Readers would recall the harrowing case of drug-trafficking that left the country shocked as many high-profile teenagers were arrested after the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) conducted a raid on a cruise party. Among them was Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan, which further resulted in the star kid being held in custody for three weeks by the Mumbai police. Juhi Chawla, who shares a close association with the Khan family, extended her support by signing the Rs. 1 lakh jail bond to relieve Khan out of custody.
Juhi Chawla opens up on why signing the Rs. 1 lakh bail bond for Aryan Khan in the drug-case felt ‘like the right thing to do’
Although the entire family as well as their closed ones have maintained silence on the incident, recently actress Juhi Chawla recalled those days in an interview with News18 wherein she also opened up about signing the Rs. 1 lakh bond. She said, “We didn’t know it was coming. But when all came down to that moment when I could help, I thought it was the right thing for me to do – to be there for him.”
For the unversed, Shah Rukh Khan and Juhi Chawla have been good friends since their early days in the industry. The couple were one of the most loved jodis onscreen and have given us movies like Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman, Darr, Yess Boss, Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani, among others. They are not only co-stars but also business partners since Juhi and her husband Jay Mehta co-own the IPL team Kolkata Knight Riders.
Talking about professional commitments, while Shah Rukh Khan and Juhi Chawla have not appeared together in a film for a while now, they are busy with their respective ventures. SRK recently made a record-breaking comeback with spy-action entertainer Pathaan, which is to be followed by Jawan and Dunki in the pipeline. Juhi Chawla, last appeared in the Amazon Prime Video 2022 comedy Sharmaji Namkeen, which was the last film of Rishi Kapoor and later, in the web-series for the same OTT platform, Hush Hush.
On the other hand, Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan is expected to make his directorial debut soon.
