Former Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi had argued before the court on Wednesday that Aryan was invited to the cruise ship and that there was "no possession of drugs" and he should get bail.

The court hearing went on for three days after which the judge allowed bail for Aryan Khan, Munmun Dhamecha and Arbaz Merchant.

Rohatgi informed that all of them may come out of jail on Friday or Saturday.
