Aryan Khan walks out of jail

Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan walked out of Mumbai's high-security Arthur Road prison to a rapturous welcome on Saturday morning, more than three weeks after his arrest in a cruise-on-drugs case, report agencies.

Aryan was received outside the jail gate by none other than his father, and greeted by thousands of Shah Rukh's fans. He had been in judicial custody since October 8.

The 23-year-old and his two friends -- Arbaz Merchant and Mummun Dhamecha -- were granted bail by the High Court in Mumbai on Thursday, as Shah Rukh roped in some of India's top legal minds to argue for bail for Aryan in the drugs case.

On Friday afternoon, Bollywood actress Juhi Chawla, Shah Rukh's close friend and co-star in many movies, went to the sessions court in Mumbai and signed Aryan's bail bond of Indian rupees one lakh.
