Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s 23-year-old son Aryan Khan was detained and questioned after the NCB raided and detained a few other people from a cruise ship, just off the coast of Mumbai.
Suniel Shetty came out in support of Aryan Khan, saying that people must not come down on the star kid as investigations are still going on and it’s too early to jump to a conclusion. He said at an event, “I would like to say that wherever there is a raid, several people are caught. And we assume that this child must have consumed drugs or this child must have done it. But the proceedings are on, let’s give that child a breather”
The actor had further stated, “Whenever something happens in Bollywood, the media scrutinises everything and jumps to conclusions. Give the child an opportunity. Let the real reports come out. Baccha hai (He’s a kid). Taking care of him is our responsibility”.

23 year old kid? KID?
So you saying something wrong? He never reached adolescence and maturity? Why was the kid out without parents at night?

More over when these Bollywood actors are lecturing society about our customs and festivals then no one reminds them their boundaries. When they need to have their house in order they start defending each other.

22-23 is an adult normally, but is a child when it comes to celebrities, politicians, activists.
