Aryan Khan drug case: Educational app stops ads featuring Shah Rukh Khan following criticism | Hindi Film News

An educational app that has Shah Rukh Khan as its brand ambassador, has temporarily suspended ads featuring a Bollywood supermarket as his son Aryan Khan is under the scanner for an alleged drug probe by the Bureau of Narcotics Control (NCB).

Reliable Sources told IANS on Saturday that Byju’s had suspended all ads featuring Shah Rukh Khan, apparently after social media users criticized the edtech company for approving ads featuring the actor, who has been the ambassador of the brand since 2017.

When it arrived, a spokeswoman for the app refused to comment on the matter.

The criticism came in the wake of arrests after a high-drama rave party raid on a Cordelia Cruise ship during a Mumbai-Goa cruise by the NCB on October 2.

In a major setback for Aryan, Shah Rukh’s son, a court in Mumbai on Friday rejected his bail plea, and of two others who were among the 8 arrested.

Additional Metropolitan Chief Magistrate RM Nerlikar denied Aryan, Arbaaz Merchant, and Munmun Dhamecha bail applications, on the grounds of “sustainability”, upholding the claims of the Bureau of Narcotics Management (NCB) legal team.

The developments came a day after the eight accused were sent to judicial custody, and they moved to the regular prisons from the NCB lock-up.
