- Shah Rukh offers a personal gesture of gratitude: He wrote, “God bless you. Whenever you find it convenient, please let me know, and I will personally come to give you a hug. I have always held you in the highest regard for your integrity, and now my respect for you has multiplied. Big respect.”

- A plea for leniency: “I beg you, please. For God’s sake, ask your team to proceed slowly. I promise I will stand by you always and assist you in achieving all the good you are striving for. This is a sincere promise, and you know me well enough to trust that I will keep it,” implored Shah Rukh.
- Acknowledging his son’s mistakes: Shah Rukh admitted that Aryan had gone astray, stating, “I beseech you to show mercy to me and my family.

I beg you. I love my children just as you love yours.”
- The plea not to break faith in the justice system: “Sameer, I am a kind and gentle person. Please, don’t let my faith in you and the system be shattered. It would devastate us as a family,” pleaded Shah Rukh.
