Such a disappointing thing to hear. Should have given simba voice to some other actor.

Oh my gosh STOP the crying about this ‘nepotism’ stupidity! There’s not a person here who wouldn’t do as much for their kids. Honestly, the noise you people make for the silliest thing. Especially the one who wrote ‘unfair’ and he’s ‘undeserving’. Gimme a break. So who IS deserving in your eyes? This poor kid has done NOTHING to deserve the hate you spew on him - for what? Being sired by Shah Rukh Khan? You’re harshly judging with zero validation. Shame

He starts buying everything now, first stores,carrier,award yo wife,then cover magazine to daughter and now this, what is next? and he has the guts to come with TedTalks to present people who struggled to make it big.

incredibly unfair. such an iconic film. SRK's son is not deserving of this golden opportunity. it should have been given to an actor that has worked his way to reach that level. incredibly disappointed with this decision by Disney.

Everyone is nepotist, stop hypocrisy!
