Shah Rukh Khan and his son, Aryan Khan have lent their voices for the Hindi-language dub of the upcoming remake of ‘The Lion King.’ Shah Rukh Khan will voice Mufasa, the King of the Pride Lands and Simba’s father and Aryan, on the other hand, will do the same for Simba, Mufasa’s son.
King Khan and son Aryan team-up, give voice-over as “Mufasa” and “Simba”
while Shah Rukh’s jersey read ‘Mufasa’, Aryan’s shirt read ‘Simba’, a callback to the hit Disney animated film, The Lion King. “Ready for the match with the spirit of #FathersDay. Go India Go!!,” he wrote in his tweet.
“Voicing the father-son duo of Mufasa and Simba has been such a wonderful personal and professional moment for Aryan and me. It will be really special to watch this movie with our little one, Abram, as he is a big fan of the film. And watching his big brother and father voice the characters in this live-action version is surely going to make it a memorable experience.” – Shahrukh Khan
Well, this is not the first time Shahrukh and Aryan are collaborating on the big screen. In 2004, the father-son duo gave voiceover for the Hindi version of The Incredibles which was dubbed as Hum Hain Lajawab. Shah Rukh Khan gave voiceover for Mr. Incredible and Aryan Khan for Dash, known as Lajawab and Tej in the Hindi-language dub of the Pixar film.
The Lion King out in Indian cinemas on 19th July.
