Twinkle Khanna has extended her support to Aryan Khan by comparing his arrest to the hit South Korean series Squid Game. Aryan, who has been arrested by the Narcotics Control Bureau in an alleged drugs case, has been in Mumbai's Arthur Road Jail since 8 October and was denied bail by a special court on 20 October.

In an Instagram post, Twinkle shared excerpts from her blog, titled 'Let the desi Squid Games begin’. Citing the example from one of the episodes of the show she wrote, “Each player is given ten marbles and must get their opponent’s marbles by competing in any game of their choosing. In this episode, one of the strongest candidates is badgered and ultimately bamboozled into losing his marbles. I seem to have misplaced mine as well when I read the news about Shah Rukh Khan’s son’s arrest.”

Twinkle added that it's unfair that Aryan is 'languishing' in jail when reportedly there's no evidence against him. “While his friend was apparently carrying 6 gm of charas, there is reportedly no evidence of possession by Aryan Khan. Yet, the young boy has been languishing in Arthur Road jail for almost two weeks now.”

Recalling Arnab Goswami's proclamations during the Sushant Singh Rajput case Twinkle wrote, "I suppose I feel like emulating one of Arnab’s dramatic proclamations where he once said, ‘Mujhe drug do, mujhe drugs do,’ because I need some heavy-duty psychotropic substances to make sense of this development.”
