‘Nothing Can Be Worse Than What We’ve Just Been Through,’ Says Gauri Khan Recalling Son Aryan’s Arrest Last Year
New Delhi: Superstar Shah Rukh Khan and his wife Gauri Khan went through a harrowing time last year, when their son Aryan Khan was arrested in a drugs case by the Narcotic Control Bureau (NCB) after a raid on a cruise ship. He got a clean chit from the NCB this year. The probe agency didn’t name him as an accused. The couple kept a stoic and dignified silence throughout his one-month stay in the prison.
Recently on Karan Johar’s chat show Koffee With Karan, Gauri Khan spoke about the tough times that the family had to go through post son Aryan’s arrest.
“It’s been such a tough time for (Shah Rukh Khan) not just professionally but recently with everything the family went through personally. You all have emerged so strongly. As a family. I know it hasn’t been easy. I know you as a mother and him as a father, and all of us like we’re members of the same family. I feel like I’m your children’s Godparent as well. It hasn’t been easy but Gauri I’ve seen you come out even stronger. What do you have to say about your own way of handling tough times, when families go through something like that,” asked Karan.
This is what Gauri said: speaking about the situation, told Karan Johar: “Yes, as a family, we’ve been through… I think nothing can be worse than what we’ve just been through, obviously, as a mother, as a parent. But today where we stand as a family, I can say that we are in a great space where we feel loved by everyone.”
Gauri Khan added, “And all our friends, and so many people who we did not know. So many messages and so much of love and I just feel blessed. And I would say I’m grateful to all the people who have helped us through this.”
