It will be really special to watch this movie with our little one, AbRam (Shah Rukh’s youngest son), as he is a big fan of the film. And watching his big brother and father voice the characters in this liveaction version is surely going to make it a memorable experience.” Yesterday, Shah Rukh had shared a photo in which Aryan and he were wearing the Indian jersey with names Mufasa and Simba.
