Gauri Khan’s diktat: No kheer in Mannat till Aryan gets bail

With Aryan Khan’s bail hearing coming up on October 20, Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri are hopeful that there is a respite for their son and that he will be out of custody before Diwali. It has been a tough period for Aryan’s parents and the entire family ever since the drama started after the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) arrested him on October 3. What seemed like an early release on bail, soon turned into a nightmare for one of Bollywood’s biggest families.

An insider reveals that the mood at Mannat has been gloomy and sombre. Despite the festivities outside, Shah Rukh and Gauri have clearly been in no mood to celebrate. Mannat, which has often been decorated and lit up for festivals like Eid and Diwali, now looks like it’s expecting to hear some good news so that the lights can go up just in time for Diwali. IndiaToday.in had earlier revealed how Gauri had kept fasts and a special mannat for her son during Navratri. Apart from that, Gauri Khan has also issued a diktat to her staff that no sweets will be cooked in the kitchen until Aryan Khan’s release. An insider tells IndiaToday.in that there was an incident where she found that the staff was cooking kheer on one of the lunch menus. Gauri immediately put a stop to it and instructed the staff that there will be no sweets cooked in the Mannat kitchen until her son Aryan is out.

The insider reveals, “Like any mother, Gauri too is extremely disturbed and upset with Aryan’s arrest. From her end, she’s doing all that she can, getting help from her friends and well-wishers. In all the calls made to her, her message has been the same — ‘Please pray for my son’. Even though she’s not highly religious, Gauri has taken to praying day-in and day-out to seek help from the divine for Aryan’s release.”

To avoid creating chaos and bring attention to Mannat, Shah Rukh has even requested his friends and well-wishers to avoid making trips to Mannat. The insider adds, “SRK is on the phone with all his co-stars and industry friends, and has been a solid pillar of strength for his entire family. He firmly believes in letting the law take its course and in all his conversations, he has maintained that he will cooperate in whatever way is required in Aryan’s hearing and inquiry. ‘This too shall pass’ is a line he’s often heard saying to his friends.”

The NCB arrested Aryan Khan after they conducted a raid on the Cordelia Cruises’ Empress ship off the Mumbai coast on October 2. A rave party allegedly took place on the ship and Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s son was on board.
