In the morning, superstar Shah Rukh Khan met his son Aryan Khan who is lodged at Mumbai's Arthur Road Jail. Aryan became very emotional after seeing his father, who consoled him saying everything will be fine as the matter is in High Court now. According to jail authorities, the accused were not allowed to have visitors earlier in the wake of the Covid-19 but the restrictions were eased starting today. The prison authorities started allowing the family members of prisoners to visit them from Thursday morning. Heavy police security was also deployed outside the jail premises.

Shah Rukh Khan left after spending 20 minutes with his son. In the wake of the COVID-19, the visitors are restricted from having any physical contact with the jail inmates and thus, Shah Rukh met son Aryan through a glass wall and talked to him through an intercom.
Meanwhile, Aryan Khan, Arbaaz Merchant and fashion model Munmun Dhamecha's bail plea was rejected by a special NDPS court in Mumbai on Wednesday afternoon (October 20). His advocates then immediately filed an appeal in the HC, challenging the lower court's order. The appeal is likely to be mentioned by Aryan Khan's lawyers before a single bench of Justice N W Sambre.
