Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan’s son arrested

The son of Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan was arrested by Indian police over a drug raid on a cruise ship off Mumbai. Aryan Khan, 23, and seven others were arrested after undercover officers of the Narcotics Control Bureau raided the Cordelia on Saturday as it sailed towards Goa. The vessel was allowed to continue the journey after the eight accused were taken ashore and detained. The drug bust comes as another shock for the Indian film industry, which is reeling from allegations of widespread drug abuse. Several Bollywood A-listers, including directors and actors, have faced allegations of drug abuse and hosting rave parties. Shah Rukh Khan, 55, is one of the biggest film stars in India and has remained a largely non-controversial figure in his three decades of public life.

The industry was rocked last year by the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput, who allegedly committed suicide following a history of drug abuse. Police had arrested his girlfriend, actress Rhea Chakraborty over alleged drug possession. The shocking death led to calls for a crackdown on drug abuse in the film industry and led to several top actresses being questioned, including Deepika Padukone, Sara Ali Khan and Shraddha Kapoor.
