"I beg you, man, please."
Sameer Wankhede, who was responsible for the arrest of Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan, in a high-profile drugs case, has found himself embroiled in a controversy.
Wankhede has been booked under corruption charges, and in a recent development, he has submitted alleged WhatsApp conversations with SRK as evidence to defend himself against the charges.
In these purported WhatsApp exchanges, Shah Rukh is seen pleading with the officer to release his son and expressing his concern about Aryan’s well-being.
Shah Rukh Khan implores the officer to consider the impact of jail time on his son, emphasizing that the experience would break him.
One of the text messages shared with the media by India Today reads:
“But my son is not part of that, please. You also know that. You know his part is minuscule in it.
“All he needs is reformation and for that, he has had his quota and I will also follow suit with what we talked about in terms of making him a better person.”
SRK further reportedly says: “Please man I beg you there is nothing from my side that is a participant in the vested interests.
“I went out of my way and without even knowing them called and begged them not to involve my child in their politics.
“The people here and also the person in the North. I spoke as a father to them and even chided them that they are harming my kid in their selfish interests.”
The text further reads: “Please man don’t make him pay for these assholes and vested people.
“I beg you, man, please. It’s a larger thing – my son and my family I swear play no part in it.
“I have even refrained from talking to anyone and even told all these foolish people not to speak on my behalf.
“When we speak I will tell you what I have done in my capacity not to hurt your drive to be upright. I swear man. Please! Beg you.”
Sameer Wankhede is currently courting controversy as the CBI has accused him in an alleged Rs 25 crore extortion case involving the arrest of actor Shah Rukh Khan's son Aryan Khan.

SRK assures Sameer Wankhede that Aryan would undergo a transformation and become a person they could both be proud of.
The actor expresses his gratitude for the assistance provided by Wankhede and expresses a desire to meet the officer in person, offering a heartfelt hug.
He even applauds Wankhede for his mission, presumably aimed at eradicating drug consumption, and extends his willingness to offer any support possible.
The texts also see SRK asking Wankhede to not break his family’s heart:
“Please don’t break our heart today my man. Please. It’s a father-to-father request.”
“I love my children just like you do yours and exterior forces cannot be allowed to cloud a father-to-father feeling, please.
“I am a kind and gentle person Sameer please don’t let my faith break in you and the system.
“Please it will shatter us as a family. Thank you for trying to help. Extremely grateful forever.”
The alleged text messages are said to be part of Wankhede’s petition submitted in response to the corruption charges levelled against him concerning Aryan’s drugs case.
