Shah Rukh Khan is all set to be part of a unique project with a unique co-star. The actor who was last seen in Zero is all set to lend his voice for Disney’s The Lion King. But this project is extra special and the reason is that it includes his son Aryan.
The father-son duo will lend their voice for the Hindi version of The Lion King. Aryan will voice for the lead character Simba while SRK will be the voice behind Mufasa.
Shah Rukh Khan said,
“The Lion King is that one movie that my entire family loves the most and it holds a very special place in our hearts. As a father, I can totally relate with Mufasa and the endearing relationship he shares with his son – Simba. The legacy of Lion King is timeless; and being a part of this iconic re-imagining with my son Aryan makes it extra special for me. We are most excited that AbRam is going to watch this.”
Bikram Duggal, Head – Studio Entertainment, Disney India said,
“The Lion King is a classic that epitomizes Disney’s prowess of bringing heartwarming stories that are timeless and transcend generations. Now with the re-imagined version, our aim is to reach out to a wider audience; introducing the tale about a pride of lions to a whole new generation of audiences while forging a deeper connect with existing fans. We cannot imagine having a better voice cast than Shah Rukh Khan and his son Aryan to bring the characters of Mufasa and Simba to life in Hindi.”
