- The project would be supported by Red Chillies Entertainment
- SRK once revealed that Aryan has no intention of becoming an actor
Aryan Khan, the son of Shah Rukh and Gauri Khan, could soon make his debut as a writer, according to a recent report by Pinkvilla. According to the report, the project will be backed by SRK and Gauri Khan’s production house, Red Chillies Entertainment. A source close to the project told Pinkvilla, “Of all the ideas in development, the two in the forefront are a web series for Amazon Prime and a feature film that will be funded by Red Chillies Entertainment. The Amazon Prime series is expected to be about the life of a hardcore fan with some elements of thrill, however, full-length details are yet to be known. If all goes at the right pace, chances are the show will be lit by the platform this year itself.”
Aryan Khan was arrested in a drug case by the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) on October 2 last year after a raid on a cruise ship which was sailing off the coast of Mumbai. He was released on bail by the Bombay High Court a few weeks later.
In terms of work, Aryan Khan recently attended the Indian Premier League (IPL) auction with his sister Suhana Khan. The siblings replaced dad Shah Rukh Khan, co-owner of the Kolkata Knight Riders team, who did not attend the auction.
Speaking to David Letterman in 2019, Shah Rukh revealed his son Aryan has no intention of pursuing an acting career: “Aryan doesn’t have what it takes to be an actor and he’s realizes that too but he’s a good writer. I think wanting to be an actor has to come from within. Something that you really have to do and find a skill set that helps you do it and learn it. But I think I understood it from him when he told me that. He came to me and said, ‘I don’t think I want to act,'” Shah Rukh Khan said during the interview.
Shah Rukh Khan married Gauri Khan in 1991. The star couple are the father of 24-year-old Aryan (their eldest child), Suhana and 8-year-old AbRam. Suhana studied in New York and wishes to continue acting like her father.
