For Me, SRK’s Son Aryan Was a Star at the Age of 9: Karan Johar

While Shah Rukh Khan’s 18 year old son Aryan is busy studying in London, Bollywood seems to be making grand career plans for him. There has been a lot of speculation around whether he’ll make a grand debut in films or pick a different career altogether. According to a TOI report, Karan Johar recently declared that as Aryan’s godfather, he would love to launch the star kid, whenever he decides to take up films. Kjo was quizzed about Aryan’s filmi plans at a recent event and the filmmaker replied straight from the heart:

Aryan Khan is my godson. I’m so glad that he got into a university of his choice. When SRK called me in Jaipur and told me that Aryan was going to university, I got teary-eyed. My career and Aryan are of the same age. In fact, he was born one day after the first schedule of Kuch Kuch Hota Hai wrapped up. It was as if Gauri waited for my schedule to finish and then deliver him. I remember rushing to the hospital and waiting with Shah Rukh. That kid we held in our arms is 18 years of age now. And he is getting the best education one can ask for.

Godfather Karan Johar can’t wait to launch Aryan with one of his films, but the filmmaker also said that for him Aryan was a star even at the age of 9.

Aryan is such an amazing child. Coming to the question on whether I am launching him, well, I certainly cannot answer that one now. First of all, he (Aryan) has to express his desire to become an actor. Whenever he is ready and if I am up to it, I would love to. I do not want to speak on his behalf. He should be saying what it is that he wants to do. But if you ask me, I would say, I hope Aryan becomes a movie star. For me, he is a movie star. He was a star at the age of nine.

KJo joked about going senile by the time Aryan decides to become an actor, but from his heartfelt speech about SRK’s first born, we know that he’ll always be looking out for him.

He has a terrific personality. He has his father’s sense of humour and his mother’s compassion. And cumulatively, he has the best qualities of SRK and Gauri. I would be so excited to parent him on celluloid. I hope I am on top of the game by the time Aryan is ready for his launch. And I hope that I am not senile by then. He is my bachcha and I want the best for him.

Well Aryan has time on his side and is currently busy studying in London. But the lucky kid has uncle Johar standing in line with arms wide open.
