‘It’s a Baggage Every Big Star’s Family Carries:’ Taapsee Pannu On Aryan Khan’s Arrest
Mumbai: Among many other Bollywood stars who have come out in support of Shah Rukh Khan and his son, Aryan Khan, is ‘Rashmi Rocket’ actress Taapsee Pannu.
Being part of “a big star’s family” comes with its baggage, she said.
Speaking about the case in an interview with ETimes, Taapsee said, “That’s a part and parcel of being a public figure. And, that’s a baggage every public figure’s family also carries, whether they like it or not. You have the positives of enjoying a star status and this is the kind of negative that also comes with it. If it’s a family of a big star, you also enjoy the perks of that, right? So, there’s a negative side also that you end up facing.”
“As far as you’re prepared to face the consequences after going through the trial officially, you know you don’t really have to bother. I think with that kind of stardom level, you’re aware of the scrutiny that’s going to happen,” Taapsee added.
Others like Hrithik Roshan, Alia Bhatt, Sussanne Khan, Suchitra Krishnamoorthi, Pooja Bhatt and Hansal Mehta have also come out in support of Shah Rukh and his son Aryan. The hashtag ‘Release Aryan Khan’ started to trend on Twitter with netizens extending their support to SRK and Aryan. Images of fans crowding outside SRK’s Mumbai home Mannat went viral on social media. Many also put up messages outside his residence and on social media extending support to the family and to Aryan.
