Filmmaker Karan Johar, whom Kangana Ranaut famously calls the 'flagbearer of nepotism', has launched several star kids in Bollywood including Alia Bhatt, Janhvi Kapoor, Varun Dhawan, etc.
And it seems, he is all set to take Shah Rukh Khan's kids under his wings now.
According to media reports, KJo is planning to launch SRK's elder son Aryan in his upcoming directorial, Takht.
According to a report published in Pinkvilla, Aryan will be assisting KJo in Takht.
Yes! Aryan will be making his Bollywood debut as an assistant director.
Interestingly, SRK himself wants his son to work behind the cameras before facing them.
In fact, Aryan is also inclined towards filmmaking, and is studying the same in a leading foreign university.
Although no official announcement has been made about Aryan being the assistant director for Takht, KJo had once said that no one apart from him would launch SRK's kids.
SRK too reciprocated and had mentioned that it will be an honor for his son Aryan to work with such an accomplished director.
Well, this news would certainly make Aryan's huge fan base excited.
To recall, SRK has always maintained that his kids are free to pick any career path of their choice.
However, he pointed out that they first need to complete their studies.
"If Aryan wants to be a filmmaker, he needs to study for another five-six years and probably be an assistant to Karan after he finishes his film-making course," the actor had said once.
Talking about Takht, the movie will be a period drama based in the Mughal era.
It will star Anil Kapoor as Shah Jahan, Kareena Kapoor Khan as Shah Jahan's daughter Jahanara Begum, Ranveer Singh as Dara Shikoh, Vicky Kaushal as Aurangzeb, Alia Bhatt as Dara Shikoh's wife Begum Nadira Banu, Bhumi Pednekar as Aurangzeb's wife Dilras Banu Begum and Janhvi Kapoor as a slave.
