Several members of the Bollywood fraternity took to social media to share their joy over the release of Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan from jail following three weeks in prison. 

Several friends of SRK from the industry posted pictures of the family with hearts in celebration of Aryan’s release after he was taken into custody in a drugs case. The Bollywood superstar’s daughter Suhana Khan posted a celebratory picture of the siblings with their father, captioning the post with a simple and sweet message reading, “I love you.”

Director Karan Johar posted a picture with SRK on his Instagram stories with a heart, with actor Sonam Kapoor sharing a throwback picture of baby Aryan with his mother Gauri, along with a sticker that read, “Finally!” 

Malaika Arora also took to the app to share a picture of the family, writing, “Thank the lord,” in a separate story. 

Singer Mika Singh took to Twitter to share his support for SRK and express his joy over Aryan’s release. He tweeted, “Congratulations to Aryan Khan and to the other accused for getting bail. I’m so happy that it was finally granted, bro SRK Bhagwan ke ghar mein der hai andher nahi. You have contributed hugely to the fraternity. God bless both you and your family.” 

Filmmaker Sanjay Gupta wrote, “I’m very happy that Aryan Khan has gotten bail but also very upset with a system that kept a young man behind bars for more than 25 days for something he never did. That has to change! God bless you and be strong Aryan Khan.”

A tweet was sent out from veteran actor-turned-politician Raj Babbar’s official account, reading, “Beyond the dark nights, the lights of Diwali are ready to greet Aryan. May the Gods be with him as he moves forward. As a father SRK’s composure and remarkable grit shall long be remembered.”

SRK posed with the legal teams working in Aryan’s defense, which was later shared by the law firm. 

Fan’s also found humour in the situation, sharing how invested South Asian mothers have become in the case. A user shared a series of messages from her mother expressing relief over Aryan’s release.

Another user shared an apt Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham meme on how Aryan will be greeted by his mother upon return. 

Aryan, Arbaaz Merchant and Munmum Dhamecha will be released either tomorrow or by Saturday, says Arbaaz's lawyer Amit Desai. All three will be coming out of jail only after the operative part of the order comes tomorrow.

On October 2, Aryan was detained by the NCB for an alleged drug bust on a cruise before the youngster boarded it. He was soon taken into custody and consequently arrested. The 23-year-old was then sent to a 14-day judicial remand.
