MUMBAI: After a long hiatus, superstar Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan’s son Aryan Khan returned to Instagram, almost four months after his arrest in a drug seizure case. The star kid took to the photo-sharing application to wish his sister Suhana Khan luck for her acting debut with Zoya Akhtar’s directorial ‘The Archies’. On Sunday, Netflix and filmmaker Zoya Akhtar announced the cast of the film ‘The Archies’ and shared the first look.
Sharing a teaser video of the film, Aryan wrote, “Best of luck baby sister! Go kick some a**.” He also shared a poster of the film and wrote, “Teaser looks awesome everyone looks great. All of you will kill it.”
For the unversed, this is Aryan’s first post on Instagram since his arrest in drugs case last year. The star kid has been maintaining a low profile since last few months. His latest post on Instagram shows that he is quite excited for his little sister who is all set to make a mark in the acting world.
For those unaware, Aryan was arrested on October 2 last year following the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) raids in Mumbai. He was granted bail 25 days after his arrest by the Bombay High Court.
Earlier in the day, Shah Rukh Khan had also penned a sweet note for his daughter. He wrote, “From renting the Archie’s Digest for 25 paise per day from book rental stores to see @zoieakhtar make this come alive on screen….is just incredible. Wishing all the little ones the best as they take their first little steps into the most beautiful of professions.” King Khan also shared a golden piece of advice for his princess and wrote, “And remember @suhanakhan2 you are never going to be perfect….but being yourself is the closest to that. Be kind and giving as an actor….the brickbats and applause is not yours to keep….the part of you that gets left behind on screen will always belong to you….u have come a long way baby….but the road to peoples heart is unending…..stride forth and make as many smile as you can. Now let there be Light….Camera and Action! Signed Another Actor.”
