ARYAN KHAN DUBBED FOR THE LION KING
In 2019, Aryan Khan had dubbed the Hindi version of The Lion King. He voiced the role of Simba and in fact, sounded just like his father. In June that year, Shah Rukh Khan had introduced his son Aryan Khan as Simba in a unique way. When the entire country was rooting for Team India during the ICC World Cup 2019, Shah Rukh Khan shared a picture of himself and Aryan wearing Team India jerseys. While SRK’s jersey had Mufasa written on it, Aryan’s read Simba.
Talking about working with Aryan in The Lion King, Shah Rukh had told an entertainment website, “When we did Incredibles, Aryan was about nine years old. It was very sweet to hear his voice. Even now, years later when I’m doing it for Lion King. For me, it’s an amazing bonding time with Aryan.”
ARYAN KHAN DOESN’T WANT TO BE AN ACTOR
Aryan Khan’s father might be the country’s biggest star, however, he is not interested in acting, Shah Rukh Khan had revealed the same on David Letterman’s show, My Next Guest Needs No Introduction. “He looks nice, he’s tall and…okay. But I don’t think he has what it takes perhaps, and he realises that himself. But he is a good writer,” Shah Rukh Khan had said.
In an interview with a newspaper later, Shah Rukh revealed that while Aryan wants to enter the world of films, he is more interested in directing than acting.
“Neither my son nor my daughter have been groomed to be actors. Suhana has an inclination towards wanting to be an actor. She finishes school in six months after which she will go to an educational institute for three-four years to train in acting. Aryan doesn’t want to be an actor, he wants to make films, become a director and is training for it in the US. AbRam I don’t know, he’s good-looking enough to be a rock star (sic),” he said.
