From Gauri to KJo, B’Town Is All Praise for Aryan Khan as Simba
The Lion King will be Aryan Khan’s introduction to the world and everyone has been anticipating his debut. As soon as Shah Rukh Khan shared a glimpse of Aryan as Simba, celebrities have been sharing the clip and reacting to it positively. Who better than to receive praise from than mommy dearest? Gauri Khan cannot stop listening to her son’s voice, as she tweeted, “Watching this on repeat.”
A close friend of the Khans, director Karan Johar couldn’t contain his excitement. “Pardon my excitement! But Aryan is the first born in our family!!! And even just hearing his voice has made me so so excited !!!!! And without a bias he sounds amazing!!!!!” he wrote.
Deepika Padukone too shared the clip and wrote, “LOVE.” Director Anurag Kashyap loved Aryan’s voice (as did all of us) and said, “His voice is so deep and expressive.”
Houseful actor Riteish Deshmukh went a step ahead and called his voice even better than Shah Rukh’s. Well, that’s some comparison!
On 12 July, Shah Rukh had shared the clip and wrote, “Mera Simba” (My Simba). Aryan begins by saying, “Main hoon Simba, Mufasa ka beta (I am Simba, Mufasa’s son).” He goes on to say that his dad had made him a protector of the jungle, so he should fight.
Earlier, the first trailer of the dubbed version was dropped. We heard Shah Rukh giving lessons in being a good king to young Simba.
