On October 28, after about three weeks, Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan was granted bail by the Bombay High Court. Shah Rukh Khan was visibly relieved and was in tears, as Aryan’s lawyer Mukul Rohatgi said. Shah Rukh was even seen posing with his legal team and manager Pooja Dadlani in the first pics since the bail news broke. At a time like this, several of SRK’s industry friends and colleagues reached out to him to congratulate him. Among them were Akshay Kumar, Salman Khan and Suniel Shetty.

While Salman has already visited SRK thrice in Mannat, SRK’s other friends have constantly been in touch with him over the phone. The same is the case with Gauri, who has been on calls with her friends constantly to help her through these trying times. Last evening, October 28, as soon as the news of Aryan Khan being granted bail broke, SRK received congratulatory calls from many of his industry friends. A friend close to the family told IndiaToday.in, “SRK got calls from everyone from Salman Khan, Suniel Shetty, Akshay Kumar. Gauri was heard crying on the phone to her friends Maheep Kapoor and Seema Khan, who have been with her daily on the phone giving support. Gauri broke down as soon as the text came in regarding the bail. She was in tears and was seen falling on her knees and praying. Suhana Khan spoke to Aryan’s friends in the US and UK and thanked them for their support in the last few weeks.”

An insider told IndiaToday,in earlier that Shah Rukh Khan had been staying elsewhere for quite some time now, especially after the Aryan Khan case started attracting fans and the paparazzi outside Mannat. Aryan Khan was placed under the Narcotics Control Bureau’s custody on October 3, and later sent to judicial custody on October 8. Amid all this, fans had gathered outside Mannat to support SRK and Aryan. An insider tells IndiaToday.in, “It seems SRK was concerned about the law and order situation, and to avoid that, he decided to check into Trident in Mumbai. In fact, he has not been using his usual car either. SRK is currently commuting in a Hyundai Creta instead of his usual BMW.”

This doesn’t come as a surprise as IndiaToday.in had earlier reported how SRK had requested his friends to land up at Mannat to ensure security.
