Akhil Katyal's poem in praise of Shah Rukh Khan and the diverse characters he has played over the years is a hit among his friends, colleagues and fans. Everyone from Masaan director Neeraj Ghaywan, screenwriter Kanika Dhillon to actor Swara Bhasker have praised the poem on Twitter. 

The poem read, “Wo kabhi Rahul hai, kabhi Raj Kabhi Charlie toh kabhi Max Surinder bhi wo, Harry bhi wo Devdas bhi our Veer bhi Ram, Mohan, Kabir bhi Wo Amar hai, Samar hai Rizwan, Raees, Jehangir bhi. Shayad isliye kuch logon ke halak mein fasta hai, Ki ek Shahrukh mein pura Hindustan basta hai (He is sometimes Rahul, sometimes Charlie, sometimes Max; he is also Surinder, Harry, Devdas, Veer, Ram, Mohan and Kabir. He is Amar, Rizwan as well as Raees and Jehangir. Maybe that's why he bothers some people; all of Hindustan resides within him)."

The lyrics went, “Bandhan Hai Rishton Mein, Kaaton Ki Taarein Hain, Patthar Ke Darwaaze Deewaarein, Belein Phir Bhi Ugti Hain, Aur Guchchhe Bhi Khilte Hain, Aur Chalte Hain Afsaane, Kirdaar Bhi Milte Hain, Vo Rishtey Dil Dil Dil Thay. Love you @iamsrk! Dil se.”

Aryan is yet to get bail in the case and his next court hearing is scheduled for Wednesday. He is currently in judicial custody and lodged at the Arthur Road prison in Mumbai.
