On the occasion of Father’s Day Bollywood King Khan indirectly shared the news with us. Yesterday, Shah Rukh posted a picture of himself and his son Aryan Khan. They both are seen wearing a blue jersey with the name Mufasa and Simba written on it. We didn’t know that Shah Rukh was indirectly announcing some news. Both father and son duo will be dubbing for the film “The Lion King”. Shah Rukh will dub for Mufasa who is a wise king and father of Simba. He teaches Simba about how to survive in the wild African jungle with great abilities of kingship. While Aryan will give voice to Simba character.

The film is the remake of 1994 animated version. The Lion King is a Disney Classic film directed by Jon Favreau. The 53-old actor in an interview said that the film will be really special for him and Aryan. However, it will indulge the youngest audience more just like his 6 years old son AbRam. Therefore, he stated, “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, the head of Studio Entertainment, Disney India, said, “The Lion King is a classic that epitomizes Disney’s the 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 connection 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”.
