Even as you read this, a battery of lawyers are mulling over the legal options to get Aryan Khan out of jail on bail.

The honourable court's stunning decision to send Shah Rukh Khan's eldest child to the harshest prison in Mumbai has sent chills up spines.

A young upcoming actor who spent a month in the same prison tells Subhash K Jha, "A stint there, no matter how long or short, scars you for life, destroys your selfconfidence. You can't eat or drink water because then you have to use the toilets which are over-flooded with faeces streaming all over the floors."

"You can't sleep because there is no bed or mattress. You can only pray that the rapists and sex offenders don't recognise you because if they know who you are, they target you in ways that you don't even want to think about," the actor adds.

Sources close to Shah Rukh say he will meet his son soon. Contrary to some reports, Aryan has not met his father since the arrest.

A close family friend rubbishes reports of Aryan getting food, clothes and other amenities from home.

"All this talk of Aryan getting special treatment is a whole lot of hogwash. For all his pampered upbringing, and life in the lap of luxury, Aryan is a tough boy. He won't crack up and crumble, if that's the plan."

In an interview with Subhash several years ago, Shah Rukh had said, "I'm always happy with what I do. I've never been happier. I've a unique way of dealing with life. I never fight it. I take it on its own terms."

"I first go with the flow and then I overtake it. So far I've never had to fight against fate."

It looks like it's time to fight against fate.
