Badla actress Taapsee Pannu recently shared her reaction on Aryan Khan’s arrest in the drug case which made a number of headlines this week. Even Aryan’s father Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan was attacked and criticized by netizens after Aryan was arrested by the NCB and sent to judicial custody for consumption of charas.
In an interview with a leading daily, Times of India, Taapsee Pannu talked about Aryan Khan’s arrest which is, at present, a hot topic. Reacting to the same, the veteran actress stated, “That’s a part and parcel of being a public figure. And, that’s a baggage every public figure’s family also carries, whether they like it or not. You have the positives of enjoying a star status and this is the kind of negative that also comes with it. If it’s a family of a big star, you also enjoy the perks of that, right? So, there’s a negative side also that you end up facing.”
Needless to say, people are overly curious about celebrities as well as their families and so every move they make are judged or talked about, sometimes even making headlines. In that context, Bollywood actress Taapsee added, “I think with that kind of stardom level, you’re aware of the scrutiny that’s going to happen. It’s not like ki kahan se aagaya pata nahi chala (I don’t know where they came from). I’m sure they know the kind of repercussions of things that are going to happen. As far as they are ready to go through the legal process, which is the law of the land, you have to go through it.”
Though numerous celebs including Hrithik Roshan, Salman Khan, Karan Johar, Suniel Shetty, Pooja Bhatt and Suchitra Krishnamoorthi (among others) provided a lot of support to Shah Rukh and spoke in favour of the star kid, Taapsee’s reaction to the case was more or less neutral. Neither did she speak in support of anyone nor accused any party of wrongdoing.
