Shah Rukh Khan earlier announced that he and his son, Aryan Khan, will be dubbing for the Hindi version of The Lion King as Mufasa and Simba respectively. The proud father could not contain his excitement today and he took to Twitter to post his son’s teaser, calling him ‘Mera Simba’.

The new teaser features Aryan Khan as the voice of Simba. What caught our attention instantly is that Aryan’s voice sounds very similar to his father, leaving a lasting impact. It seems that the father has trained his kid quite well.
Last month, SRK took to social media and shared his introduction as Mufasa in the Hindi version of The Lion King.
