Not once, not twice, or thrice. Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan has repeatedly turned down family friend Karan Johar’s offer to launch him as a hero.
Says a source in the know, “It started as a very serious offer. When Karan offered to launch Aryan, and Aryan said so, Karan thought, ‘Bachcha hai,ghar ki baat hai, aa jayega line pe(he’s a kid, it’s a family matter, he’ll come around).’ But then Aryan said no again and again.”
It was then that it dawned on Aryan’s family that the boy was seriously not interested in an acting career.
“Now Karan Johar has stopped suggesting it(a star launch) even as a joke.Aryan wants to be a filmmaker. In spite of his looks he is not interested in acting. Not only Karan Johar, even Zoya Akhtar offered to launch him in her adaptation of the Archies comicbooks. But no. It is sister Suhana who is the next-generation actor in Shah Rukh’s family.”
