Disney India has contracted Shah Rukh Khan and his child Aryan Khan for the Hindi-language name of the up and coming redo of The Lion King, it declared Monday. Shah Rukh Khan will voice Mufasa, the King of the Pride Lands and Simba’s dad, voiced by James Earl Jones in the 1994 vivified unique and the 2019 revamp. Aryan, then again, will voice Mufasa’s child and the film’s lead character Simba, voiced by Donald Glover in the revamp.
This is the second time Shah Rukh and his child Aryan are loaning their voices to an energized film. After 2004’s The Incredibles, where they additionally voiced the dad child couple, Mr. Unbelievable and Dash, known as Lajawab and Tej in the Hindi-language name of the Pixar film.
Shah Rukh is a very late expansion and somewhat of a trade for The Lion King redo. Which had at first contracted Kabir Bedi (Khoon Bhari Maang) to voice Mufasa in the trailers. All proof of the Hindi-language trailers has since been deleted from Disney India’s social stations. With the main evidence still accessible on Bedi’s Twitter account.
Having prominent stars voice characters in energized movies has been the standard for huge studios for some time now. Disney India did as such with the Hindi-language name of 2016’s The Jungle Book also. Om Puri voiced Bagheera, Priyanka Chopra was Kaa, Irrfan Khan was Baloo, Shefali Shah voiced Raksha, and Nana Patekar was Shere Khan.
