Shahrukh and his son Aryan Khan both were roped in for Hindi dubbing of The Lion King Reboot.
His fans are pretty excited to see the father-son duo’s dubbed vocals. Shah Rukh Khan has given his voice to Mufasa while Aryan Khan has given his voice to Mufasa’s son Simba, in the reboot of Disney’s classic animated film The Lion King, which is helmed by Jon Favreau.
Since day one, Shah Rukh shared the second teaser of the film, that has Aryan’s voice, netizens have been echoing that Aryan’s voice sounds too similar to that of his father Shah Rukh.
This isn’t the first time, that these father and son have worked together on a project. In the past, they lent their voice to the Hindi version of The Incredibles.
Sharing his experience of working with Aryan in The Lion King, Shah Rukh Khan told IANS, “For me, the experience of dubbing with Aryan is very personal. I got time to spend with him professionally. I am a professional actor and I have to do this, but my family has never really been associated with the work I do.”
“So, it’s very heartening. When we did ‘The Incredibles’, Aryan was around nine years old. It was very sweet to hear his voice then, and (it is sweet to hear) even now. The time spent with him in my line of work is special. For me, it’s a bonding time with Aryan.”
For those who arrived late, The Lion King narrates the story of Simba, who’s the next in line to be the king after his father Mufasa. The tables turn when Mufasa’s brother Scar conspires to kill them both to take over the kingdom.
Scar was the king before Simba was born. Simba, on the other hand, grows up in exile but he goes on to accept his destiny to reclaim his rightful throne. Nala – a young lioness helps him in his attempts and in the process, Simba falls for her for good.
The film is set to release on coming 19th July.
