Recently, at a book launch event, Javed Akhtar was asked if he feels Bollywood is being routinely targeted with raids, he said, "This is the price the film industry has to pay for being high profile. When you're high profile, people have fun pulling you down, throwing muck at you. If you're a nobody, then who has the time to throw stones at you?". He was speaking at the launch of the book ‘Changemakers’ written by authors Almas Virani and Sweta Samota.

Aryan Khan was arrested on October 3 by the Narcotics Control Bureau along with seven others. He is currently lodged in the Arthur Road Jail. A special NDPS court judge will be passing bail orders today. The hearing of his bail plea was held on October 13 and 14.
