Following the release of Shah Rukh Khan's film Jawan, Sameer Wankhede once again grabbed the spotlight by securing victory in a high-profile bribery case valued at 25 crore rupees, which implicated the superstar's son, Aryan Khan.

Nevertheless, Sameer Wankhede faced charges related to criminal conspiracy and extortion threats in connection to the same case.

This decision was based on the fact that Gyaneshwar Singh had previously issued instructions to Wankhede during the Cordelia drug bust case investigation. ALSO READ | DID YOU KNOW?
