The Disney movie we all have been desperately waiting for, The Lion King is arriving on the big screen super soon.

And having a popular celebrity father-son duo, dub the Hindi version of the film makes us happier about it.
During yesterday's India vs Pakistan cricket match in the ongoing World Cup 2019, Shahrukh Khan shared a picture on his Instagram, in which he can be seen wearing a customised Team India jersey with his dearest son Aryan Khan. But instead of the regular jerseys saying their names, they read 'Mufasa' and 'Simba'. And that's when we realised, what is about to happen!
