Actor Shah Rukh Khan had sent money for his son’s expenses at the jail canteen, reported a news agency in India.

In the report, the superintendent confirmed receiving money order of Rs4,500 (RM250) from Aryan’s family on Oct 11 – which is the maximum amount a prisoner can receive for their expenses inside a prison.

Aryan Khan is currently placed at the Arthur Road jail in Mumbai, India, in connection with an alleged seizure of banned drugs during a cruise ship drug raid case earlier this month.

The 23-year-old was arrested along with five others during the raid at a party on a cruise ship off the Mumbai coast on Oct 2, and was later transferred to the Mumbai jail.

On Oct 8, Aryan and two others sought bail from the court. However, India’s Narcotics Control Bureau’s lawyer is opposing Aryan’s bail plea as the latter is said to be a regular consumer of drugs for the last few years.

The next hearing of his bail plea is said to be on Oct 20.

Twelve days after his arrest, Aryan got to speak with his father and mother, Gauri Khan, through a video call which lasted for 10 minutes.

His parents had sent him the canteen expenses as Aryan didn’t like the food served at the prison. But he’s not allowed to have any outside food either.

One news portal reported that with the money, Aryan can buy food from prison’s canteen menu which includes bread, panyachi batli, vadapav, bhajipav, namkeen, samosa, chicken thali, egg thali, mineral water and juice.
