Shah Rukh Khan’s son Aryan has been in the news for a while now, whether for speculations about his Bollywood debut or having a verified account on Instagram. Recently, it was being reported that Aryan will soon make his debut with Saif Ali Khan’s daughter Sara in a Karan Johar film.

Karan Johar, in an interview with Bombay Times, cleared the air on Aryan’s debut. Revealing that Aryan will not make his debut in the next four years, KJo said, “Aryan is my godchild. Currently, he is in Los Angeles and he has four years of university ahead of him. When he comes back, he is going to decide if he wants to be in the movies. And if he does, of course, I will be a big part of it as a director or just as a guiding support. For me, Aryan being launched is like my son being launched. I will be this hyper relative breathing down his neck.”

The Ae Dil Hai Mushkil director added that he feels “like a possessive parent” about Aryan. “I have held Aryan in my arms when he was six months old, and walked around the streets of London. Now he is a grownup, good looking boy with six packs and all set to face the world. I feel so proud. Of course, I track him all the time. When I see any images of him online, he gets messages from me in the middle of the night. I ask him, ‘What are you doing, who is this person with you in the frame?’ I feel like a possessive parent who wants to know exactly what he is up to,” he revealed.

Karan, who has launched star kids like Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan, had earlier told Hindustan Times, “Shah Rukh is beyond family to me. In fact, my equation with him has moved from him to his kids now. I always tell him, ‘I am going to maintain my youth quotient only because I want to launch Aryan. No one else can launch Aryan but me.'”
