Shah Rukh Khan reaches Arthur Road Jail to meet Aryan
A day after a Special NDPS (Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances) Court rejected the bail plea of Aryan Khan, his superstar father Shah Rukh Khan reached Arthur Road Jail to meet him. This is the first time the actor has visited his son in prison. Notably, the 23-year-old is currently lodged at the central Mumbai prison in connection with the Cordelia Cruises drug case.
The star visited the jail in casual grey tee
According to news agency ANI, Bollywood's King Khan was seen in front of the jail on Thursday around 9:19 am. Media captures show SRK donning a grey casual tee and a black face mask. His current long hairstyle is securely tucked in a bun. To recall, Khan temporarily pulled breaks on the shooting schedule of his upcoming venture Pathan recently.

Khan was supposed to be in Spain for 'Pathan' shoot
As we reported earlier, the Zero star was supposed to fly to Spain for the next leg of the shoot and the film's director Siddharth Anand was already there on October 2, the day when Aryan was detained by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) following a surprise raid on the Goa-bound cruise ship. Reportedly, Anand promptly came back after learning about the case.
Aryan's bail plea will be next heard on October 26
Now coming to the case, Aryan moved the Bombay High Court yesterday following his bail plea rejection and the matter was heard today. Justice NW Sambre said the bail application will be heard on Tuesday (October 26). VV Patil had previously refused bail for the star kid as "there are [no] reasonable grounds for believing that the accused are not guilty of such offense."
Aryan's chats show he was 'dealing in illicit drug activities'
Yesterday, the special court observed that WhatsApp chats of Aryan prima facie (or "on the face of it") show that he was "dealing in illicit drug activities on a regular basis." Thus, it cannot be said he will not commit similar offenses if granted bail. This is the fifth time Aryan has been denied bail. Stay tuned for updates in the case.
