Ever since we have seen a glimpse of baby Aryan Khan in Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, we were eagerly waiting for the starlet to make his entry in Bollywood. Finally, our wishes were half-granted when Shah Rukh Khan had released the teaser of The Lion King which had his son, Aryan’s voice as Simba. And it had taken social media with a storm! The uncanny resemblance of Aryan’s voice with Shah Rukh garnered him a lot of praises. Now that Aryan has officially made his debut in the film industry, we are not only waiting for his next film but it has also made us crave to know more about this 21-year-old’s personal life.
Well, there's a bit of a heartbreak for Aryan Khan fans, especially girls! According to a Mumbai Mirror report, Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan’s eldest lad, Aryan is taken. Reportedly, Aryan is dating a blogger from London, where he has been studying for the past few months. The report also stated that his mommy, Gauri has already met the girl and the verdict all around is that she is a very sweet girl. Heartbroken, aren't you?
Does Shah Rukh Khan give relationship advice to Aryan Khan? In a throwback interview, Shah Rukh had revealed, “I give relationship advice to no one. I think you should not give such advice to anyone. Because every relationship is different, every f***-up is different, every happiness is different. You should just let everyone be. Yeah, sometimes, in a fun, gossipy way, you can talk about somebody else’s relationship, but I think, as weird, conservative or wild as a relationship may be, it’s perfectly all right. You should not judge it. I have heard of some really awkward ones and maybe you get a little surprised, but if it suits them, it’s fine.”
Also, do you know, dad Shah Rukh Khan will rip off son, Aryan Khan’s lips if he kisses a girl? He had shared in another interview, “I’d rip off Aryan’s lips. I can’t rip off a girl’s lips — that’s not a charming gentlemanly thing to do. (Laughs) So, I will rip off Aryan’s lips, on behalf of the girl’s father. (Smiles) You can’t touch or harm a girl.” (Also Read: Shah Rukh Khan Is Holidaying With His Kids, Aryan, Suhana And AbRam In Maldives)
Coming back to Shah Rukh Khan and Aryan Khan’s voice in The Lion King as Mufasa and Simba, the former has revealed that he had to dub for certain scenes all over again because of the similarity in the father-son voice. In an interview with the IANS, Shah Rukh had said, "We were listening to one of the scenes and all the experts in the dubbing theatre said I sounded like him (Aryan). They told me I'd have to dub the scene again because we sounded too much like each other, which I never thought was the case." He continued, "It was a sweet thing for a father to know, it was extremely special and heart-warming."
Expressing the experience of working with his son, Aryan Khan, Shah Rukh Khan remarked, "For me, the experience of dubbing with Aryan is very personal. I got time to spend with him professionally. I am a professional actor and I have to do this, but my family has never really been associated with the work I do." Shah Rukh went on to say, "So, it's very heartening. When we did 'The Incredibles', Aryan was around nine years old. It was very sweet to hear his voice then, and (it is sweet to hear) even now. The time spent with him in my line of work is special. For me, it's a bonding time with Aryan."
Shah Rukh Khan is quite often asked about Aryan Khan’s debut in films, the latter being a superstar’s son. Elaborating on the similar lines, Shah Rukh had once shared, “Aryan is studying to be a filmmaker and a writer, while Suhana wants to be an actor. But even if he wants to be a filmmaker, he needs to study for another five to six years and not just the literal form of studying, but probably be an assistant to Karan after he finishes his film-making course.” (Also Read: Sidharth Malhotra Failed Class 9 Due To Girls' Distraction, Wants To Kidnap This Bollywood Star Kid)
