Meanwhile, the DDLJ actor spoke with the son through the intercom under surveillance of jail authorities. Khan's visit to his son comes right after Maharashtra jails lifted COVID-induced restrictions around physical meetings.

The NCB raid was conducted by NCB officials after chat messages of Aryan Khan with an ‘upcoming Bollywood actress’ [which was not named by Indian media] was presented before a Mumbai court where officials claimed that the duo was discussing ‘drugs’.

On Wednesday, a Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Court rejected the bail plea of young Khan along with co-accused. Meanwhile, the Bombay High Court scheduled the hearing for October 26.

The Indian agency has also faced heat from several groups. Activists questioned the presence of two people who participated in the cruise bust despite not being members of the drug agency. NCB officials are also alleged for taking up the case with mala fide intentions to frame specific individuals.
