According to a report published on ETimes, Nishant's presence in the directorial is almost confirmed, however, not many details of his role are known. 

Actor Nishant praised Aryan Khan, son of superstar Shah Rukh Khan, for his adeptness in explaining scenes, which greatly facilitates the work. Aryan's command of language is remarkable, Nishant said adding, “Instead of relying on reference videos, he articulates scenes with words, enabling actors to envision and deliver their best performances."

For those who wish to know more, Nishant is also known for his roles in projects namely Jamai 2.0, Criminal Justice 2.0, and Pati, Patni Aur Woh.

What else do we know about Aryan Khan’s directorial?

Shah Rukh Khan's son, Aryan, is set to direct his first web series, Stardom, for Netflix. The six-part show, which Aryan both wrote and will direct, explores the world of Bollywood. Pre-production works and filming are underway. Last year, Pinkvilla reported that Red Chillies Entertainment, Shah Rukh's production company, is producing the series. Aryan is collaborating with a team of writers, including Lior Raz, for the script.

SRK's son, Aryan Khan, who studied filmmaking in the US, has always preferred directing to acting, his father had revealed. Shah Rukh has frequently stated that Aryan's passion lies in filmmaking, not acting. In an interview with Mumbai Mirror last year, SRK reiterated, "Aryan has no ambition of acting. He wants to direct films and is pursuing it in the US."
