Will work for poor, Aryan Khan tells NCB officials in jail


Guwahati: Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan assured the Narcotics Control Bureau officials during counselling that he would work for the welfare of the poor and never do anything that would tarnish his name in the future, an official said on Saturday.

Aryan (23) is currently lodged in Arthur Road prison here after he was arrested by the NCB following alleged drug seizure from a cruise ship off the Mumbai coast on October 2.

During counselling by the officials including NCB’s zonal director Sameer Wankhede and social workers, Aryan said after his release, he will work for “social and financial uplift of the poor and downtrodden” and never do anything which could bring him publicity for the wrong reasons, said an agency official.

“He said ‘I will do something that will make you proud of me’,” the official added.

A special court for Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act cases would pass order on his bail plea on October 20.
