Earlier, Shah Rukh Khan was spotted leaving his Mumbai residence Mannat for Arthur Road jail to receive Aryan, who has been in custody for over three weeks following his arrest after a drug-bust raid off Mumbai's coastline on October 2.

Since it's a high-profile case, police personnel in huge numbers have been deployed outside jail and barricades have been erected owing to mass gathering and media presence.

On Friday, at around 5.30 pm, Bollywood actress Juhi Chawla completed the formalities to secure Aryan Khan's bail.

The court then accepted her as the surety for Aryan's bail as she signed off crucial papers and executed the bail bond before the court officials.

The bail papers were sent directly to the jail authorities for processing after Chawla had reportedly carried out the formalities. But, according to news reports, the physical copy of Aryan Khan's release order was dropped in the bail box after the stipulated time.

The Bombay High Court granted bail to Aryan Khan with a $1, 335 bond, as per the orders issued on Friday.
