It was almost a given that Gauri Khan’s appearance in Koffee with Karan 7’s latest episode would touch upon the topic of her and Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan’s arrest in connection with an alleged drug bust by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) last year.
Host and director Karan Johar subtly brought up the topic in the episode in which Gauri was accompanied by Maheep Kapoor and Bhavana Pandey, by saying that it was “a tough ride” for Aryan and the incident had made Gauri “stronger than ever”.
Aryan was arrested last year aboard a cruise ship and had spent 25 days in jail, before he was granted bail. In May 2022, he was cleared of all charges “due to lack of evidence” as per the charge sheet filed by NCB.
Addressing Aryan’s arrest, Gauri said that “nothing can be worse” than what the family has been through. “But where we all stand as a family, I can say that we are in a great space,” she explained, adding that they feel blessed and grateful for the messages and support they received throughout the ordeal.
The interior designer also brought up Aryan’s name again during the episode, which is currently available to stream on Disney+ Hotstar, saying that the youngster is her “fashion police” and doesn’t allow her to wear full sleeve shirts or jackets.
Meanwhile, Aryan is rumoured to be developing a web series that revolves around a fictional depiction of Bollywood. The show, which will reportedly have him in the capacity as a showrunner and not a director, will be a lighthearted look at the ups and downs of stardom and is expected to go on floors next year. In May, the 24-year-old left for the US to begin work on the web series, which will feature several young talents from Bollywood.
