Mumbai: Twelve days after his arrest in a drug case, Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan was allowed to make a video call from the jail phone to his parents. Jail sources informed that, "Aryan spoke with his mother Gauri Khan and his father. It was a formal call where they asked him about his well-being. Reportedly, Aryan spoke to SRK and Gauri for 10 minutes according to reports.

The video call facility was introduced by jail authorities during the pandemic last year for inmates to communicate with their families and lawyers.

Meanwhile, Aryan was shifted from Arthur Road jail’s quarantine cell to a regular barrack, after he tested negative for COVID-19 and the star kid has been allotted prisoner number is N956.

According to reports, Aryan seems disturbed, tense and uncomfortable in jail and has been kept in a separate barrack from the other inmates for security reasons.

Aryan was denied home food and is eating the jail meal like other inmates. In keeping with the jail manual, Aryan received a money order of Rs 4,500 each from his parents. He can use the cash to buy snacks, juice, and other food items from the jail canteen."

Earlier on Thursday, in a huge setback to Aryan Khan, a Mumbai special NDPS court reserved its order on his and other co-accused's bail applications till October 20, even as the NCB virtually labelled him a 'junkie' regularly consuming drugs.

Aryan and other co-accused Arbaaz Merchant and Munmun Dhamecha will remain in judicial custody at the Arthur Road Central Jail and the Byculla Women's Jail for the next five days on account of public holidays over the next few days.
