As Shah Rukh Khan visited Aryan Thursday, it led to a rush to capture his images, After the visuals from the site went viral on social media, filmmaker Hansal Mehta shared on Twitter, “Being a celebrity, being a star, being from ‘Bollywood’ means your emotion, your torment and your concern as a father become a matter of public consumption, heartless abuse and ruthless judgement.”

He further mentioned, “Bollywood is not a place, not a company and definitely not some mafia. It is a loosely coined term for a large number of individuals who work really hard to create, to entertain, to engage and unlike many other professions are always vulnerable to criticism, scrutiny and abuse.”

“I don’t know or have never appreciated the term Bollywood. What I do know is that this term and the individuals connected to it are a favourite punching pag and diversionary vehicle for a few divisive, abusive and inefficient set of some cowardly invisible people,” concluded Mehta.

After Aryan Khan’s arrest on October 3, many celebrities including Hrithik Roshan, Twinkle Khanna, Reema Kagti, Pooja Bhatt, Zoya Akhtar among others have supported Shah Rukh Khan.
