Aamir Khan's son Junaid embarks on acting career, Ira Khan shares pic from first day of shoot. See here
- Aamir Khan's daughter, Ira Khan has shared a picture of her brother, Junaid, on the first day of shoot for his debut film as an actor.
Sharing the post, she wrote: "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! #proud #excited #bigbrother #firstday #shoot". In the picture, Ira is seen kneeling and presenting him with a bunch of flowers.
According to a report in Mid Day, Junaid will make his Hindi film debut with a film called Maharaja. Directed by Sidharth P Malhotra, it is reportedly based on 1862's Maharaj libel case. He will play a character called Karsandas Mulji.
Junaid has been doing theatre for a while and assisted Rajkumar Hirani on PK. Ira, meanwhile, was in news when she made her relationship with fitness trainer Nupur Shikare Instagram official. Sharing a bunch of pictures, she wrote: "Its an honour to make promises with and to you."
