Several fans also cheered him on. We are also equally excited!
Previously, ETimes reported that the project is a series and multiple actors have reportedly given auditions for the series. “Multiple actors have been giving auditions for the web series and going by the rate at which the work has started, the show may go on the floor by the end of the year,” a source told the publication.
The publication further reported that writer Bilal Siddiqui, who co-wrote the Netflix show Bard of Blood, produced by SRK’s Red Chillies Entertainment is working on the project with Aryan. According to reports, Jersey actor Prit Kamani might be a part of this show.
It was also reported that Aryan got acting offers from Karan Johar but the star kid refused to pursue it. Shah Rukh had been vocal about Aryan’s disinterest in acting and his inclination towards direction for a while now. However, Karan had envisioned him as an actor and even offered him a role.
“It started as a very serious offer. When Karan offered to launch Aryan, and Aryan said no, 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 kept saying no again and again,” Bollywood Hungama quoted its source as saying. The report further states that after Aryan’s family realised he is seriously not interested in acting, they stopped suggesting it.
