The actor-filmmaker’s elder son will soon begin his cinematic journey as an assistant director. But will he turn to acting?
Not many born on the other side of the ’90s know that Aamir Khan began his career in films as an assistant director (AD) in his family’s production house, and not as a mainstream lead actor. But look at him today – not only is he an A-list star of Bollywood, but also an acclaimed filmmaker and industry pioneer. He has also made a successful debut as TV host in Satyamev Jayate. Looks like now Aamir’s first child, his son Junaid, will be following in the footsteps of his dad.
Junaid, who studies in a South Mumbai college, will soon begin assisting director Rajkumar Hirani on Peekay, a film that stars Aamir and Anushka Sharma. Considering Aamir’s career graph, we can safely assume that his 20-year-old son too will make a smooth transition to Bollywood hero in no time. And of course, Aamir would be happy to launch him – but only if Junaid were to prove himself in auditions, we assume. But you tell us: Would you like to see Junaid Khan as a male lead in Bollywood?
