Shah Rukh Khan To Roar Solo In Lion King,Trade Experts Analyze

Shah Rukh Khan  is once again  all set to prove he has no competition . On July 19 , The Lion King to which he has given  voice in the  title role will  release in  four languages,without any competition from any  quarters.

The Lion King is the  only big release  on that Friday, And trade experts are already seeing it  as  the  next  blockbuster  after Kabir Singh.

Says  trade  analyst Atul Mohan,  “It will be  HUGE……With King Khan backing the  Hindi version  of   The Lion King, it has turned out to be KING SIZED.And then  to Shah Rukh’s son   Aryan Khan for  the  first time is  the icing on the cake. I am expecting records to be shattered.Since it falls in same genre as  The Jungle Book which broke all the records, this one will create new ones in India. The marketing team is doing a tremendous job. The buzz in the trade is very strong. The Lion will roar bigtime!”

 Film-trade  expert  Girish  Johar too feels The  Lion King would rock the  boxoffice. “Lion King is ONE OF THE MOST AWAITED films GLOBALLY! Its a mega-DISNEY release and they are leaving no stone unturned in going all out , giving their hearts out literally for this release of theirs. In India, too they have roped in top talents to dub for the local language release, front lining them all is Badhshah Khan, SRK for Mufasa!!! His son, Aryan dubbing forSimba is a surprise but surely a pleasant one. SRK Jr’s  debut in the industry. Them coming together has definitely created alot of interest amongst the audiences. The film is being promoted aggressively and will be lapped up by fans of Lion King and definitely of SRK. He will enable the film to reach a wider audience Targeting not only his fans but also kids and families across the board ! This MEGA film is a definite must watch all.”

However  another trade analyst Amod Mehra is  more cautious in his enthusiasm . “The Franchise is so big that the voice of SRK and his son will not make much of a difference.But I agree the Hindi business can get boosted by 10% for the curiosity of hearing the  voice  of Shah Rukh’s  son Aryan.”
