The teaser of Aryan Khan as 'Main Hoon Simba, Mufasa Ka Beta' interesting comes just a day after talks speculated that Simba Hindi’s trailer will be out this week.
Getting to voice the iconic father and son duo as King Mufasa and son Simba for the Hindi version of Disney's upcoming live-action film The Lion King, SRK said, "The Lion King has been, for not just me, but for so many people around the world, one of the favourite films that they have enjoyed with their families and kids," Shah Rukh said.
"There are only three films that one loved actually while growing up. One is The Lion King, followed by The Jungle Book and Bambi," he added.
"For one, it didn't have a human being in it, and it was a film that was based on the relationship of a father and a son. That was special."
"It's the kind of movie that you can watch with all your children, whatever age and stage they are at. Even without being an actor and just as an audience, the movie is a wholesome experience. It's a complete film," the actor said.
The Lion King release in India on July 19 in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
