Reliable Sources told IANS on Saturday that Byju‘s has stopped all ads featuring SRK, apparently after social media users criticised the edtech company for endorsing ads featuring the actor, who has been the brand ambassador since 2017.
Reacting to the news, Nakuul took a dig at the edtech company as he wrote, “Being replaced by the serving minister who’s son is arrested for murder charges! Class, Byju’s” Have a look:

The criticism came in the wake of arrests after a high-drama rave party raid on Cordelia Cruise ship during the Mumbai-Goa voyage by the NCB on October 2. On October 7, a Mumbai court rejected his bail plea, and of two others who were among the 8 arrested. Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate R.M. Nerlikar rejected the bail applications of Aryan, Arbaaz Merchant, and Munmun Dhamecha, on grounds of “maintainability”, upholding the contentions of the legal team of the Narcotics Control Bureau.
Meanwhile, celebs like Salman Khan, Hrithik Roshan, Farah Khan, Pooja Bhatt and Raveena Tandon amongst others have extended their support to Shah Rukh and Gauri Khan during these testing times. Aryan is currently in 14-day judicial custody while his legal team has moved the Sessions Court and his bail hearing is likely to be on Monday, October 11.
