Fact Check:

NewsMeter found the claim to be false.

The video is related to an incident that took place in 2012, and it was not Aryan Khan who urinated publicly in the video. During keyword search on Google, we came across several news articles that reported similar scenes in 2013.

According to the report, Canadian actor Bronson Pelletier, who starred in the movie Twilight, was seen urinating in public in the video. The incident took place at Los Angeles International Airport in December 2012. He was arrested for urinating in public under the influence of alcohol.
