“Of all the ideas in development, the two in the forefront are a web series for Amazon Prime and a feature film that will be funded by Red Chillies Entertainment. [production house owned by Shah Rukh Khan]. The Amazon Prime series is said to be about the life of a hardcore fan with some elements of thrill, however, the details of the feature films are yet to be 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 familiar with the development.
The scripts are currently in development with Aryan also co-writing one of the projects with author Bilal Siddiqi, who wrote ‘The Bard of Blood’, which has been adapted into a Shah Rukh-funded Netflix series.
Aryan has faced a tumultuous 2021 after his arrest in the cruise ship drug case in October where he was linked to narcotics use and trafficking in Mumbai. After spending 28 days in jail, he was finally released on bail.
Earlier this month, Aryan, along with his sister Suhana Khan, represented their father at the Indian Premier League cricket auction on behalf of Shah Rukh’s team, the Kolkata Knight Riders.
While Aryan is interested in other aspects of Shah Rukh’s business, Suhana is set to make her Bollywood debut soon. According to earlier reports, she has signed on for a web series directed by Zoya Akhtar for Netflix, based on the popular Archie Comics.
