on the father's face last time I met him," Rohatgi told NDTV in an exclusive interview.
Aryan Khan has been finally granted bail after over three weeks in jail by the Bombay High Court.
The 23-year-old has been in custody since Oct 3, after the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) officials raided a rave party on a cruise ship.
He had been lodged in Mumbai's Arthur Road jail since Oct 8 and denied bail twice before.
His counsels had repeatedly argued that no drugs had been found on him.
NCB contended that he was part of illicit drug dealings revealed by his WhatsApp chats.
Shah Rukh and Gauri Khan had not attended the hearings. But after his bail was refused the last time, Khan went to meet Aryan at Mumbai's Arthur Road jail on Oct 21.
