SRK, Aryan to voice Mufasa, Simba in ‘The Lion King’ Hindi version

Much to the delight of the audiences, Bollywood’s favourite father-son duo Shah Rukh Khan and Aryan Khan will lend their voices for the Hindi version of Disney’s ‘The Lion King‘. While, Shah Rukh will lend his voice to the King of the Jungle, Lion Mufasa, Aryan will dub for Mufasa’s son Simba.

Film critic Taran Adarsh confirmed in his tweet on Monday. On the occasion of Father’s Day coinciding with the India-Pakistan World Cup match, the ‘Zero‘ actor had shared a picture of himself and Aryan donning Indian cricket jerseys. While the actor’s t-shirt read ‘Mufasa’, Aryan’s had ‘Simba’ printed on it.

From the trailer, it seems like the upcoming film is a shot-by-shot remake of the 1994 animated film. With the screenplay written by Jeff Nathanson and songs by legends like Elton John and Tim Rice, the movie is directed by Jon Favreau. The film will hit the theatres on July 19.
