Talking to Indian Express, Elizabeth Daley-Dean, USC School of Cinematic Arts, and Dr Priya Jaikumar-Professor and Chair of the Division of Cinema and Media Studies, USC School of Cinematic Arts opened up on how Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan was a student. Dr Jaikumar quipped that they never met the star kid when he was at the university because of COVID. She further added that there was one class called ‘Intro to Cinema’ that everyone had to take. “But I know of my graduate students who were TAs for that class because it is literally 350 students, two sections, and they worked with Aryan. So, we were actually talking to his dad (Shah Rukh) as well,” said the professor.


Priya also said that Aryan has a streaming show coming out and she remembered him saying that he was very influenced by his time at the USC and in Cinematic Arts so he will be working with 2-3 other people from there.
