Mumbai: After having conquered hearts with ‘The Jungle Book’ in 2016, Disney is all set to present its legendary franchise and the crown jewel- the live action version of ‘The Lion King’ – with ground-breaking technology that re-imagines the greatest story ever told. And who better to bring alive the magnificence of the film in Hindi than the King of Bollywood himself – Shah Rukh Khan; who pairs up with son – Aryan Khan to voice for King Mufasa and his son Simba respectively.

“The Lion King is that one movie that my entire family loves the most and it holds a very special place in our hearts. As a father, I can totally relate with Mufasa and the endearing relationship he shares with his son – Simba. The legacy of Lion King is timeless, and being a part of this iconic re-imagining with my son Aryan makes it extra special for me. We are most excited that AbRam is going to watch this.” said actor Shah Rukh Khan.
