Hrithik Roshan's Note: 'Own It' Dedicated to Aryan Khan

Shah Rukh Khan's son Aryan Khan, who was arrested over the weekend during a drugs raid on a cruise liner, received an emotional email from actor Hrithik Roshan today encouraging him to "own whatever you experience." The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) arrested Aryan Khan, 23, and seven others on Monday.

"I've known you as a kid and I've known you as a man. Own it. Own everything you experience. They are your gifts. Trust me. In time when you connect the dots... I promise you, It's gonna make sense," Hrithik Roshan wrote in the note posted on Instagram, along with a photo of Aryan.

The Khans have gotten support from pals in the profession, including Salman Khan and Sussanne Khan (Hrithik Roshan's ex-wife), in recent days. Sussanne Khan posted on Instagram that Salman Khan was at the "wrong place at the wrong time" when he visited SRK hours after Aryan's arrest.


"When you feel the urge to hold your own in the middle of chaos, you know you've been selected. And I'm sure you're feeling it right now. Anger, befuddlement, and helplessness. Aaah, the same ingredients required to extinguish the hero within you, "Hrithik Roshan penned the script.

"You must go through the dark. Calm, still, owning your own. And trusting the light. Within. It's always there," Hrithik Roshan signed off the note adding, "Love you, man." A Mumbai judge denied Aryan bail on Monday and ordered him to remain in detention until Thursday, despite his lawyer arguing in court that he was a special invitee to the cruise ship and thus "cannot be brought in with the entire seizure in the case." 

The NCB apprehended Aryan Khan after officials dressed in disguise invaded a rave party on the Cordelia Cruise ship, which was its route to Goa. The raids yielded 13 grammes of cocaine, 21 grammes of charas, 22 pills of MDMA, and 5 grammes of MD, according to the anti-drugs department. Aryan Khan was confirmed to be drug-free, but his WhatsApp communications were found to be incriminating, according to the anti-drugs agency.
