Evidently, Aryan has represented his father during the IPL auction 2021. However, this is the first time that Suhana was present at an IPL auction.
First Appearance Since Drug Raids In October
This is the first public appearance of Aryan Khan since his arrest in October 2021 in a drug bust case. The star kid was in jail for over a month. He was subsequently released on bail.
Since the drug case, Shahrukh Khan has been keeping a low profile on social media. Moreover, the star has also been absent from public events.
However, SRK was present during the cremation ritual of legendary singer, Lata Mangeshkar.
Moreover, this also marks Suhana’s first public appearance since her brother’s bail. Soon to make her Bollywood debut, the star kid has recently returned from New York after pursuing her higher studies.
During last year’s IPL Pre-Auction, Juhi Chawla had shared a photo of Jhanvi and Aryan sitting at the auction table. She captioned the photo, “So happy to see both the KKR kids, Aryan and Jhanvi at the Auction Table.”
