Son of superstar Shah Rukh Khan, Aryan Khan is set to walk out of a Mumbai jail on Saturday after nearly four weeks when he was arrested in a Mumbai cruise on drugs case. He was granted bail by the Bombay High Court on Thursday but have to spend another night in jail as his bail papers missed the 5:30 pm deadline on Friday.
Shah Rukh Khan was seen leaving Mannat to reach Arthur Road Jail to bring back his son home.
On Friday, Aryan Khan's lawyers rushed to make it to the Arthur Road jail and deposit the documents in the "bail box" that is opened four times in a day – at 5.30 am, 10.30 am, 3.30 pm and 5.30 pm. They missed the time window narrowly.
Earlier this morning, jail officials were seen opening the bail box, setting off the process for the star son's release.
Former Attorney General of India, Mukul Rohatgi fought for Aryan Khan's bail in the High Court for three days.
Actor Juhi Chawla, Shah Rukh Khan's co-star in the early days of his film career, signed the Rs 1 lakh bail bond for Aryan Khan, reported NDTV.
That step was necessary for the Mumbai sessions court to sign the release papers that were to be sent directly to the prison, the report said.
