Mumbai: Amidst superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan’s arrest in an alleged drug case by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB), actor Hrithik Roshan has extended his support to the 23-year-old. Taking to Instagram, Hrithik penned a lengthy post asking Aryan to be strong as he feels “God gives toughest ones the toughest balls to play. My dear Aryan…Life is a strange ride. It’s great because it’s uncertain. It’s great cause it throws you curve balls, but god is kind. He gives only the toughest ones the toughest balls to play. You know you are chosen when amidst the chaos you can feel the pressure to hold your own. And I know you must feel it now,” he added.
An NCB team busted an alleged drugs party on the Cordelia Cruise ship which was on its way to Goa at mid-sea on October 2 night.
