Bhavana Panday, and Maheep Kapoor currently enjoy unfathomable popularity thanks to their appearance on the hugely popular Netflix show, Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives. And now, fans can see them get up, close, and personal on the finale episode of Koffee With Karan Season 7, alongside Gauri Khan. With the ladies on the couch, it was obvious that the show was going to be a heady mix of gossip and explosive revelations. While things did get heated up, Kjo touched upon a rather sensitive topic– Aryan Khan’s arrest.
Dropping subtle hints about the incident, the filmmaker host told Khan, “It’s been such a tough time for (Shah Rukh Khan) not just professionally but recently with everything the family went through personally. You all have emerged so strongly. As a family. I know it hasn’t been easy. I know you as a mother and him as a father, and all of us like we’re members of the same family. I feel like I’m your children’s Godparent as well. It hasn’t been easy but Gauri I’ve seen you come out even stronger. What do you have to say about your own way of handling tough times, when families go through something like that.”
The star wife/producer, however, was gracious enough to answer Johar. She said, “Yes, as a family, we’ve been through… I think nothing can be worse than what we’ve just been through, obviously, as
a mother, and as a parent. But today where we stand as a family, I can say that we are in a great space where we feel loved by everyone.”
She further added, “And all our friends, and so many people who we did not know. So many messages and so much love and I just feel blessed. And I would say I’m grateful to all the people who have helped us through this.”
For the unversed, Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan’s son was arrested by the Mumbai police after a drug raid bust on a ship that was headed to Goa. Khan, along with two others, were taken into custody and put in jail. After a month of investigation, Aryan Khan was cleared of all the accusations.
