Not once, not twice, or thrice. Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan has repeatedly turned down family friend Karan Johar’s offer to launch him as a hero.
Says a source in the know, “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.”
It was later that it dawned upon Aryan’s family that Shah Rukh Khan’s son was seriously not interested in an acting career. “Now Karan Johar has stopped suggesting it (a star launch) even as a joke. Aryan wants to be a filmmaker. Despite his looks, he is not interested in acting. Not only Karan Johar, even Zoya Akhtar offered to launch him in her adaptation of the Archies comic books. But he said no. It is sister Suhana who is the next-generation actor in Shah Rukh’s family.”
