A post accompanying a video of a young man, who appears to be highly intoxicated, urinating in public at an airport is being widely shared with a claim that the video shows Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan. Eventually, the video shows the security personnel taking the man into custody. Through this article let’s fact-check the claim made in the post.
Claim: Video of Aryan Khan urinating in public at an airport.
Fact: The viral video actually shows Bronson Pelletier, the Twilight actor, who was arrested for urinating in public at the Los Angeles International Airport back in December 2012. Later on, he was found guilty and was sentenced to two years of probation. Multiple news agencies have reported the same back then. Moreover, there no such reports of Aryan Khan being involved in such an incident in recent times or in the past. Hence, the claim made in the post is FALSE.
Neither the man in the video urinating in public is Aryan Khan nor the video shows any recent incident. Google search with relevant keywords yielded multiple 2013 news reports (here, here, and here) which reported the same visuals. According to these reports, the person in the video is Bronson Pelletier, the Twilight actor, who was seen urinating in public at the Los Angeles International Airport. The incident took place in December 2012, when the actor was initially removed from a plane after being caught in a highly intoxicated state and causing disturbance on board.
Moreover, there are no reports of Aryan Khan being involved in any such incident in recent times or in the past. Also, there are also no reports of his public appearance after he was granted bail in October 2021 in a drug case.
To sum it up, this is not Aryan Khan but Bronson Pelletier, the Twilight actor arrested for urinating in public at an airport in 2012.
