The criticism came following arrests after a dramatic raid on the cruise ship Cordelia during the NCB’s Mumbai-Goa voyage on October 2. On October 7, a Mumbai court rejected his bail plea, and two others who were among the 8 people arrested. Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate RM Nerlikar rejected bail applications for Aryan, Arbaaz Merchant and Munmun Dhamecha, on ‘maintainability’ grounds, confirming claims by the Narcotics Control Bureau’s legal team .
Meanwhile, celebrities like Salman Khan, Hrithik Roshan, Farah Khan, Pooja Bhatt, and Raveena Tandon, among others, have lent their support to Shah Rukh and Gauri Khan during these testing times. Aryan is currently in 14-day police custody while his legal team has moved the session court and his bail hearing will likely take place on Monday, October 11.
