Filmmaker Sanjay Gupta and designer Farah Khan Ali have joined the Bollywood celebrities voicing support for Shah Rukh Khan after his son, Aryan Khan, was arrested following NCB’s raid on a Mumbai cruise ship.

On Sunday, Sanjay wrote in a tweet, “Shahrukh Khan has always been there in his own way for every one that has ever needed help and reached out to him. This I can say for a fact!” In a second tweet, he added, “I am a father. My son is 10-years-old. God forbid, if he has to pay the price for my beliefs, so not fair!”

Farah chimed in, “SRK and family have my support. Always have and always will have my support. Have known them personally too long and know they are good people. I pray all goes well for them.”

Previously, Hrithik Roshan, Ali Fazal among others had called out authorities for ‘mistreating’ Aryan. Fazal had tweeted, “Another brick in the wall – playing out rather loudly in my headphones today,” while Hrithik had written an open letter to Aryan.

The two joined the growing list of people from Bollywood who had come out in support of SRK and Aryan earlier, including his interior designer wife Gauri Khan, filmmakers Zoya Akhtar, Farah Khan, Hansal Mehta, actors Raveena Tandon, Pooja Bhatt, Suchitra Krishnamoorthi, Somy Ali and comedian Johnny Lever among several others.

The Times of India quoted Suneil Shetty as saying, "When a raid is conducted at a place, many people are taken into custody. We assume that a particular boy must have consumed it (drugs). The process is on. Let's give that child a breather. Let real reports come out."

The outlet also shared an excerpt from Swara Bhasker’s posts on Aryan's arrest. “Aryan Khan is not your public elected official. He did not murder anyone. He is not the owner of a port bringing thousands of kilograms of drugs into the country. If he is a drug snorting young man, too bad for him, his health, his dad's reputation and wallet! That's it. There is a police, there is NCB and there is him and his loved ones, nobody except that needs to be worried!” she had shared.
