Hansal Mehta reacts on Shah Rukh Khan meeting son Aryan Khan in jail

Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan are having the worst days of their lives after their elder son Aryan Khan was denied bail yet again in the drug case. Now, on the morning of October 21, the distressed father went to meet his son in jail and the videos of King Khan entering and exiting the jail premises surfaced all over the internet. Many fans and colleagues also extended their support to their 'Badshaah' and asked him to stay strong. Meanwhile, filmmaker Hansal Mehta also took to Twitter where he opened up on what it means to be a celebrity as well as a father at the same time. He wrote, 'Being a celebrity, being a star, being from ‘Bollywood’ means your emotion, your torment and your concern as a father become a matter of public consumption, heartless abuse and ruthless judgement.' He further added, 'Bollywood is not a place, not a company and definitely not some mafia. It is a loosely coined term for a large number of individuals who work really hard to create, to entertain, to engage and unlike many other professions are always vulnerable to criticism, scrutiny and abuse.' In another tweet he wrote, 'I don’t know or have never appreciated the term Bollywood. What I do know is that this term and the individuals connected to it are a favourite punching pag and diversionary vehicle for a few divisive, abusive and inefficient set of some cowardly invisible people.'

On the sidelines of an event, when Javed saab was asked if he feels that Bollywood is being routinely targeted with raids, he had said, "This is the price the film industry has to pay for being high profile. When you're high profile, people have fun pulling you down, throwing muck at you. If you're a nobody, then who has the time to throw stones at you?" Taking an indirect dig at the seizure of a huge quantity of drugs at Mundra port in Gujarat's Kutch district, Javed Akhtar further said, "You find cocaine worth Rs one billion dollar at a port, somewhere else there were 1200 people where ganja and a total sum of Rs 1 lakh 30 thousand is found, according to media reports.' He further added, "Now this has become a big national news but I haven't seen any headline on the billion dollar cocaine..."
