Aryan Khan, son of Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, was granted bail in the Mumbai cruise ship drugs case by the Bombay High Court on Thursday. Subsequently, celebrations have begun outside the actor’s residence ‘Mannat’. Fans are celebrating the fact that ‘Prince Aryan Khan’ has been granted bail.
A banner was spotted outside Mannat that said ‘Welcome home Prince Aryan’. The banner has attracted severe mockery from people on social media. Users do not appear to have much good to say about the celebrations that have ensued over the bail, and especially, the banner.
One user rued the time that was invested in making the banner.
If you ever feel jobless remember that there are people who put in efforts to not just hold it outside Khan’s home but also to design and print it in the first place. #AryanKhanBail pic.twitter.com/I1Na6JySqf— Param Dane (@DaneParam) October 28, 2021
Others commented that the banner was reflective of an unemployment crisis in the country.

Netizens question hypocrisy over firecrackers after Shah Rukh Khan fans burst crackers to celebrate bail for Aryan Khan
However, most users were incensed over the fact that firecrackers are discouraged and banned during Diwali but bail celebrations for Aryan Khan used firecrackers in abundant measure. People questioned the blatant duplicity in the manner in which the ban on firecrackers is imposed.
Now I’m absolutely bursting crackers on Diwali !! Law da rules !! https://t.co/wzcMUAnAR6— Yo Yo Funny Singh 🇮🇳 (@moronhumor) October 28, 2021
Others said that it would have been better if Aryan Khan was released during Diwali so that Hindus could use the excuse to burst firecrackers.
Maybe govt could have released him close to Diwali. That was Hindus could find some room to celebrate their festival under the guise of celebrating Aryans release, with some oxygen emitting crackers. At least this much can be done for Hindus. https://t.co/YJsAOPOP5Z— * (@BhagwaanUvacha) October 28, 2021
Some said that the firecrackers have ‘secular’ immunity.
These Firecrackers have Secular Immunity… https://t.co/MJD8XoipTP— Vikantovsa (@omgavcos) October 28, 2021
Aryan Khan, Arbaz and Dhamecha were arrested by NCB on October 3, following a raid on the cruise ship Cordelia in Mumbai by the bureau on October 2. After the bail order was granted, former Advocate General Mukul Rohatgi, who had appeared for Aryan, stated that the formal order of the HC will be given on Friday, October 29.
