As expected, for a significant amount of time of late, there have been a multitude of speculations surrounding the film debut of Shah Rukh Khan’s son, Aryan Khan. Aryan in currently studying the art of film making and writing as he reportedly does not have any solid plans to appear before the camera. Nonetheless, the 21-year-old has already gone behind the microphone and lent his beautiful vocals to an extremely exciting project.
According to latest reports, Aryan has lent his voice for the character of Simba. His father on the other hand has pursued the voice-over for Mufasa, in the Hindi version of upcoming Hollywood film, The Lion King. For those who are unaware, this is the live-action version of the animated film that released in the year 1994.
The 1994 film, directed by Jon Favreau of Iron Man and The Jungle Book fame, is said to be a “favorite of the favorite” at SRK’s Mumbai home, also known as, Mannat. The 53-year-old actor revealed that voicing the characters was an extremely personal concern for Aryan and himself: “Voicing the father-son duo of Mufasa and Simba has been such a wonderful personal and professional moment for Aryan and me. It will be really special to watch this movie with our little one, AbRam (the youngest of the SRK tribe), as he is a big fan of the film. And watching his big brother and father voice the characters in this live action version is surely going to make it a memorable experience,” the legend elaborated. “I hope families can make some happy memories together, watching The Lion King, as much as my family had fun being part of it,” Shah Rukh expressed.

Their blue t-shirts read ‘Mufasa’ and ‘Simba.’ “Ready for the match with the spirit of #FathersDay. Go India Go!” he wrote. Shah Rukh Khan was last seen in Zero that released in December last year.
