Shah Rukh Khan’s eldest son Aryan Khan, who has worked in The Lion King as a voice over artist, has come under the eyes of the media for all the good reasons. After this, it is being reported that Aryan will soon do his debut in a mega-budget South Indian film.
According to a leading daily, Aryan has been approached by director Gunasekhar for his next film titled Hiranyakashipu that also stars Rana Daggubati and Prabhas.
Post the Baahubali franchise, it is believed that this film could be one of the grandest projects. The film would also star Anushka Shetty. There is no official confirmation as yet.
Superstar Shah Rukh Khan on Thursday shared a video presenting his son Aryan Khan as Simba from the upcoming film “The Lion King“.
Shah Rukh tweeted the promotional video of the Hindi version of Disney’s live-action film, where Aryan is heard introducing himself as Simba, son of Mufasa.
“Mera Simba,” Shah Rukh, who will be voicing Mufasa, captioned the image.
The 53-year-old star’s close friend and filmmaker Karan Johar tweeted that he got excited hearing Aaryan’s voice.
“Pardon my excitement! But Aryan is the firstborn in our family! And even just hearing his voice has made me so so excited! And without bias he sounds amazing,” Karan tweeted.
“The Lion King” follows the adventures of Simba, who is to succeed his father Mufasa, as King of the Pride Lands, and narrates a tale of how he rises to the occasion despite several attempts to bring him down by his villainous uncle Scar.
“The Jungle Book” fame director Jon Favreau has re-imagined the world of Disney’s classic to bring alive the new live-action version. He has stayed true to the classic story of Simba and used pioneering filmmaking techniques to bring the iconic characters alive on the big screen in a new way.
The film will release in India on July 19 in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
