Just in the morning, the new teaser of the Hindi version of The Lion King dropped on the net and with that, the whole of social media went into a frenzy as to how closely Aryan Khan’s voice resembled that of Shah Rukh. Aryan has lent his voice to Simba, Mufasa’s son and fans are going gaga over the father-son duo’s collaboration on screen. Shah Rukh’s version of Mufasa had won several hearts already and now the older lad of SRK is already being deemed as the next superstar. Fans are still in disbelief and are still confused if it’s really Aryan or Shah Rukh behind the mic for Simba. And guess what, it’s not just you but even Shah Rukh who thinks they sound similar.
Don’t believe us? While thanking the fans for appreciating Aryan’s Simba, Shah also expressed his feelings as to how even he felt that Aryan sounds familiar. The actor took to Twitter and wrote, “Young Lions don’t tweet so on behalf of Simba #AryanKhan I want to thank u all for appreciating his effort. Also, thx to @disneyfilmindia the team at Sound Vision ( Mona Mayur gang) doesn’t his voice sound a bit familiar? Or is it just me?. ” Have a look at Shah Rukh’s tweet right here:
