"Was Aryan the only one roaming around"
Mika Singh has reacted to Aryan Khan’s arrest in a unique way.
The son of Shah Rukh Khan and seven others were arrested following a raid on a cruise ship.
Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) officials seized a number of drugs on the ship and questioned Aryan on the matter before arresting him.
The 23-year-old was subsequently produced before the court.
Celebrities from the Indian entertainment industry have extended their support to the Khan family. They have also questioned the NCB for arresting Aryan.
Singer Mika Singh offered his support, sharing a sarcastic response to Aryan’s arrest.
He tweeted a picture of the Cordelia Cruise ship, which was raided by the NCB and wrote:
“Wow, what a beautiful @CordeliaCruises I wish I could have visited.
“I heard lots of people were there but I couldn’t see anyone else except #AaryanKhan.
“Was Aryan the only one roaming around on the cruise?
“Good morning, have a wonderful day.”

Other celebrities have also offered their support to the Khan family.
Hours after Aryan was arrested, Salman Khan visited Shah Rukh Khan’s home.
Sussanne Khan, a close friend of the family, stated that she stands by the family.
Calling Aryan a “good kid”, Sussanne wrote:
“I think this is not about Aryan Khan, as he was unfortunately at the wrong place at the wrong time.
“This situation is being made an example to drive home.
“The excitement that some people get as they have a witch hunt on people from Bollywood.
“It’s sad and unfair as he is a good kid. I stand by Gauri and Shah Rukh.”
Suniel Shetty had also reacted to the NCB questioning Aryan. He said:
“These are mere speculations. I think no such reports have come from anywhere.
“Unfortunately, Bollywood’s name is always dragged into such things. I think we have seen many such instances and we have managed it well.
“So, we pray that everything is good and let’s not speculate.”
“The fact is, whenever there’s a raid, many people are taken. We assume that this child has consumed something, or this child has done that.
“The investigation is underway. Let’s give that child a breather.”
Other celebrities who expressed their support include Pooja Bhatt and Hansal Mehta.
On October 4, 2021, the NCB alleged that “shocking and incriminating” material had been recovered in WhatsApp exchanges between Aryan and two others.
They claimed the messages implied international drug trafficking.
Aryan and the other suspects have been remanded in custody until October 7, 2021.
The NCB also claimed that in the WhatsApp chats, Aryan discusses the types of payment for the procurement of drugs, using several code words.
However, Aryan’s lawyer has said that no drugs had been recovered from his client’s possession.
