Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan is one among them. The others are Nupur Sarika, Ismeet Singh, Mohak Jaswal, Vikrant Chhoker, Gomit Chopra, Munmun Dhamecha and Arbaaz Merchant.

He appears to in the inner circle of chosen few amongst the star kids as he is seen partying with actor Ananya Pandey also who is daughter of actor Chunky Pandey. Arbaaz is rumoured to have dated actress Alaya Furniturewalla in past.
