Shah Rukh Khan reveals the real reason behind doing The Lion King!

You remember the teachings of your parents when they are not in your life: Shah Rukh Khan


It is rightfully said that 'parental love is the only love that is truly selfless, unconditional and forgiving' looks like Bollywood’s Shah Rukh Khan feels the same. SRK and his son Aryan Khan will be collaborating after 15 years, they had dubbed for the Hindi version of Disney Pixar’s The Incredibles, for Jon Favreau’s The Lion King. 

The 53-year-old actor took to his official social media handle, on Thursday, and shared a video clip that had Aryan’s voice-over as Simba. Praising his son, he wrote, "Mera Simba..."

Usually Bollywood’s Baadshah Khan does not look for a moral message in a movie he simply enjoys them for entertainment purposes. During a recent interview, SRK openly talked about the movie and the important message it has. He shared that The Lion King is special for him as it revolves around the special bond between a parent and his child. He said,

The story inheritably gives a lot of morals. I personally don't look for morals in a movie and enjoy it as pure entertainment. It is inheritably entertaining because it does talk about relationships. Many times, when kids are growing with their parents, they don't realise that what their parents say could actually come handy much later on. It's unfortunate that you remember the teachings of your parents when they are not in your life. Somewhere down the line, the story reflects that it's nicer to listen to your parents and understand the deeper meaning of what they are saying to you. It does teach you that our parents always live within us and their teachings never go away. Personally, I do feel the same; the small things that my father and mother said actually define me now. I realise it now and I didn't realise it then.


The live-action version of Disney's The Lion King is all set to be released in English, Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu in India. 

The film is directed by Jon Favreau and will feature Beyonce and Donald Glover in lead roles in the English version and for the Hindi version the studios have roped in none other than Shah Rukh Khan and his son Aryan Khan to play the role of Mufasa and Simba respectively. 

The Lion King is slated to release on July 17, 2019.
