Yet another star kid is raring to make a foray into Bollywood. We are talking about superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s 17 year old son Aryan.
According to a report published in Hindustan Times, the head honcho of Yashraj Films Aditya Chopra is planning to launch his good friend SRK’s son in the ‘Dhoom’ series and in most probability, it’s going to be ‘Dhoom: 6’. It was earlier reported that Shah Rukh Khan himself has expressed a desire to be a part of the series and scripts were being written to accomodate the enormity of the characters. “If I get an opportunity, I would love to do it. I find it very cool,” SRK was quoted as saying.
The preparations of the movie starring Aryan, however, might take a few years as SRK wants Aryan to complete his education first and wants him to start when he turns 21. Aryan turned 17 yesterday (November 13).
The history of Indian cinema doesn’t have great success stories of ‘star kids’ especially when it comes to the parent being larger-than-life superstar. So, will Aryan be able to break the jinx? We shall see.
