The industry and fans were shocked as news trickled in from Saturday night that the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) has nabbed Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan in a drugs case from a cruise. Although he was not caught consuming or possessing any narcotics substance, the NCB sought his one-day custody. Some time back, it was reported that a Mumbai court have been remanded to NCB custody till October 7.
Shah Rukh Khan naturally is distraught over these developments and has cancelled the shoot of his untitled next, directed by South director Atlee.
The actor reportedly decided to not travel to Spain for the next schedule of Pathan on October 7. But there is one man who’s trying to make up for SRK’s absence and ensuring the shoots go as per schedule as much as possible. Prashant Walde, Shah Rukh Khan’s body double has a striking resemblance to the superstar and as per reports Shah Rukh Khan shot for Atlee’s film on Saturday at South Mumbai’s B D Petit Parsee General Hospital till around 9:00 pm.
Prashant Walde confirmed that he did shoot in Shah Rukh’s absence on Sunday. He also told this writer, “20 days of shoot is over. Around 180 days of shoot is still left.”
He was also asked if he would be going in stead of Shah Rukh to Spain he replied with, “I can’t comment. We get to know the schedule one night before. So I can’t tell you exactly.”
He also said, “Bollywood ko chalane mein kuch logon hi haath hai. Ek insaan ki wajah se hazaaron logon ka ghar chalta hai. So its obvious that if he (Shah Rukh Khan) doesn’t work, then so many people will get affected. With great difficultly, things have come on track after the lockdown and now this problem has erupted.” As he hopes this crisis gets over soon.
Prashant reaction to the negativity around Shah Rukh Khan over this episode was,“The public doesn’t want to focus on the good deeds of Shah Rukh Khan. He played a major role in vaccinating so many people industry people and even their family members.”
