Aryan Khan has reportedly started shooting for his upcoming debut series. The star kid, who was embroiled in a drug case last year, is facing strong pressure and multiple challenges as he ventures into the field of entertainment. The eldest son of Bollywood’s Badshah Shah Rukh Khan has myriad things that are working his way from being exposed to the entertainment world since childhood, getting the debut quite easily without struggle, and immense fan following even before he has yet to contribute through his work.
Recently, it was reported that Aryan Khan had conducted a test shoot for his upcoming web series to be produced under the banner of his home production house Red Chillies Entertainment. Reportedly, the star son has not only written the script of the series but will also direct it. Aryan Khan is very much passionate about his debut project and has already begun the pre-production work.
SRK’s Fans are Expecting Aryan Khan to Make His Dad Proud
While Aryan has the right platform and backing and has even studied writing and filmmaking abroad, he also faces some strong challenges and the foremost is the comparison with his dad Shah Rukh who is a self-made superstar of Bollywood. Fans of SRK desperately want his son to shine and become super successful and the pressure can be too much for a youngster like Aryan to handle.
With social media playing a major role in making or breaking the career of a celebrity and with the drug case controversy behind him, every step of SRK’s son will be put under the scanner and dissected by the netizens.
OTT has Opened Doors for Fresh and Raw Talent in Large Numbers
With big OTT channels like Disney Plus Hotstar, Netflix, and Amazon Prime Video opening opportunities for fresh and raw actors, directors, producers, and story writers, the competition is getting stiffer day by day. In such a scenario, only good talent irrespective of backing or no backing can only last long.
From Vikrant Massey to Prateik Gandhi, actors who could not grab projects for the big screen have made an impact through OTT platforms and are now stars in their own rights in the world of entertainment.
So, Aryan Khan will not only have to compete with the present generation of actors from the film world but also with those who are OTT big wigs and are very good at their craft.
Galore of Star Kids Is Making Internal Competition Deadlier
Apart from Aryan, many other star kids with families having good standing in the film world are making an entry in big number. Earlier while a few kids of the Bollywood superstars got an opportunity like Abhishek Bachchan, Suny and Bobby Deol, today you can see a huge line of star kids including Tiger Shroff, Varun Dhawan, Ibraham Ali Khan, Ananya Panday, Sara Ali Khan, Janhvi Kapoor, Khushi Kapoor, Shanaya Kapoor and many more making a bee-line into the film world.
And they are attracting good projects. So for Aaryan, it would be important to carve a niche for himself among all this crowd of star kids.
Southern Movies are Ruling Roost Currently
Until now, Bollywood represented the pan-Indian film industry. However, movies like Baahubali, KGF, Pushpa: The Rise, and RRR have made such a huge impact that Southern movies are attracting more attention and box-office moolah as compared to the Bollywood flicks. Even actresses like Samantha and Rashmika are grabbing big projects in Bollywood.
In such a drastically changing scenario, proving his mettle can be a tough task for Aryan Khan.
