In this video posted 3 years ago, it was written that a man urinated after drinking alcohol at the airport. Some people wrote that he would not be able to control due to intoxication, then some wrote that it is not a crime to be jailed. Some wrote that he was not conscious due to intoxication.

The Twilight Saga series actor Bronson Pelletier And the person seen in the video is not Aryan Khan but actor Bronson Pelletier, who worked in The Twilight Saga series of films, who urinated at the airport in a state of intoxication. The Canadian actor was 35 years old at that time. He was then sent on probation for 2 years. Therefore, this video has nothing to do with Aryan or Shahrukh, the wrong message is being viral to defame them.
