SRK through his social media handles, expressed his enthusiasm and happiness. He wrote, "Glad to be a part of this journey … a timeless film. Voicing it in Hindi with my own Simba. The last time we did a film was around 15 years ago and it was 'Incredible' and this time around its even more fun. Hope everyone enjoys it 19th July onwards. #TheLionKing ".
While some just could not wait to see SRK and Aryan's collaboration, some gave a nepotism angle to this. Netizans pointed and said, 'Welcome to the nepotism club'
