When Aryan Khan became the voice of Simba in The Lion King, fans were convinced that his father, Shah Rukh Khan will get a serious competition once his 22-year-old boy makes his debut in the industry. There are no second thoughts that Aryan has inherited Shah Rukh’s effortless sense of style, great hair and laid-back fashion and the same intensity in his eyes. Even before Aryan entered the industry, like most star kids, he was an internet sensation. Since the late 80s, Shah Rukh has been ruling our hearts and looks like in future, Aryan will beautifully carry forward his father’s legacy.

It was on November 13, 1997, when Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan had embraced parenthood with the arrival of their firstborn. Aryan Khan amazingly fulfils his duties as a son, and an elder sibling to his sister, Suhana Khan and the little one, AbRam Khan. Be it partying with Suhana, accompanying her to KKR matches or playing and spending time with his younger brother, AbRam, Aryan balances his time between family and friends perfectly. While we are waiting for Aryan to make his debut as an actor, the soon-to-be 23-year-old has been making us swoon with his BTS talents.
After being the voice of Simba in The Lion King, Aryan Khan impressed us with his conceptualisation and developer skills. On October 20, 2020, Shah Rukh Khan and Kolkata Knight Riders have released a new fan anthem, Laphao, and King Khan had given a special appearance in the song, which had delighted his fans. It was none other than Shah Rukh’s young lad, Aryan, who donned the hat of video conceptualiser and developer for the song. The description box of Kolkata Knight Riders' official YouTube channel, where Laphao was released, has information about the same. Aryan is in UAE with his family and is often spotted with Shah Rukh and Suhana Khan at the KKR matches.
When Shah Rukh Khan had featured on Netflix original, My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman, he was asked if his son, Aryan Khan wants to become an actor like his superstar dad. To which, the doting daddy had retorted, "My son doesn’t want to act and I don’t think he can. But you know in India it's like okay if you are a movie star's son then you become a movie star. He looks nice and tall and okay...But I don’t think he has what it takes perhaps, and he realises it himself. He is a good writer."

Revealing the ‘practical and honest’ reason of Aryan Khan for why he doesn’t want to be an actor, Shah Rukh Khan had said, "I think wanting to become an actor has to come from within. It's something that you are wanting to do and really feel like doing and then find the set of skills and learn it. But I think I have realised it from him when he said that. He came and said that, 'I don’t think I want to act. His issue was, which I think is very practical and honest. He said, 'every time I will be compared to you. So, if I do well, it’ll not be because I got skilled at this it'll be 'oh he is his son, he will do well. It's in the genes' and then he said if I don't do well it'll always be 'my God look at him, what his father did and what is he doing?'. So, he said I don’t want to be in that position."
In 2019, a Mumbai Mirror report had informed that Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan’s eldest lad, Aryan Khan is taken. Reportedly, Aryan is dating a blogger from London, where he is studying. The report had also stated that his mommy, Gauri had already met the girl and the verdict all around was that she is a very sweet girl. Heartbroken, aren't you? Before this mystery girl, Aryan was rumoured to be dating Amitabh Bachchan’s granddaughter and Shweta Bachchan Nanda’s daughter, Navya Naveli Nanda. Aryan and Navya went to Sevenoaks School for high-school graduation in London and had shared a common group of friends. Hence, the speculations about these two star kids dating each other had grabbed the headlines.
