In 2021, Sana Raees Khan represented Avin Sahu, one of the co-accused in the widely-publicized 2021 arrest of Aryan Khan, the son of Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan. During the court proceedings, she argued that neither Avin nor Aryan had any drugs with them when they were taken into custody by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB). This argument proved to be crucial in helping her client receive bail; it was later used by Aryan’s defence team as well. Sana Raees Khan’s successful representation of Avin Sahu highlighted her skill and expertise as a criminal defence lawyer.

Mumbai Cruise Drug Case
In October 2023, a defamation case of Rs. 10 crore was filed against Sana by a social media influencer named Faizan Ansari. According to Ansari, Sana used Aryan Khan‘s name during the 2021 Mumbai Cruise Drug Case to gain popularity. In the complaint, Ansari pointed out that Sana represented Avin Sahu in the case, yet she used Aryan’s name to draw media attention. Some reports indicate that Faizan accused Sana of being a fraudster, and as he was facing difficulties finding legal representation, he brought the case to the attention of the Police Commissioner of Mumbai.
