Time flies in the blink of an eye and there are no second thoughts about that! An apt reminder of the same is how the star-kids have grown up and are all set to make their own mark in the industry. And as excited we are to witness them making their own path and struggling their way to carry forward their star parents/family’s legacy, it is overwhelming to see how they have grown up to be as charming as their parents. Shah Rukh Khan and his 23-year-old young lad, Aryan Khan have time and again proved that style is hereditary. With the same confident looks, dashing personality and a charming smile to make any girl/woman go weak on her knees, Aryan has grown up to be his father’s carbon copy.

While we were waiting with bated breath for Aryan Khan’s official announcement about his debut in the film industry, his father, Shah Rukh Khan had clarified that his son is not interested in acting. As much as we were heartbroken with this clarification, we are delighted to see Aryan nailing his BTS talent. For instance, when Shah Rukh and Kolkata Knight Riders had released a new fan anthem, Laphao, it was none other than his young lad, Aryan, who had 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, contained the information about the same.
After being the voice of Simba in The Lion King, Aryan Khan had impressed us with his conceptualisation and developer skills. Isn’t he one talented lad? Though Aryan has his own sense of style, which is extremely millennial, its core seems to be an extension of his father, Shah Rukh Khan's charm. February 18, 2021, brought in another proud moment for Shah Rukh as his son, Aryan filled in for him at the Indian Premier League 2021 auction. The co-owner of Kolkata Knight Riders, Juhi Chawla posted a picture of Aryan and her daughter, Jahnavi Mehta from the auctions and the proud mother captioned her post as "So happy to see both the KKR kids, Aryan and Jahnavi at the Auction table @iamsrk @KKRiders." However, it was a video of Aryan, running his hand through his hair, which reminded everyone of Shah Rukh.
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."
A boy from Delhi, Shah Rukh Khan became an inspiration for everyone when he etched his name in the history of Indian cinema with his sheer hard work and dedication. His wife, Gauri Khan and kids, Aryan Khan, Suhana Khan and AbRam Khan too, enjoy the stardom and are loved immensely by fans. Proof of which is the innumerous fan pages on social media dedicated to every member of the Khan family. One of the fan pages posted videos of Aryan, playing the guitar and singing Charlie Puth's song, Attention. Aryan’s style had reminded us of Shah Rukh from his film, Jab Tak Hai Jaan.
