On July 19, The Lion King joined movies such as the still-running Super 30 and Kabir Singh. The Jon Favreau -directed live-action version of the Disney film is a retelling of the original 1994 release The Lion King. The Hindi version of the movie has been dubbed by Shah Rukh Khan as Mufasa and Aryan Khan as Simba. In his review for The Lion King, film critic Saibal Chatterjee wrote: "One takeaway from the Hindi dub of The Lion King: Aryan Khan sounds so much like SRK. He does a great job as the adult Simba."
This Friday, The Lion King will be joined by Bollywood releases such as Judgementall Hai Kya and Arjun Patiala.
