Aamir Khan's son, Junaid Khan, is all set to step into Bollywood with Yash Raj Films' upcoming project, Maharaja. The film is yet to the officially announced. PeepingMoon.com, on October 20, 2020, exclusively informed its readers that Junaid will be starring opposite Sharvari in Maharaja. We then informed that Jaideep Ahlawat has also been roped in. As per the latest development, Maharaja has gone on floors today.
Junaid's sister, Ira Khan, on her Instagram, shared a picture with him and wished him luck as he embarked on a new journey. "Junnuu! This wasn't his first play or his first show or our first play together but.. today is his first day! Of shoot. And I love this picture. He's been acting for a few years now but its still new for me. He even acted my play so I should be over it... but I've been his younger sister longer than any of the other things. His professionalism is unparalleled. I'm super excited for him. Can't wait till he blows everyone away. And irritates them a little with his properness (HE REFUSES TO TELL ME ANYTHING ABOUT THE FILM. SO IRRITATING. I WANT INSIDE SCOOP) and then I can go to set and embarrass and trouble him!" Ira wrote.
Directed by Siddharth P Malhotra, Maharaja is said to be based on the 1862 Maharaj Libel Case. Jaideep will play Godman Jadunathji Brijratanji Maharaj while Junaid will be seen as a reformer and journalist Karsandas Mulji who exposed his wrongdoings.
