Aryan Khan's case has created headlines everywhere. The major spotlight has fallen on his bail being denied. It was on October 3 when Aryan was arrested from a cruise party that was raided by Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB). It looks like it is not the first time that Sameer the director of the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) had a brush with Shah Rukh Khan in Mumbai after SRK's son got arrested.

Reportedly, more than a decade ago, in 2011, the actor had stopped Shah Rukh at Mumbai airport and had made him pay customs duty. Reports online state that when Shah Rukh had landed in the city after completing his  Holland and London trip, Wankhede had stopped him and had questioned him for not declaring foreign items that attract duty. Wankhede at that time was the assistant commissioner of customs at Mumbai airport.
