After Shah Rukh Khan released the Hindi teaser of The Lion King, in which he voices Mufasa, fans have been eagerly waiting to hear Aryan Khan. Shah Rukh's elder son Aryan Khan voices Simba in the Hindi version of the film.
The wait is finally over with Shah Rukh taking to social media on Thursday to share the teaser featuring Aryan Khan's voice. You are bound to get goosebumps as you listen to Aryan say 'Main Hoon Simba, Mufasa Ka Beta'. Sounding exactly like father Shah Rukh, Aryan seems to be an apt pick to voice the Lion King.
Disney has roped in singers Sunidhi Chauhan and Armaan Malik to croon the desi versions of 'Hakuna Matata' and 'Spirit' in the film. The Hindi version will see Ashish Vidyarthi as the iconic villain, Scar, Shreyas Talpade as Timon, Sanjai Mishra as Pumbaa and Asrani as Zazu.
"The story gives a lot of morals. I personally don't look for morals in a movie and enjoy it as pure entertainment. It is entertaining because it does talk about relationships. Many times, when kids are growing with their parents, they don't realise that what their parents say could actually come handy much later on,” Shah Rukh said in a statement.
"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,” he added.
The Jon Favreau-directed adaptation of the Disney classic is set to release on July 19.
