Shah Rukh Khan’s son, Aryan Khan, was arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau on October 3 following the drug bust on Cordelia Cruises’ Express ship that took place on Saturday night (October 2). In several interviews, SRK has said that he is like a friend to his eldest son and supports him in every life decision. In an old interview, while revealing Aryan’s aspirations to become a filmmaker, the superstar said that he helped his son learn cinematography from renowned cinematographer Ravi Varman.
SHAH RUKH KHAN SAID HE IS FRIENDS WITH ARYAN KHAN
India Today Television has exclusively learnt that Shah Rukh Khan spoke to his son Aryan Khan for 2 minutes after his arrest. Being his eldest son, Aryan Khan is extremely close to SRK. In an earlier interview, Shah Rukh had said that he and Aryan are friends. He had said, “He wants to be a filmmaker. We are friends, so I told him to learn whichever aspects of film he can go and learn… The other day I met (famed cinematographer) Ravi Varman, I told him go and learn camera (work) with him. He has been doing that.”
Talking about his kids joining the film industry, SRK had said, “As actors and filmmakers, my kids, in case they wish to come in, they have to bring something new. They can’t live off the stuff their father has managed to do. It’s important they bring in something new and if I impose myself, they won’t be able to.”
“Let them go and bring in something radical and strange. Wrong, maybe. But it should be newer than what I have been able to give,” the 53-year-old actor had said.
WHEN SRK AND ARYAN DUBBED FOR THE LION KING TOGETHER

“We had seven-eight days of 8 pm-to-6 am time together. We used to go there at 8 and just jam… He used to play the guitar. There was this amazing set of people helping us with the dubbing, so we had a great time,” Shah Rukh had said, adding that it was important for Aryan to understand and familiarise himself with the process of dubbing.
