Even today, he makes our hearts swoon with ting ting ting ting, ting ting ta ting in Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge as he shakes his head while playing the mandolin. He sways us in love with the magical tunes of trumpet and harmonica in Kabhi Haan Kabhi Naa. In Dil To Pagal Hai, he makes our hearts go dhak dhak with his drum-sequence in the film. By playing the violin in Mohabbatein, he takes us to another world of romance. He makes us dance crazily with joy when he plays the guitar on-stage in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. That is how, every single time, the dil ke guitars of every girl start playing automatically when Shah Rukh Khan comes on-screen!

In 1988, he came as a Fauji, made everyone his Deewana and fulfilled his dream of becoming the King of the city of dreams and ruling it. 23 years ago, Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan had embraced parenthood with the birth of their firstborn, Aryan Khan and little did we know that November 12, 1997, had marked to be the birth of a future star. Ever since we have seen a glimpse of baby Aryan in Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, we realised that in future, he will give a tough competition to the stardom of his superstar father, Shah Rukh. As we wait with bated breath for Aryan’s debut in Bollywood, he is making us swoon with his BTS talents.
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 reminded us of Shah Rukh from his film, Jab Tak Hai Jaan.
After being the voice of Simba in The Lion King, Aryan Khan had impressed us with his conceptualisation and developer skills. On October 20, 2020, Shah Rukh Khan and Kolkata Knight Riders had released a new fan anthem, Laphao, and King Khan had given a special appearance in the song, which was a delight for his fans. It was none other than Shah Rukh’s 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, had information about the same.

It was on November 12, 2020, when Aryan Khan had turned 23 and his lovely family had posted pictures on their IG handles to wish him. Suhana Khan had posted a throwback picture from Shah Rukh Khan’s birthday celebration in Dubai to wish her ‘bestie’, Aryan. Posting a lovely picture with Aryan on her IG stories, Suhana had written, “Happy Birthday to my bestie. Jk eww xxx” atop it. Suhana and Aryan’s cousin, Alia Chhiba too, had posted a throwback picture from one of their parties in Dubai with the birthday boy. After Suhana and Alia, Gauri Khan had showered love on the birthday boy by posting a picture of Aryan, chilling and posing with his siblings, Suhana and AbRam Khan. Gauri had captioned her post as “Birthday boy.”
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."
