The actor's 17-year-old son Junaid would reportedly assist Rajkumar Hirani in Peekay, starring Aamir Khan and Anushka Sharma. Vidhu Vinod Chopra, who will present the film, is apparently impressed with Junaid's eye for detail, reports Mumbai Mirror.
According to the tabloid, Hirani convinced Junaid to do the the project, and the obedient son had to in turn convince his father that he'll not neglect his studies.
The star son is now hunting for locations.
"Junaid has always been fascinated by the various aspects of filmmaking. He used to often accompany his father to the sets of his films. He always had a viewpoint. And Aamir was rather impressed with it," a source told the tabloid.
"What better way to begin his film career than assisting a director who has had a string of successful films - the Munna Bhai series and 3 Idiots," added the source.
