Before the official statement was unveiled, Shah Rukh Khan in a very cryptic way made clear that he’s been voicing for Mufasa in The Jungle Book. Son, Aryan Khan is lending his voice for Simba buzzing up the hype for the Hindi version of the film.
Shah is known for his philosophical views and how he speaks sense about whatever says. In an interview published by Movie Talkies, SRK has talked about the values this movie will teach you. Somewhere down the line, the tone of his statements also shows how much he is emotionally attached to the film.
The quote read, “The story inheritably gives a lot of morals. I personally don’t look for morals in a movie and enjoy it as pure entertainment. It is inheritably entertaining because it does talk about relationships. Many times, when kids are growing with their parents, they don’t realize that what their parents say could actually come handy much later on. It’s unfortunate that you remember the teachings of your parents when they are not in your life.”
Initiating on an emotional note, SRK added, “Somewhere down the line, the story reflects that it’s nicer to listen to your parents and understand the deeper meaning of what they are saying to you. It does teach you that – Our parents always live within us and their teachings never go away. Personally, I do feel the same, the small things that my father and mother said actually define me now, and I realize it now and I didn’t realize it then.”
On the work front, Shah Rukh Khan has not officially announced any film yet since Zero. There have been a lot of rumours about his upcoming projects but, as of now, nothing is official yet. It would be interesting to see, where is he heading after this mini-sabbatical.
