The Lion King Hindi Teaser: Like Father, Like Son
Aryan Khan, son of Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan gave voice to Simba, son of Musafa (SRK).
Aryan Khan, son of Badshah of Bollywood Shah Rukh Khan gives voiceover to Simba in the film The Lion King and we can't stop adoring the uncanny resemblance of his voice to his father, SRK's voice.
The teaser starts with Aryan's voice-over, Main hoon Simba, Mufasa ka beta and suddenly nostalgia hits which remind us SRK of the '90s.
Directed by Jon Favreau, The Lion King is a reboot of Disney's much-loved animated classic of the same name. Simba is the next in line to be king, after his father Mufasa. However, Mufasa's brother Scar, who was the heir before Simba was born, conspires to kill them both and take over the kingdom.
Interestingly, SRK who dubbed the voice of Mufasa had to re-dub due to the similarity of his voice with his son Aryan's.
"We were listening to one of the scenes and all the experts in the dubbing theatre said I sounded like him (Aryan). They told me I'd have to dub the scene again because we sounded too much like each other, which I never thought was the case," SRK told.
Young Lions don’t tweet so on behalf of Simba #AryanKhan I want to thank u all for appreciating his effort. Also thx to @disneyfilmindia & the team at Sound & Vision ( Mona & Mayur gang) & doesn’t his voice sound a bit familiar? Or is it just me?— Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) July 11, 2019
"It was a sweet thing for a father to know, it was extremely special and heart-warming," he added
The Lion King will hit theatres across the country on July 19.
