About Aryan Khan’s case
Aryan Khan hit the headlines in October last year for the wrong reason. The superstar’s son was arrested and kept in custody in the drug case. He was arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) from a cruise ship off the Mumbai coast in October 2021 on the allegation of drug consumption. He was kept at Mumbai’s Arthur Road Jail for 22 days.
However, Aryan was declared clean of all charges due to the lack of sufficient evidence in the drug case for which he spent more than 20 days in custody. He walked out of jail once the paperwork was complete. According to Arbaaz Merchant’s statement, who was also arrested in the drug case stated Aryan did not have drugs on him besides asking Arbaaz not to carry any of them.
Aryan is a graduate of Fine Arts, Cinematic Arts, and Television Production from the School of Cinematic Arts at the University of Southern California in the United States. He did his schooling in the United Kingdom and Mumbai. He has two siblings, sister Suhana and brother AbRam.
