Time and time again, Shah Rukh Khan has informed the media that his son, Aryan Khan, has no interest in acting and is instead inclined towards the creative aspect of filmmaking. There have been constant reports of his long-term goal of becoming a director. And now Pinkvilla has learned exclusively that Aryan is taking small steps towards realizing his dreams. According to our sources, Aryan has been working in silence to develop multiple ideas, which have the potential to be developed into feature films and web series.

“Of all the ideas in development, the two in the forefront are a web series for Amazon Prime and a feature film funded by Red Chillies Entertainment. The Amazon Prime series is said to be about the life of a hardcore fan with a few elements of thrill, however, the details of the feature films are not yet known. If everything goes at the right pace, there is a good chance that the show will be lit by the platform this very year, “revealed a source close to the development .

The scripts are currently in the development phase and only once they have ticked off all the requirements of the streaming platform will they see the light of day. The aforementioned two ideas aren’t the only ideas he’s been working on, as there’s a lot of exciting stuff going on in the Red Chillies writers room with Aryan. The source reveals that Aryan is working on these topics with Bilal Siddiqi as a co-author. Interestingly, even SRK has spoken of his love for writing over the years, and it’s his son, who is now planning to step into that space.

His daughter, Suhana, is taking her first steps on the comedy front, looking to make her debut with the Zoya Akhtar-directed web-series for Netflix, based on Archie Comics. Meanwhile, SRK is wrapping up a 2-day schedule of the upcoming Atlee in Mumbai.
