More fans of Shah Rukh voiced their support on the post. "From Nepal . No matter what #sharukhkhan you have our support and love," wrote one. "Every parent in any place and corner of the world, rich or poor is always just a parent! Our hearts always hurt for our children. Support is crucial and very important. And for the parents, SRK and Gauri, and for Aryan himself, it is important to know. We stand for them," read another.
Earlier, Shah Rukh's film industry friends also voiced their support for him. His Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa co-star Suchitra Krishnamoorthi said in a tweet, "Nothing harder for a parent than seeing their child in distress. Prayers to all." In a follow-up tweet, she added, "For all those targeting #Bollywood remember all the #NCB raids on film stars? Yes nothing was found and nothing was proved. #Bollywood gawking is a tamasha. It's the price of fame."
Speaking to India Today, his friend Viveck Vaswani said, "Shah Rukh is a celebrity. He and his family and his children will always be targeted by those who are apathetic towards the stardom. This too shall pass." Pooja Bhatt and Sussanne Khan have also defended Aryan Khan online.
